Introducing Energy House

Salford Energy House is the world’s first full sized, two bedroom, brick built terraced house constructed inside an environmentally controllable chamber. Collaborating with specialist staff in the solution-focused Energy House, the residency will explore how effective common energy efficient solutions actually are.

Energy House Laboratories have been awarded a major research contract addressing the problem of sustainable retrofit of existing housing, looking at how we can improve energy consumption and internal conditions of our existing homes. Energy House is fully furnished and packed with a vast array of sensors that can monitor a wide range of variables, this unique facility allows rain, snow, wind and temperature to be specified to precise levels, enabling our research team and their industry partners to thoroughly test products designed to improve the energy efficiency of our homes.

Stephanie Wynne and Steve McCoy of the photography partnership McCoy Wynne have been awarded a residency by Open Eye Gallery and University of Salford Art Collection in collaboration with Salford Energy House. The residency will explore positive solutions to the climate crisis – both as creative subject matter and as an artistic practice monitoring their carbon footprint. Much of their work considers aspects of representation of the landscape and built environments.

Over the next two years Open Eye Gallery is working with a range of partners to develop a programme of residencies looking at climate change. This work will contribute to LOOK Photo Biennial 2022 which has a focus on climate change explored via cultural exchange with countries including Australia. Across this programme we hope to work with some of the complexities of this agenda, recognising that many people feel impotent in the face of mainstream ‘disaster focused’ media coverage and that this has a negative effect on public engagement with positive change. 

From 2021 onwards the work of the University of Salford Art Collection team will focus on environmental sustainability, artist development and placemaking. This Energy House residency is a pilot project, sitting within the existing framework of working with artists from the North and digital technologies, and  building on previous work of pairing academics with artists.
