Renewable energy suppliers and clean energy installers plus builders who specialise in green building and organisations interested in sustainable housing.

Good Energy

Good Energy is the UK’s only 100% renewable electricity supplier. That means that they guarantee to supply exactly the amount of electricity that their customers consume either from their own renewable energy production or else from bought-in renewable energy supplies. Of all the electricity suppliers they are probably the keenest on customers reducing their demand and very much encourage micro-generation. ‘Green gas’ (or biomethane) is still some years away from being economically viable, so Good Energy have developed a product to work in conjunction with their gas tariff which will encourage the growth of renewable heat generation in the UK. If you're considering using Good Energy then click here and Transition Penwith will benefit financially in a small way.

Green Trust cic

Green Trust provides the finance and professional resources required to deliver wind and solar projects from feasibility to operation, and turn a community’s visions into reality. Green Trust is managed by experienced renewable energy professionals and supported by experienced suppliers. They will only progress a project that the majority (at least 55%) of the local community supports. Green Trust delivers wind and solar projects that work for the local community through: community profit; community ownership; affordable green electricity supply for local households and businesses; lease income for landowners that is competitive with commercial developers. Green Trust’s community interest company (CIC) legal structure and objectives mean the profit made by each project must go to the local community.

Community Power Cornwall

Community Power Cornwall has evolved through community led demand for the ownership and integration of renewable energy technologies into everyday lives and settings. They hope to enable local communities to collectively tackle the threats of climate change, energy security and uncontrollable fuel cost rises by generating clean, renewable energy locally involving the whole community in understanding and operations. Community ownership offers the opportunity to create a diverse, sustainable and secure energy supply infrastructure, under control of the community and with profits returned to the local economy. Community Power Cornwall provides an economic model through which Cornish communities can own and benefit from the development of renewable energy initiatives. They are developing a portfolio of renewable energy projects utilising wind, biomass, hydro and solar power. They will develop and operate small to medium scale community owned renewable energy installations with an initial focus on wind turbines generating electricity for sale via the national grid.

Renewable Energy Office for Cornwall

The REOC vision for Cornwall is: "To become an internationally recognised centre of excellence for a wide range of renewable energy technologies and to develop these so as to meet a high proportion of the county's energy needs." It aims to develop a cluster of renewable energy technologies. It will help co-ordinate development, provide information on possible sources of funding and lobby, when necessary. REOC will also provide emerging renewable energy companies with a useful forum for exchange of information and the potential for joint partnerships where two or more different technologies might produce a better business solution than one - for example wave and tidal stream working together, or anaerobic digestion sharing a hook up to the grid with an onshore wind farm and energy crop gasification plant. In time, it is hoped that the REOC forum will become Cornwall's renewable energy centre of excellence, providing an initial point of contact for inward investment in renewable energy and general renewable energy enquires.
