Renewable energy seminar


Cornwall College Business is hosting a free seminar next month for people working in the construction industry wanting to know more about the renewable energy sector.

The two-hour event on March 7 will be held in Cornwall College St Austell’s Skill’s Centre. The event is designed to give builders, plumbers and electricians access to the knowledge and qualifications they need to install solar panels and other renewable technologies.

Cornwall College Business will be highlighting the need for skills in installing renewable energy technologies, due to new Government initiatives such as the ‘Green Deal’ which will be rolled out later on in the year.

“It makes sense for construction businesses in Cornwall to take advantage of this offer, especially whilst there is the funding available,” said Justin Olosundé from Cornwall College. “Our specialist facilities across the different sites enable trades people to get up close to the renewable technologies to see how they work and learn how to install them.”

Delegates who attend the event will be offered a contribution of up to £500 to help pay for the cost of their training, subject to funding eligibility.
