The Energy Transition Game is a role-playing simulation that allows players to experience the challenges when transitioning from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources. In this micro-world, where energy is essential to ensure the wellbeing of citizens, you can shape the future of the energy sector. Become an energy producer, energy provider, technology start-up, one of the government departments or civil society organizations and create new solutions for the energy system! Achieving your goals may not be easy. Energy prices, cost of change, energy demand, harsh competition and consumer satisfaction – they can all affect the outcomes of your decisions.

Are you ready to take on the challenges of the energy system transition?

Gameplay

Each player takes a different role within a complex energy system landscape.

Each role is linked with different decisions and responsibilities leaving a space for players to create their own strategies.
