Landsvirkjun

Interactive exhibition in Ljósifoss Power Station

Life in the modern world seems unimaginable without electricity but how and when did this energy source become part of our lives? The exhibition offers guests the opportunity to experience the evolution of electricity, through stories of the past, showing just how rapidly this energy source became a necessity in our daily lives.

The fundamentals of electricity are explained through simple, entertaining and amazing experiments some of which historically led to the many significant steps man has taken in successfully harnessing this energy source.

Guests are also introduced to the renewable and sustainable energy generation methods used by Landsvirkjun such as hydropower, geothermal energy and wind energy.
