Norfolk and Suffolk Clean Growth Taskforce
Wednesday 5th October 2022
Agenda Item 7
Industrial Decarbonisation in Norfolk and Suffolk
Summary
This paper seeks to update the Taskforce on introductory discussions the LEP and the County
Councils have had with BEIS with respect the Industrial Decarbonisation.
Recommendation
Provide a steer with respect to industrial decarbonisation in Norfolk and Suffolk and
any potential pilot proposition.
Background
The point source emitters for Norfolk and Suffolk are included in Appendix B. This shows
that 90% of all of the emissions from ‘point sources’ in Norfolk and Suffolk are from the top 9
locations as follows:
S

Operator
Local Authority
Great Yarmouth Power Station RWE Generation UK plc Great Yarmouth
Wissington British Sugar Plc KL&WN
Bury St Edmunds British Sugar Plc West Suffolk
Kings Lynn Power Station Centrica K L Limited KL&WN
Saddlebow Paper Mill Palm Paper Limited KL&WN
Ipswich Suez Recycling and Recovery Mid Suffolk
Bacton Terminal 3 PERENCO UK LIMITED North Norfolk
Cantley British Sugar Plc Broadland
Bacton Interconnector (UK) Limited North Norfolk
Conversations are ongoing with the relevant local authorities to understand the current
position and their discussions with these point source emitters to ensure collaborative join
up: a key ambition of the Taskforce.
Initial discussions have taken place with British Sugar and Suez and meetings are currently
being sought with RWE, Perenco and Interconnector.
Industrial Decarbonisation
The Industrial Decarbonisation Strategy focuses on 6 national clusters: Grangemouth,
Humberside, Merseyside, South Wales, Southampton and Teeside;
Each of these locations has its own ‘plan’ with respect to Industrial Decarbonisation.
BEIS approached the New Anglia LEP and Norfolk County Council in the first instance to
discuss industrial decarbonisation in locations outside these clusters or as the Strategy
refers to them: dispersed clusters. We believe the initial approach was based on the fact
that many of the larger point source emitters listed above are located in Norfolk.
The introductory call was joined by Suffolk County Council at the request to New Anglia LEP
and sought to consider what a ‘plan’ for Norfolk and Suffolk might look like.
The meeting agreed to begin to scope out thinking with respect to our strategic opportunities
and any key themes coming out of discussion with point source emitters. It was also
considered that thinking needed to broaden out to include other key industrial/commercial
locations as well as key projects being advanced in the region i.e. Freeport East.
While thinking is still very much in the early phases members of the Taskforce are asked for
their thoughts/input into this workstream with respect to a potential pilot proposition.
Recommendation
Provide a steer with respect to industrial decarbonisation in Norfolk and Suffolk and
any potential pilot proposition.
