In the middle of the energy transition, students will delve into energy generation from renewable and nonrenewable primary sources in France. In this short trip, students will explore in Britany the operations of La Rance plant, the biggest tidal power generator of the world, to understand how tides and other ways of using water as a source could be a feasible solution for clean energy. Wait! Is it clean? In Normandy a visit to the Flamanville nuclear plant, will allow the discussion on zero-emission energy that responds to the massive demand of the general population. Who will we choose? why? and when? We shall witness how energy generation affect the ecological and social conditions of the surroundings.
