9 May: Power to the People – Cornwall’s Climate Stories

Power to the People is the latest film in the superb Cornwall’s Climate Stories series directed by Calstock’s own Bryony Stokes.

Bryony will also be in attendance to provide more in depth background to the making of this film, she will also be accompanied by experts from the film to answer your energy questions.

With fantastic resources of wind, sun, tides, geothermal heat and critical minerals, Cornwall could drive the whole country’s clean energy revolution.

However, the UK’s 100-year-old electricity grid means this potential can’t currently be harnessed – while huge numbers of local people are living in poorly insulated homes they can’t afford to heat.

Power to the People explores the exciting opportunities and huge challenges facing us as we wean ourselves off fossil fuels – from a farmer who’s found a novel way to combine food production with solar panels, opportunities to use our historic heritage to power the future, and projects to harness the amazing untapped heat 5km down in the Earth’s crust.

Q&A panel 

Simon Miller from the Wadebridge renewable energy network
