How the simulation works

This is the graph area. The graph you select by clicking on the mini-charts below will appear here.

On the right is a measure of your cumulative power generation over time. If power demand and generation are in balance, then % Power Surplus will be 0, if it's negative, there is not enough power to meet demand.
The decisions area allows you to vary the key inputs to the simulation. These are what control the outputs. Try to meet the power demand while minimizing the costs, water usage, NOx emissions and carbon dioxide.

Power Generation Decisions

Demand Decisions

* Change power generation to affect environmental indicators and cost.

* Change efficiency rates, population growth, housing, and industrial growth to affect power demand.
