On 9 March, the Energy Academy Europe and EnTranCe took the We Energy Game on another journey, this time to Rotterdam. During the annual All Energy Day the game was played with a diverse group consisting of students from the TU Delft and representatives of Energie Beheer Nederland (EBN). It offered the participants the opportunity to dive into the complex world of sustainable energy and the quest to make a village energy neutral. The game has been developed by PhD candidates of the Centre of Expertise Energy of the Hanze University of Applied Sciences, Groningen.
It provides energy cooperatives and stakeholders a practical insight into the energy possibilities. During the game participants negotiate about the use of renewable energy sources in order to make a town or city energy neutral. In addition, considerations and interests in all areas are included (production, people, planet, profit, space, and regulation). The We Energy Game relates scores to each of these elements. They are based on realistic impacts of each variable. This refers to the (amount of) energy, emissions and impact.
Energy Academy Europe is an international centre of excellence for energy transition focusing on education, research and innovation. EAE was initiated by Hanze University of Applied Sciences and the University of Groningen and is supported by corporate partners from the energy field and governmental parties
