The year 2007 saw the installation of more than 150 solar panels. These allow the more than six thousand square metres of exhibition rooms in the science centre to be supplied with electricity for one hour each day. The photovoltaic generator provides about 100 kilowatts per hour per day. This is equivalent to the average consumption of four average homes. Touch tablets are available to visitors.
