U.S. Oil Policy Simulation

Postby "Michael Bean" » Mon Dec 16, 2002 12:03 pm

We have just released the U.S. Oil Policy Simulation-- a free, public web simulation which examines what it would take to reduce U.S. dependence on foreign oil. You can try the simulation at: http://broadcast.forio.com/pro/oil The simulation is a cross between an analysis tool and a game. That is, the simulation is set-up as a game, but its really a simple policy analysis tool. The simulation attempts to provide a nonpartisan analysis that allows citizens to better understand how the U.S. produces and consumes oil. Data used in the simulation was largely gathered from the Energy Information Administration, a branch of the U.S. Department of Energy. Players can tailor a wide range of Liberal and Conservative initiatives including opening part of the Artic National Wildlife Refuge for oil development or mandating the sale of electric vehicles from car manufacturers. The model used for the simulation can be downloaded at: http://broadcast.forio.com/pro/oil eviewdata.htm We would appreciate any insights from our colleagues in the SD community on the simulation. Best regards, Michael _______________________________________ Forio Business Simulations Michael Bean mbean@forio.com www.forio.com
