Some time ago, Orlando Science Center and a team from UCF’s Florida Interactive Entertainment Academy (FIEA) created a video game called Energize!

Energize! challenges the player to provide electricity to their growing community while keeping emissions minimized. The game, made possible by a grant from the Progress Energy Foundation and with additional support from the Turner Foundation, is now a featured component of the Science Center’s H2Now exhibit, which explores hydrogen power and alternative energy solutions.

During the game, players have five energy producers to choose from: fossil fuel, wind, solar, biomass, and nuclear.  Each form has tradeoffs. The player learns that it takes a combination of energy sources to achieve a balance between energy demand, economic needs and environmental concerns.

In the meantime, here's a great video describing the game:
