John Reynolds, Chairman Councillor John Reynolds Renewables East and EEDA Chairman’s Introduction As Renewables East moves into its seventh year of operation, we can look back on a year that, without doubt, has been one of the busiest - and one of the best - 12 month periods not just for the company but also for the wider renewables industry. Given the current economic climate, it is quite of the Year title. Of course JDR Cables have It is not just national issues causing delays.

Here, Managing Director James Beal looks back over an intense 12 months. James Beal Managing Director’s Review Without doubt the single biggest challenge for the Renewables East team over the last year has being keeping up to date with the enormous changes to the renewable energy and low carbon world through emerging EU, national and local strategies, policies and actions. It is clear that renewable energy is now becoming funded by the East of England Development Latest figures from the Department of Energy and Climate Change part of the mainstream business and investment Agency (EEDA) and the European Regional processes.
