The Pete Project

The aim of the trial is to investigate the potential for intelligent household technologies to provide a balancing service to the electricity grid. The individual sites will be connected, via a unique intelligent function of the hot water tanks and batteries, to the Cloud, where their output will be aggregated to provide a capacity to the grid.

St Austell wins £1.1m funding from the Coastal Communities Fund Application

Saturday 15th September 2018 11:09am

The St Austell Bay Economic Forum (SABEF) has been awarded over £1million to fund its bold vision to re-energise St Austell and the surrounding clay communities.

The £1.1m award from the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) will be used to fund the SABEF “Re-imagining St Austell – A Green and Ceramic Cultural Centre” project, using ceramics and planting in the public realm to create a vibrant new cultural centre covering the town and wider communities.

The unique combination of ceramics and plants will combine to strengthen identity and sense of place, support local creativity and engage communities, while the annual Garden and Whitegold Festivals will provide the focus for these activities, attracting local, national and international supporters.

The ceramics project will make artworks in clay and other media that explore the culture of the clay country, make opportunities for local creative people and help develop their skills and experience by working with the best artists in the world.

Simultaneously, the garden project will use local plants to create visually stunning displays while developing horticulture skills in the area.

The bold project will stimulate economic growth by encouraging new visitors and increasing the length of time that people stay in the area. In turn, the increase in tourist expenditure will stimulate demand for improved accommodation and expand the food and drink sector.
