Understanding the balancing act of electricity production

A topical business game for young and old


Electricity prices, stock market prices, the renewable energy allowance, the merit-order effect…you may be familiar with the terms, but do you understand how they all fit together? Participants in the game become the electricity manager of their own country and have an opportunity to overhaul its energy policy. They can build new power plants, decommission nuclear power plants, adjust the renewable energy allowance, support renewable energy innovations, and much more. In the end the citizens are the judge. No business game combines more complexity and learning.
