The Friends of the Berlin Collection of Historic Plant Parts and Electricity and Heating Supply Technology were founded on 10 May 2001 by Bewag (Berliner Elektrizitätswerke AG). This non-profit association runs the Berlin Museum of Energy in the former battery storage plant on the site of the former Steglitz thermal power station. The museum displays the development of energy supply technology and illustrates its links with ‘Elektropolis’ Berlin. It is especially intended for getting young people interested in energy supply technology. The Museum of Energy is dedicated to various technologies including power station technology, grid technology, public street lighting, communications technology, measurement technology, workplace safety and application technology. The management board and all the staff at the Museum of Energy are volunteers, which means that you can only visit the museum after making a telephone appointment. For guided tours, the museum chooses the staff best able in each case to match visitors’ specific interests.
