    32. 32. Drivers to establish a second operating office  To achieve the three year targets; additional resources are required.  The rate of growth in Aberdeen is being limited by a number of factors:  Aberdeen resource pool does not readily have Renewables experience  The cost of Aberdeen staff is higher due to the Oil & Gas industry salaries and cost of living  Technip has already drawn from the local Aberdeen Pool  Resourcing elsewhere and offering relocation is an additional cost.  On an ongoing basis we lose staff to O&G, this will apply to new recruits which we relocate to Aberdeen  We need a new workfront in which to recruit  There are additional reasons and benefits to a second office but the above reason alone is sufficient to proceed.32 12th September 2012 NGI Briefing

    45. 45. Fibre: regenerating local economiesResearch based on rural, town and city case studies found that the roll-out of fibre broadband could create an increase of between 0.3 and 0.5% growth in GVA over 15 yearsThis is a result of superfast broadband: – Improving business performance - allowing businesses to operate more efficiently and develop new products and services – Enabling new start up businesses – Facilitating job creation – Enabling flexible home workingExamples: London & Sunderland – BT’s roll-out of superfast broadband could create £20 billion in GVA for the London economy and £296 million in GVA for the Sunderland economy over 15years – When London and Sunderland have 100% access to fibre broadband a further £5.6 billion of GVA for London and £99 million of GVA for Sunderland could be generatedSource: Regeneris Economic Impact report, April 2012 -
    46. 46. Fibre – enabling job creation• Set up in 2008 by 3 inspirational young men in their home town of Newcastle, N Ireland• While studying Civil Engineering, they were highly doubtful of securing jobs in their chosen field once they graduated, so they set up their own business instead• Conduct energy assessments for building firms and councils across Ireland, and winning contracts in Great Britain too• Work is centred on large graphics files produced by architects, and complex computer programme to assess energy efficiency• Fibre connection means they can send and receive large files electronically, and can compete successfully with competitors more local to potential clients• Ability to locate in their home town has kept office accommodation costs down
    47. 47. Fibre – saving money & improving customerexperience• A family picture framing business• Based in Warren point, rural County Down• Building up business outside of Northern Ireland using their website as the main sales and engagement tool• Saving £6,000 per month in catalogue production and distribution costs• Able to increase number and quality of graphics on the website from 50 to 1000, and now to using YouTube to demonstrate their craftsmanship• Improving point-of-sale experience – electronic catalogues arrive while they speak on the phone, not 30 minutes later
    48. 48. Our Superfast broadband Fibre available to two-thirds of UK premises by end of 2014 – 11 million premises already passed. Main deployment via street cabinets delivering speeds of up to 80Mbps downstream and up to 20Mbps upstream Our direct fibre to the premises service is in early market deployment in locations across the UK, coming to Newcastle in 2013 Delivering speeds of 300Mbps downstream and 30Mbps upstream today We’ve created a fibre solution for office blocks – a UK first - and apartment buildings And from Spring 2013 it’s available “ON DEMAND” to anyone in a fibre-enabled area
