Understanding energy consumption through an Internet game

Chevron has joined forces with the Economist Group to bring you Energyville, your very own city where you get to manage the energy consumption while keeping your people “prosperous, secure, and living in a clean environment”.

It sounds pretty interesting and reminds me, a bit on the surface at least, of Sim City. It even makes me think of Jane McGonigal’s a World With Out Oil, if only because of the subject matter.

I may suggest that if you are interested in taking up the challenge of Energyville you watch the Story of Stuff first. I think the two might go well hand in hand.
