Evening Opening Sponsor

Green Port Hull

The Green Port Hull vision is to establish Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire as a world class centre for renewable energy, creating wealth and employment for the region.

Hull City and East Riding Councils and Associated British Ports (ABP) along with partner organisations have been working together to ensure that this ambitious vision becomes a reality.

Through the Regional Growth Fund, £25.7m of funding has been secured for skills & employment, business support, and research and development to ensure that local people and business gain maximum benefit from the renewable energy sector. The Siemens Gamesa investment was the catalyst for the Green Port Hull vision. As well as offshore wind there are major opportunities in biofuels, waste to energy, solar, wave and tidal power generation.
