WREN: The move to Net Zero

On the 26th January 2023, Wadebridge Renewable Energy Network (WREN) held an Open Day at Wadebridge Town Hall.

The day was titled, ‘Your energy transition’ and was a day all about ‘the move to Net Zero’. WREN presented the main results of their major Net Zero Community project (NZCom) with their project partners, Community Energy Plus (CEP), Planet ASolutions and the University of Exeter.

So, what is NZCom? WREN states NZCom ‘aims to determine what is necessary for a community like ours to achieve net zero carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases and show how everyone in the community can make the transition to a net zero carbon future, not just those who can afford to.’

The open day was free to the community and ran from 11am – 9pm. Community energy network and climate action groups attended to share their knowledge, with one of the highlights being the showing of the latest Cornwall Climate Care film, the beautifully shot, 'Food for Thought', which features local farms and food producers.

Students from St Breock School, St Eval School, Wadebridge School and Callywith College also attended and engaged with various demonstrations. This included Wadebridge Bike Shop who hooked up their turbo trainer bikes to let the children experience cycling a mile, which saves two trees per mile!

If you missed the open day but would like to find out more, then pop along to WREN’s 'Energy Clinic', every 1st and 3rd Wednesday, from 10am to 1pm at the John Betjeman Centre.
