Our next game:

27th April 2023

Balance Your Supply and Demand


The aim of the workshop is to run your electricity company in a way that keeps your customers’ lights on, maximises profit and minimises carbon emissions.

You will trade power with other teams over five rounds, simulating both seasonal variations in the system and the longer-term strategic challenge of achieving net zero. This requires you to develop a strategy for growing your portfolio in a competitive market, as well as responding to changing customer demand and policy shifts.

Delivered for hundreds of participants in person over the last ten years, the game is now available as an individual pay-to-play experience or an online workshop with your peers.


Power Trader is perfect for a broad range of audiences. Including individuals from the following organisations:


Energy project and technology developers

Energy consultants

Policy makers or strategists engaged in electricity markets


Masters and PhD students

Research councils

Regulatory organisations

National grid and DNOs

Industry associations

Professional institutions


How does the pay-to-play game work?

The game will take place across two 3 hour sessions. Participant numbers will range from 12 to 30, with teams consisting of 2-3 participants. Expert facilitators will be on hand throughout the workshop to ensure that players of all experience levels remain engaged. Power Trader is designed to be played on a PC or laptop. You will also need to have access to Zoom and a stable internet connection.
