Partner information
John Best launched EEEGR in March 2001 after noticing a significant gap in the energy industry – a lack of communication, understanding and co-operation across the various sectors in the eastern region. Yet there was a massive commercial and economic basis – not just for the main players but for thousands of businesses in the supply chain. So John pioneered the development of East of England Energy Group, now better known as EEEGR, and became its chief executive.
EEEgr is a powerful voice representing and promoting the whole energy sector in the region, and has a membership of 300 – ranging from international giants like Shell, British Energy and EDF Energy to the smallest supply companies. EEEgr holds two major conferences a year, plus dozens of events which encourage networking, a comprehensive website, a quarterly magazine and regular e-bulletins.
