ESB is proud to partner with the world’s first permanent visitor centre dedicated to climate change, The Cool Planet Experience.

Located Powerscourt House in County Wicklow, Cool Planet Experience connects science, engineering, gaming, and drama to present the true story of climate change through an immersive and interactive journey.

ESB too, wants to start a conversation – particularly with the next generation - on climate change that identifies how individuals can contribute to a low carbon future. Drawing on our proud legacy of the past 90 years, ESB’s purpose is to create a brighter future for the customers and communities we serve. Our partnership with the Cool Planet Experience reflects ESB’s strategic focus on taking action and leadership in reducing Ireland’s carbon emissions from energy.

Participants at the Cool Planet Experience are encouraged to actively engage in the solutions that will help us transition to a low carbon economy.

As well as the interactive experience, Cool Planet deliver workshops and educational programmes for visiting schools and organisations while 26 regionally based “Cool Planet Champions” help spread the message nationally.

Cool Planet Experience is also part of the network of Science Foundation Ireland Discover Centres. Discover Centres support schools to engage in science education outside of the classroom by offering workshops and activities accredited by the SFI DPSM programme. The programme aims to introduce primary school students to science in a practical, hands-on, enjoyable and interactive way.
