Discussing Renewable Energy in Cornwall . . .
Duchy College Rosewarne welcomed Tim German, Renewable Energy and Partnerships Manager for Cornwall Council, this week as he gave a seminar and question and answer session to a lecture theatre of attentive students and guests.
Tim, who is also the Chairman of the Council of Cornwall College Camborne and a member of the advisory board for the University of Exeter in Cornwall, spoke about the future of renewable energy in Cornwall as well as a number of policies and initiatives.
The seminar covered the wide range of technologies and resources from which Cornwall and its communities can benefit. Students and staff from both Duchy and Cornwall College heard about initial plans for a South West Marine Energy Park, learning how the plans will accelerate the development of the marine energy industry as well increasing the opportunities to utilise the untapped wave and tidal power around Cornwall, Plymouth and Bristol.
Cornwall College student Andrew Gool, from Camborne, who is studying the Renewable Energy Technologies Foundation Degree said: “It was a really good seminar, lots of interesting topics discussed and all very relevant to our course. I would definitely come along to another one.”
Andrew Counsell, Head of Duchy College, said: “We thank Tim for coming in and speaking to our students, it was a great opportunity for them to find out more about local renewable energy developments.”
The seminar series has been organised by the Rural Business School at Duchy College and has been put together primarily for students and staff, but is also open to guests where availability allows.
