The topic of energy is on everyone's lips - be it in the discussion about global warming and climate protection or in relation to securing the energy supply with regard to the challenges of our future. The interactive exhibition "Experience Energy!" conveys the general topic of energy as well as that of energy supply in specific and is aimed at young and old. Learn about the relevant connections, observe your own energy consumption and take a look at the future of our energy supply.
Transport and mobility are naturally connected with energy. Whether we are walking, cycling, travelling by train or getting into a car, energy is needed for everything. Due to the laws of physics, it is what makes movement possible in the first place. Without energy, there is no mobility and no traffic. In times of climate change and discussions about sustainability, energy has become a crucial topic for the future. Although action is necessary, there is often a lack of knowledge of the complex interrelationships and their effects on society. Which is more ecological: an electric car or a car with a combustion engine? How does a fuel cell work? What innovative solutions are there to the challenges? The new focus exhibition "Experience Energy!" in our new building, the "House of Energy", offers a systematic and scientifically based overview of a wide variety of approaches and technologies for energy supply. Ways and possibilities are presented of how the sustainable energy supply of the future can look in combination with a careful use of resources. The interactive exhibition conveys the general topic of energy as well as energy supply in specific and is aimed at young and old. Learn about the relevant connections, observe your own energy consumption and take a look at the future of our energy supply.
The newly built "House of Energy" offers an attractive, long-term platform for the topic of energy. The building meets the Minergie-P standard, has photovoltaic modules on the roof and façade and an alternative energy centre with water utilisation. The prestigious new building is thus the ideal location for illustrating the focus topic.
The Swiss Museum of Transport deals intensively and scientifically with the topic of energy and brings together the various partners from politics, business and science. We are thus also becoming a platform for communicating the Swiss Energy Strategy 2050 and offering space for accompanying events and projects. From spring 2023, the topic of energy will play an important role in various exhibition areas and will also be addressed in the film theatre and the planetarium.
