At KTH we are running a 6 credit MSc course on “Energy System Economics, Modelling and Indicators for Sustainable Energy Development” (MJ2383).
For one of our computer labs, we would like to run an energy trading game. So far, we’ve discovered the Stanford energy market game, which has a website and Python backend. However, the code isn’t available and the website is super slow, not really feasible for our Zoom classroom setting.
We are leaning towards a pen-and-paper approach (over Zoom) with a master spreadsheet/auction clearing system to keep track of the scores.
We’ve about a month to organise this, so looking for ideas from the community. Has anyone else run one of these sessions? Any hints or tips?
