Camp Kernow

Renewable energy for education
Project Type: Education

“Camp Kernow is a progressive environmental education site for young people in Cornwall and further afield.  The camp provides a real perspective into green energy, sustainable agriculture and responsible environmental recycling of waste.  Charlie Nicholson who runs the site has requested help from GPJ Consulting engineers who in turn have provided technical engineering support free of charge.  GPJ Consulting believe the millennial generation are left with an environmental legacy which they will have to deal with.  This includes responsible and economic energy usage, the need to reduce waste and to fully utilise low carbon technology.  In order to address the serious concerns about global warming the next generation need to be responsibly educated from a practical perspective.  We believe the activities at Camp Kernow go a long way in fulfilling this need.


GPJ Consulting fully support green technologies including anaerobic digestion, wind and solar generation, biomass energy and rainwater harvesting all of which are practically demonstrated at Camp Kernow.


“The very kind support of GPJ Consulting has been invaluable in the safe installation of a 1.5kW wind turbine at camp. The energy generated will power camp’s off-grid office and electric vehicle while demonstrating to young people how renewable energy technologies can provide clean energy to meet our needs.” Charlie Nicholson- Camp Kernow
