The Powering The Future exhibition will shine a spotlight on one of the biggest challenges facing modern society – the future of our energy supply.
Opening on 10 December, the exhibition will help develop understanding and raise awareness of the science underpinning the critical issues related to future energy supply. Through a series of interactive exhibits, the centre will ask visitors how we can meet increasing energy demand reliably, at an acceptable economic and environmental cost.
Fergus Ewing, Scottish Energy Minister, said: “This is a vitally important asset in engaging the public in the energy debate – how we will continue to meet our growing energy needs in a secure, affordable and clean way.
“Powering the Future will provide the facts to help the public understand the means by which Scotland can achieve a successful transition to a low carbon economy.
“One area of the exhibition that I am excited about allows visitors to experience what it is like to be the “Energy Minister for the day” where they can learn about energy sources and mixes that will contribute to our future renewable energy and climate change targets.”
