Visitor Centre

If only...

This is where you can find the information you need to enjoy Greening the Spark so you can make the most of your visit. Here are your options:

  • To learn more about it: go to the background information page
  • To see what it does: watch the grid control panel working and see the sun and wind powering the solar and wind farms
  • If you want “hands-on”: you can take control and be a real-time grid operator, trying to satisfy consumer demand without blackouts or surplus and keeping the storage elements topped up
  • If you want a real challenge: you can go into game mode and see if you can keep the grid functioning with time speeded up, terrible weather and limited energy storage. Game results and frequently asked questions are stored in an online database.

Go for it…!
