How is energy generated? How much does it cost? How does it affect the environment?
These are extremely important topics today, and are no longer just the domain of engineers and industry experts.
ElectroCity was developed to increase public awareness – particularly among students – of the basic “common knowledge” of these topics. That is, the general terms and concepts of the industry and the dilemmas that go along with them.
Our goal is not to provide students with a sophisticated understanding of the controversies in the various energy debates. Rather, our goal is to spark an interest and lay an unbiased foundation for later learning.
We set out to make a game that was fun and educational. A game that gave kids something different to do in class and share with their parents.
EnerCities is an educational game about energy, co-funded by the European Commission. The game is about energy sources and the balance between people, planet and profit. Can you create a metropolis that stands the test of time?
“You are about to play an interactive game that puts you in charge of meeting the energy demands of a city. Assumptions for the game, both present and future, are based on The Economomist Intelligence Unit’s assessment of global facts and trends obtained from numerous credible sources.”
