03.06.2020 – Whenever we need it, electricity comes reliably from the plug socket. For this to be the case, innumerable factors must interact within the power supply system. Axpo's new permanent exhibition "Smart Energy Lab" at Umwelt Arena Spreitenbach conveys these interrelationships in an interactive and playful way.
Electricity is only as intelligent as we make it. Under this motto, visitors to the new "Smart Energy Lab" exhibition can now gain insight into the complex and interlinked power supply system as a whole. Visitors will find five exhibits where they can balance power generation and consumption, trade on the electricity exchange or learn on the slide how much energy it takes to charge a mobile phone. The future power supply is also a topic of the exhibition. The challenge here is to ensure that Switzerland's electricity supply comes from the most sustainable sources possible - and at the same time to react to changes in the weather.
The permanent exhibition "Smart Energy Lab" explains the complex world of power supply in an easy-to-understand way on 200 square meters. Anyone who wants to can register for a guided tour of the exhibition. After the tour, individual aspects can be explored in greater depth in the library. Information about the various power consumers and power generation technologies is available there - on touch screens or in books.
The "Smart Energy Lab" at Umwelt Arena Spreitenbach is now open for school classes and all other interested parties (groups of up to 10 people). The hygiene requirements of the FOPH regarding corona pandemic are complied with at all times. There is a corresponding protection concept.
