South Yorkshire Energy Centre is a retrofitted Victorian house that opens all year round as a visitor centre. An end-terrace with no neighbours left, up to 2006 it would have been one of Sheffield's least energy-efficient homes! The work done to insulate the building and install renewable energy sources has made it a model of how to create a warm and low-cost home. On show are solar electricity and solar water heating, a ground source heat pump, different types of internal solid wall insulation, electricity monitoring and a solar light tube. There are also fun activities for all the family, including two energy-generating bikes!
