Imparting energy knowledge

Update COVID-19

Due to corona virus, it is not possible to borrow the experimental kits at the moment. We would like to draw your attention to our YouTube channel, which offers exciting videos on renewable energy production. We thank you for your understanding.

Axpo wants to share its knowledge on energy. We provide special experimental cases for school children to learn about wind and solar energy.
