Expansion of green energy showcase at Royal Cornwall Show

Cornish householders and businesses with an interest in green living can enjoy the Royal Cornwall Show’s biggest ever showcase of products and services from the sustainable energy sector as the popular green energy section of the show is expanded.

The Cornish social enterprise Community Energy Plus are working in partnership with Cornwall Council’s Green Cornwall programme to deliver the ‘Green Cornwall Show at the Royal Cornwall Show’,  building on the success of the show’s Green Energy Village marquee which has operated for the past 7 years.

Throughout the show on the 5th, 6th and 7th of June, the marquee space will be occupied by a wide range of green businesses and will provide interest and excitement for some of the show’s younger visitors by hosting a range of fun activities.   The Cornwall Council building opposite the marquee will also be incorporated into the newly formatted Green Cornwall Show; enabling many more businesses and projects within the sustainable energy sector to take part in the showcase.

Dr Tim Jones, Chief Executive of Community Energy Plus, commented: “We’re delighted to be working with Cornwall Council to deliver the Green Cornwall Show at the Royal Cornwall Show. Rising energy bills, growing awareness of the impacts of climate change and the opportunities to gain an income from generating renewable electricity and heat mean that many forward thinking householders in Cornwall are now harnessing green technologies.  I hope that show visitors will be inspired by what they see at the show to take action and help create a more sustainable future for Cornwall.”

Cllr Julian German, Cornwall Council’s Portfolio Holder for Economy and Culture said: “The green energy section of the Royal Cornwall Show has built the reputation as an excellent one-stop-shop for show visitors to access information and advice about energy efficiency, renewables and community energy projects.  We’re delighted to be working with Community Energy Plus to see the exhibition go from strength to strength.”
