The digital marketing communications company will identify and promote the many energy initiatives happening across Cornwall, creating a focal point for Cornish innovation in the sustainable energy sector.

It is hoped the investment will help create 20 new jobs at the company’s offices in Newquay.

Rob Love, executive director of parent company KEO Digital, said: “This investment allows us to not only create opportunities for Cornish people to build and develop their skills in the county, but to celebrate the brilliant energy projects happening around Cornwall.

“Cornwall has the potential to be the best place in the world to innovate in energy – it’s a really strong story that deserves to be told.”

The GBI programme is funded through the European Regional Development Fund.
