Sheffield Renewables

Sheffield Renewables

Sheffield Renewables were formed in 2007 and are legally incorporated as an Industrial and Provident Society for the Benefit of the Community (BenCom).

They are planning to install an Archimedes Screw turbine Jordan Dam near Meadowhall, on the Rotherham side of the Tinsley viaduct in 2013. Of all of Sheffield’s weirs this one could produce the most power. It is also the biggest community hydro power project yet in the UK to gain planning permission.

The scheme will cost £600,000 and is expected to generate 310,000 kWh a year and an income of £65,000 pa.

Sheffield Renewables

Sheffield Renewables was formed in 2009 and spent four years attempting to develop a hydro scheme at Jordan’s Dam. However they were forced to abandon it after they had raised the necessary finance through a community share offer due to changes demanded by the Environment Agency. They are now planning to use some of the money raised to invest in solar PV on community buildings.
