Sheffield Renewables one step forward

Sheffield Renewables has submitted a planning application to build a hydropower scheme on Kelham Island in the centre of Sheffield. The project is a collaboration with Sheffield City Council and Kelham Island Museum.  John Hamshere, Chief Executive of Sheffield Industrial Museums Trust saidwe are very excited about this project because Kelham Island is one of the earliest water power sites in Sheffield. This scheme blends our commitment to sustainable energy with our responsibilities for preserving and promoting Sheffield's industrial heritage.
