Power Balance is a simple business game for people interested in current issues with electricity supply.
Electricity Distribution Network Operators face many challenging decisions. They must ensure that the supply of electricity to homes and business is secure, affordable and accommodating to new connections.
The equipment that distributes electricity can only support electricity demand that is within its physical capacity. With the increase of electricity consumption, for example from new technology like electric transport and electric heating, this equipment can be put under strain and faults can occur on the network. These faults can lead to power cuts and cause significant disruption for customers.
Now you get to make the decisions. Can you keep the lights on while adapting to the introduction of new technologies? Can you provide customers with an uninterrupted supply of electricity without compromising the budget?
