Learning about Green Energy…. HydroElectric Pionners (Norwegian style)
Following on from our recent ‘Green Energy‘ project in the UK, we were very keen to see just how Norway pioneered the use of Hydro-ElectricPower (HEP) at the Norwegian Museum of HydroPower & Industry …After seeing so many waterfalls during our visit, it was clear the natural resources were obviously in place. However, this wasn’t our first taste of HEP, as both girls are lucky to have farming friends in Mid Wales with their own commercial HEP project next to a wonderful campsite – Tyllwyd Farm (worth a visit!)
With over 18,000 visitors a year, its well organised and efficient… set in the most idyllic of settings it was restored after closing in 1989.
Is it worth a detour? If only to marvel in the beautiful surroundings, you’d be wise to add it to your list if you were in this area.
