In the heart of the hydroelectric factory in Broc, this energy information centre takes you on a fun, interactive visit to the world of electricity.

During your visit to the operating electric power station in Broc, you will discover the path of electricity from production to consumption and learn all about different types of energy, notably renewable energies. As an individual or as family, come and discover the exciting world of energy in our information centre. It is at the same time an active hydroelectric power plant.

Explanations will be followed by a demonstration of high tension effects.

The visit can end with a lovely walk from the Broc plant through the magnificent Gorges de la Jogne towards the dam that supplies its turbines (a one-hour walk).
