A Camborne-based energy efficiency charity has secured £170k from the Government’s Transition Fund.
Community Energy Plus (CEP) works on projects throughout Cornwall to provide advice and support for renewable energy and energy efficiency projects, to reduce carbon emissions that contribute to climate change.
The funding has been awarded to help the charity adapt to the changing funding climate and develop new services to sit alongside and financially support its education and fuel poverty prevention services.
Development Director Dr Tim Jones said: “It’s an exciting time to be working within the energy conservation sector. Businesses, organisations and householders are becoming increasingly aware of the need to become more sustainable and the advantages of energy efficiency and generating renewable energy.
“The Transition funding provides an important boost to help us play to our strengths and develop new services to meet these needs while becoming a more robust charity.”
