On Wednesday, Oct 2nd Cornwall New Energy delivered its
final annual conference as part of a celebration of the project's achievements
over the past two and a half years.
The conference agenda was well received with over 110 delegates
listening to our keynote speaker Steve Jermy from the Cornwall and Isles of
Scilly Growth Hub.
There were a number of elective presentations highlighting
technologies and industry developments that had a particular interest to
delegates. These were in the areas of electric vehicle charging and the University of Exeter's new 'microgrid testing facility' that will be housed in the
REEF building at their Tremough campus. There was also a general session on the
top ten things businesses need to consider when developing a low carbon
strategy. This saw some lively debate and discussion as businesses grappled
with the need to decouple business growth from traditional carbon intensive
There was also a trade show featuring 12 suppliers from across the
network all of whom had new products and services to showcase to the business
Part of the day was also taken by looking at the community agenda
on low cost affordable housing and community energy projects. This was
delivered by our project partners; Community Works and Community Energy Plus.
