Energy open house
Doors open to the public: Discover all the chances to see Enel Green Power’s renewable power plants up close
Enter the heart of sustainability
There are many ways to get better acquainted with the world of sustainable energy. The most exciting is a visit to the heart of the places that produce it. Open Power Plants, Interactive Power Plants and the Museum of Geothermics are three experiences that Enel Green Power offers everyone - young and old, families and students - to learn more about renewable energy.
Discover more about the two formats that invite you to cross the threshold of our power plants and the Larderello Museum.
The service is currently suspended in compliance with national government provisions.
Delve into the heart of energy
The journey begins right away with a suggestion: energy is within each of us. A thermal imaging camera shows people how many Wh (watt-hours) they can generate just with the movement of their bodies. There are plenty of historical aspects and a timeline of technological discoveries, reimagined interactively: the timeline culminates in a wonderful 360-degree video, to understand how all energy sources work.
What gives substance and content to this story-telling project isn’t Enel Green Power, but science. Because renewables are the scientifically recognized answer to decarbonization, and science is what speaks to visitors, using research from the most authoritative sources and a totally agnostic approach. The pros and cons of every choice.
An interactive, technological and multimedia museum itinerary
The energy and culture of the present projected into a more renewable future. The new Geothermics Museum is near Enel Green Power’s Larderello offices.
"The veins pour forth smoking waters because of the vapors the earth has in her belly, who draws them up from the abyss".
Dante Alighieri, The Rhymes, Book VI, 1296
The esteemed poet used these words to depict geothermal lands in the warm heart of Tuscany. Today, the history of Earth’s energy is in the Larderello Geothermics Museum in the municipal territory of Pomarance (Pisa) near Enel Green Power’s offices.
