A grant for an energy survey was obtained by CMPC, which has been undertaken. Unfortunately, the survey did not identify opportunities for delivering alternative/cheaper energy resources within Combe Martin, at a level necessary for business investment. Whilst there are means of providing energy for individual households, they are not at the scale required to encourage inward investment.
The Project will be reviewed at intervals dependent on technological change and funding opportunities.

Combe Martins environment has the potential to deliver cheaper energy, potentially for both business and private users. The potential exists to produce hydro-electric, solar, wind, tidal, heat exchange and bio-mass power.
A survey to identify options should be undertaken.
