Wadebridge could become home to an energy market.

It would mean new jobs in the area and could also save some of the £13.5 million the town is spending on energy.

The Renewable Energy Network is holding an exhibition this week. They are inviting people to share their thoughts on the future of the town.

This follows Wadebridge's historical reputation of innovation.

It is designed to to lead an informal discussion about how innovation could be the future of the town, as well as the past.

Wadebridge now has some of the fastest broadband speeds in Europe.

Stephen Frankel, from the Wadebridge Renewable Energy Network, said:  "One of the things that concerns many people is how can we keep our brilliant young people here. If they want to have good careers how can we create good careers here for them? And this is one of the ways we can do that."

The exhibition is on show on Saturday 21st September at Wadebridge Town Hall.
