25 SOREC A Model of a Successful ERDF Project Pam Jones, Project Officer ERDF Technical Assistance

26 SOLENT OFFSHORE RENEWABLE ENERGY CONSORTIUM SOREC A business support organisation for the offshore renewable energy industry in the South East of England Supported by ERDF funding until 2015 Working with companies for a low carbon energy future

27 SOREC s objectives Provide grant funding for SMEs within the offshore renewable industry, or for those wanting to move into the sector Support transformational product development and technology transfer Stimulate the development of the UK supply chain for offshore renewables Provide information, intelligence and research to potential participants in the sector

28 Funding Support SOREC enabled us to push forward with development of a new product and bring it to market quicker than would have otherwise been possible. It has helped us invest in critical new testing instruments for solving production issues in wind turbine manufacture. How?

29 Funding for SMEs ERDF grant fund providing 50% of project funding, up to maximum of 50,000 per recipient Emphasis on job creation User-friendly application process, guidance through claim process Speedy payment process

30 Innovation and Tech Support We now have an international patent for the turbine and a UK patent application in progress for the mounting structure. We have been able to prove the performance of the product so can now proceed in bringing the product to market. How?

31 Innovation and Tech Transfer Innovation vouchers providing 50% funding for innovation costs (Intellectual Property, patenting, prototyping, testing), up to 5000 Innovation Events to bring together UK Knowledge base institutions and SMEs Delivery partner - Southampton Solent University Mapping of offshore renewables research capabilities of all universities in region Knowledge Transfer Partnership match making service

32 Supply Chain Development I have moved into this sector and SOREC has been a major part of that decision because of the contacts and support it has given to my company. SOREC has helped us to build a broader picture of the industry within our local area and recognise the opportunities closer to us. We have also had the chance to establish connections with clients and suppliers. How?

33 Supply Chain Development Meet the Buyer style events to bring SMEs face-toface with large companies Seminars to raise awareness of requirements SMEs must fulfil to compete for supply contracts Mentoring to help SMEs demonstrate supply readiness CompeteFor supply portal for offshore renewable projects

34 What worked well? Grant programme Raising awareness in Supply Chain Events SOREC has helped us to network and gain a better understanding of the sector and the opportunities it offers as well as the problems that need to be solved.

35 The conference was a great day of information for a newbie like me. It has been an excellent day, and we have gained a great deal of information to take our idea forward. As a new business, it has been very useful for me to find out ways of finding business via the portal. It has also highlighted how much I need to have in place to be business ready.

36 I have been very impressed with the outlook SOREC have when it comes to helping local businesses. Being a local family run business we believe that we can be a great asset in supplying to other companies involved. SOREC has enabled us to conduct a project that allowed us to employ a number of people and expand. Keep information flowing on any future projects in the area. In the words of the beneficiaries SOREC have been just fantastic in guiding and helping us to fund our business development. Excellent service, committed to helping local businesses. Continue to provide knowledge sharing and networking events for the sector, attracting representatives from the leading manufacturers.
