We used to talk a lot about gamification and ways to raise awareness. Here is an interesting example. SIEMENS would like to raise awareness and teach people about new forms of energy through a new, fun game called Power Matrix. It’s free, and it’s beautiful even though one thing is missing apparently: it’s all about power generation and nothing about Energy Efficiency.
Starting with a rural territory where your future city is about to develop, the goal is to provide it with a sustainable power supply through a mix of various energy technologies while keeping a budget. The game flows effortlessly through different energy sources and their effects on the community.
You can trade excess energy, buy additional power generated by others, and even build an energy network to fund a energy research department that provides more efficient solutions and new technologies that are lower in emissions. Want to glance it? Have a look at the following video trailer.
We’ll see soon another gamification example more focused on Energy Efficiency.
