Reykjanes Power Plant

The entire Reykjanes Peninsula is a hotbed of geothermal activity and is populated by a number of volcanoes. As a result two power plants have been stationed there to harness this clean energy; Svartsengi, whose runoff creates the famous Blue Lagoon, and the Reykjanes Power Plant completed in 2012 which houses the Power Plant Earth exhibit.

At this unique exhibition learn in-depth how Icelanders experience the benefits of clean thermal energy in their daily lives. A favorite feature of the exhibition is a geothermal turbine generating enough renewable energy to run the capital city for an entire day.
