The Energy & Industry hub showcases the impressive buildings and engineering work of Hungarian inventors who have contributed significantly to the comfort of their own time and future generations. Creators of sturdy structures, harnessers of unfathomable forces, exploiters of the gigantic power of nature.
Population expansion has encouraged increased production both in smaller communities and on a global scale. More people need to be comfortable and safe, so more tools and more energy are needed.
Hungarian researchers have uncovered treasures, invisible forces in natural formations, in water, deep in the earth and in tiny atoms. With their ingenuity, they have turned these forces to the benefit of mankind and opened up new eras with their inventions.
Electric power not only illuminated homes and streets, but it also made objects and machines work, so that people could live more comfortably. It solved problems, gave rise to new inventions—and Hungarian scientists turned dazzling ideas into reality. Today, harnessing renewable energy can ensure the safety and comfort of many generations to come. The various problems arising from using the planet’s resources have not gone unanswered either.
Dozens of Hungarian scientists have achieved world-famous results in the fields of energy and industry. Their discoveries have contributed to the achievements of geophysical research, energy transmission, water and wind energy, mining, oil, and natural gas use, and even of the nuclear age.
