Following on from my last blog “going green is good business” I’d like to highlight two business support initiatives operational in Cornwall and Isles of Scilly: Cornwall New Energy and Tevi.

I am hopeful that both of these organisations will be presenting at my breakfast briefing at our Truro office on 8 January 2019 and will come with a few case studies of businesses they have assisted and the bottom line impact those businesses. For now the briefest of overviews on these two EU funded initiatives:
