Online game Power Matrix aims to educate people about power sources and how the energy market works.
Siemens Energy has come up with a Simcity-like online game called Power Matrix where players are tasked with creating and regulating the energy grid of a virtual city.
The object of the game is to turn a rural region into an urban center with a stable and sustainable energy grid. Players must use a mix of traditional and renewable energy sources like wind and solar power to create an energy grid that can generate large amounts of energy at a low level of resource utilization. The player who generates the largest amount of energy at the lowest resource utilization wins the game.
