ENEL GREEN POWER INAUGURATES THE NEW INTERACTIVE EXHIBITION IN THE ACQUORIA HYDRO POWER PLANT
• The Acquoria hydro power plant in Tivoli has become an interactive and multimedia experience to discover clean and renewable energy, an innovative way to get in touch with the main aspects of energy production and sustainability
• Thanks to the design by the multidisciplinary design agency Dotdotdot, the power plant has become a training and entertainment center where energy, an intangible element, becomes alive and present
GO ECO GREEN21 – The new permanent interactive exhibition at the Acquoria hydro power plant was inaugurated today. It is a multimedia experience to discover the five sources of clean and renewable energy: hydro, geothermal, wind, marine, and solar. The objective is to provide an innovative approach to describe how renewable energy is created and to highlight the excellence of the region. The exhibition was inaugurated by Mauro Alessandri, Lazio Region Infrastructure Councilor, Giuseppe Proietti, Mayor of Tivoli, Antonio Cammisecra, CEO of Enel Green Power, and Michele Bologna, Head of Communications Enel Green Power.
Antonio Cammisecra, CEO of Enel Green Power said: “With the Interactive Plants initiative we want to introduce the world of renewable energy, especially to the new generations, using simple and accessible language that explains the fundamental role they play in the energy transition process. The exhibition uses new media technologies to tell the story of the world of energy, emphasizing how innovation and sustainability are core elements of Enel’s industrial development model and key ingredients to strengthen our global leadership.”
“The installation for the Interactive Plants posed the great challenge of communicating intangible content, such as energy, making it tangible and experiential, and of conveying, through Interaction Design, complex topics, such as energy production or its relationship with the geography of the world. Our experience has enabled us to implement a considerable amount of technological and exhibit design experimentation. The Acquoria power plant project follows that of the Taccani power plant in Trezzo sull’Adda: a scalable installation that can be replicated in other power plants of Enel Green Power,” said Laura Dellamotta, co-founder and general manager of Dotdotdot.
The Interactive Plants project tells the story of energy in an innovative way, enveloping and fascinating its visitors, by setting up a narrative environment that, in its simplicity and adaptability to the different spaces of the facilities concerned, manages to move and involve people. The journey begins immediately with a spark: energy embedded in each of us. A camera equipped with depth sensors detects the movement of visitors, which is transformed into watts to quantify the energy produced by the body. There is no lack of historical aspects and the timeline of technological discoveries, but revised in an interactive light. The tour culminates in a circular and immersive environment, with a 360° projection that explains the operation of the five sources of energy using videos and graphic animations.
