Our energy, our future

Coastal Communities Fund

WREN has been successful in securing funding through the Coastal Communities Fund

ccflogoStephen Frankel, Chair of WREN, said 'This £100,000 contribution will be a great help to add to our capacity to bring the benefits of renewable energy and energy saving to the town. WREN is a not-for-profit cooperative, owned by its 800 members, and is designed to become a self-sustaining business that will bring jobs, investment and income for good causes to the town. But it is difficult to start a business with no investment funds and on volunteer effort alone. This allocation from the Coastal Communities Fund gives Wadebridge a very strong platform for securing all the benefits of the low carbon economy, making energy less of a cost, and more of an asset, and protecting the local economy in these uncertain times. It is also very encouraging that Wadebridge has been so successful in this very competitive process, as this shows that we must be heading in the right direction.'

The WREN Annual General Meeting has been announced for Tuesday 30th September 2014 at 7 p.m. in Wadebridge Town Hall. 


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.
