Blyth Energy Central

The energy cluster across the Blyth estuary and wider hinterland currently supports around 2,700 jobs, with key businesses including the Port of Blyth, Royal IHC and TFKables/JDR Cable Systems. Blyth is also home to the R&D and testing facilities of the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult. There are significant further employment opportunities associated with offshore renewables, electrification and wider infrastructure – reflecting port access and renewable energy supply. IZ tax benefits would provide a clear incentive for investment at scale – alongside wider IZ benefits around skills and innovation.
