Energy Information Centre

Örebro

Detailed description of the Good Practice

In 2007, a regional Energy Information Centre was established in Örebro. The Energy Information Centre includes a show room in which companies working in the field of energy may demonstrate their products, a conference room and a workshop for children and schools in which they may learn more about sustainable energy and technology.

The Energy Information Centre specifically develops school activities and concepts for energy education. The Energy Information Centre will try to function as a source of inspiration and knowledge for teachers and children in Örebro County when it comes to adopting and learning about intelligent energy behaviour.
