From Monday 22nd until Saturday 27th September the Hub on Manchester Road in Stocksbridge will be hosting the ‘Stocksbridge Energy Future’ exhibition.

The aim of the event is to explore the potential for generating energy from renewable energy resources in the Stocksbridge area.

The exhibition will be open every day from 10.00am til 5.00pm, and from 10.00am til 1.00pm on Saturday.

On Friday 26th at 7.00pm there will be a series of short talks by the residents of Stocksbridge and academics who have put this exhibition together.

Some of the themes explored include harvesting heat from the mine network to heat houses and community buildings, burning locally grown biomass, using hydro power and solar energy.
