WREN to take over the Green Energy Village at the Royal Cornwall Show, 2013
We are pleased to inform you that Wadebridge Renewable Energy Network (WREN) will, with the support of Cornwall Development Company, take over coordinating the Green Energy Village at the Royal Cornwall Show 2013.
The Royal Cornwall Show is Cornwall’s largest event, with 114,000 visitors attending the show in 2012. A significant proportion of this footfall visits the Green Energy Village as the first port of call for finding out more about low carbon technologies in a credible environment. Therefore, hiring a stand in the Green Energy Village is an affordable, efficient solution for companies in the green sector wanting to promote their business. It provides a great opportunity for visitors and traders alike to connect, discover, collaborate and trade, all under one roof. The WREN Green Energy Village 2013 will showcase exciting talks from experts of this industry, diverse exhibitions, and presence from third sector organisations.
Vote for locally owned energy
The Wadebridge Renewable Energy Network (WREN) has applied for two grants from Energyfund Cornwall to make a significant step forward for locally-owned community energy. However, to have a chance of winning them it needs to demonstrate support through on-line voting by its supporters for both projects.
The 5 Wren note made its debut at Wadebridge Museum on 30th July.
The Wren is Wadebridge’s local currency, the only one in Cornwall.Read more...
A £10,000 fund is available for community projects to benefit people living in Wadebridge, St Kew, St Mabyn and Egloshayle.
The money comes from the Middle Treworder Solar Farm under a “Section 106” agreement made when it was given permission to go ahead, and is available as grants to voluntary and not-for-profit organisations and community groups in the area around the solar farm.Read more...
