Each area has a unique mix of benefits for companies locating there such as reduced business rates, accelerated planning process and tax incentives. Use this event as an opportunity to develop a valuable overview of each CORE area, leaving with a detailed knowledge of existing and potential installation and O&M bases, local supply chains and crucially, having identified potential partner companies.
