Art of Sustainable Energy Project

Art-of-Sustainability

Sustainability is an approach to meeting the needs of the present, without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own. It takes into account the short and long-term ecological, social, and economic consequences of our actions and emphasizes both environmental and human well-being as essential ends in themselves.

Recent technological advancements in energy storage, generation, and transportation are converging to form both opportunities and threats. It is critical that we understand the current evolution to begin planning for a smarter, and more efficient energy system.

The Whites Lane microGRID project is an example of how many key partners can work together to bring these emerging technologies to a small, electricity supply system in downtown Woodstock. The microGRID is located behind the Art Gallery, on the roof of Woodstock Hydro. Whites Lane is the alleyway that runs between the neighbouring buildings, and is named after the local turn-of-the-century businessman John White.

This exhibit is a collaboration between Woodstock Hydro and the Woodstock Art Gallery. It is a vehicle to share with the public a vision for a renewable and sustainable future. The photographs on display were created in locations around Ontario by students from the Environmental Visual Communication Program at Fleming College.

We invite you to be a partner in this transition and encourage you to share your own thoughts and concerns as we work together to build a clean, and sustainable energy future.
