ElectroCity, from New Zealand, was developed to increase awareness among students of the basic aspects of such topics as energy generation, the cost of energy, and its environmental impact.
The aim of ElectroCity is to spark an interest in and lay an unbiased foundation for later learning about these important energy industry topics. To this end, ElectroCity set out to make a fun and educational game that gives kids something different to do in class and to share with their parents.
ElectroCity players create and name their own town and work towards a balance of sustainable energy, city growth, and profit. Players have 150 turns to create their city, generate revenue, build power generation, and manage the resulting environmental impact while keeping their citizens happy.
ElectroCity is sponsored by Genesis Energy, a leading generator and retailer of energy in New Zealand.
