The solar energy adventure!

One of the most interesting places I discovered on my trip through the French Cerdanya was the giant solar oven that people can visit to learn about using the sun and its energy. SOLAR OVEN GREAT ODEILLO (CNRS), is a mirror that's 40 meters tall and world famous for scientists. It's one of the most-visited places in this part of France every year. The photos of the people building the impressive oven and it seems that just landed somewhere in the space. The image of the furnace can be seen from almost all the valley of the Cerdanya. Sometimes one of the infinite mirrors flashes you and most surprisingly blind is the thick vegetation surrounding the area where you'll also find a playground. I recommend a visit, will not disappoint, not everything will be stones ;-)

Odeillo solar center

In June 2010 I visited the research center. It was a small tour of the outside of the facility. The size of the main building is impressive as is the sight of the hill full of reflective mirrors. We didn't have time to visit the museum, but would still recommend a visit.

Near Font Romeu, and few kilometers after leaving the French border from Andorra, is this interesting French center for solar energy research Odeillo. They have one of the two largest solar furnace in the world. There placed reflective panels that collect energy to make it converge on a huge parable in turn focuses on a circular target 40 cm in diameter, yielding 3000 degrees, the energy equivalent e 10000 soles. There is a small museum located where practical demonstrations aimed at the little ones do, and where the mechanism of production of solar energy is explained.

Cerca de Font Romeu, y pocos kilómetros tras dejar la frontera francesa desde Andorra, está este interesante centro francés de investigación sobre energía solar de Odeillo. Poseen uno de los dos hornos solares más grandes del mundo. Hay ubicados paneles reflectantes que recogen la energía para hacerla converger en una enorme parábola que a su vez la concentra en un objetivo circular de 40 cm de diámetro, obteniéndose 3000 grados, la energía equivalente e 10000 soles. Hay ubicado un pequeño museo donde se hacen demostraciones prácticas orientadas a los más pequeños, y donde se explica el mecanismo de obtención de la energía solar.

With a capacity of 1 megawatt and can reach temperatures of 3000 ° C, the solar oven Odeillo remains one of the world's most powerful. Provided that the crisis makes us better manage our limited space: Earth.

D'une capacité de 1 mégawatt et pouvant atteindre des températures de 3000°c, le four solaire d'Odeillo reste un des plus puissants du monde. Pourvu que la crise nous incite à mieux gérer notre espace limité: La terre.

Bien que réalisé en 1970, le four solaire d'Odeillo reste encore un des plus puissants au monde. Que la crise de 2008 nous aide à trouver notre voie conciliant le développement et une planète propre à laisser à nos enfants.
