BRE Support Package
Cornish community energy groups have been able to access a fantastic package of services from the BRE National Solar Centre free of charge thanks to a partnership with energyshare.
Developed as part of an energyfund Cornwall support package, community groups in Cornwall were able to benefit from up to 3 days of technical expertise from BRE helping them to assess the suitability of their location for solar energy.
After its initial success the support was then made available to all community energy groups and supported 18 solar energy projects across the county.
The BRE National Solar Centre, based at the Eden Project, is a centre for excellence for solar energy in the UK. They focus on driving innovation and best practice, generating knowledge and increasing confidence in the marketplace.
The BRE National Solar Centre have showcased their work with both Treverbyn Together and Menheniot Sports Association who benefitted from their expert knowledge and guidance while developing their solar projects.
