Exploring Renewable Energy

Museum of Science, Boston

An Energy Challenge

We need energy for our everyday lives — to power our buildings and personal devices, to transport goods, to travel. Yet, the energy sources we've come to rely upon, like oil, gas, and coal, will eventually run out.

A Renewable Solution

Our planet enjoys resources that replenish constantly, including sunlight, wind, moving water, and geothermal heat.

Plug In

With our energy needs apparent, empower yourself with knowledge about these renewable sources and be inspired to find new ways to solve our local and global energy needs.

Powering the Boston Skyline: It takes a mix of energy sources to power our city. Each source has advantages and challenges. In the "Power Boston" area of the Energized! exhibit, you can explore the sources and make your choices.
