Electricity Market Game

Welcome to emg.tudelft.nl

The electricity market game was designed in order to help participants better understand the short and long-term dynamics of electricity markets. In the game, several players work together in a power company. Five such companies compete with each other to make the most money by generating and selling electricity. Each round (which represents a year), the companies produce electricity, sell it to a power exchange and decide whether to build new power plants and/or to dismantle old ones. The players need to contend with uncertainties regarding the growth rate of demand, fuel prices, the availability of wind and energy policy changes. Given these real-life circumstances, they experience the difficulties of timing investment decisions and choosing between different types of generation technology in a dynamic environment.
