The Cornwall New Energy Project Cornwall


The Cornwall New Energy project will provide small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly with business support, which will aim to improve their economic and environmental performance. The project will support the SMEs in securing business opportunities, arising from the development and growth of a low carbon and local energy market in the region, as well as similar export opportunities beyond the region.

Specifically designed to help the enterprises overcome key barriers that they face, the Cornwall New Energy project will help them realise their full potential in this major, high growth sector.

As project lead, PRP will be working with the following delivery partners:

  • Building Research Establishment Ltd.
  • Community Works CIC.
  • University of Exeter.
  • Community Energy Plus.
