Navy invites civic, academic, military online participants for three-day alternative energy wargame, based on 2022 scenario

May 21, 2012 |

In Washington, the Navy’s Energy and Environmental Readiness Division and Office of Naval Research are inviting civic and military collaboration in energyMMOWGLI (Massive Multiplayer Online Wargame Leveraging the Internet).  The game will build on efforts to improve the U.S. Navy’s combat capability and energy security, particularly by promoting energy efficiency and diversifying its energy supply (use of alternative energy), which will ultimately reduce reliance on fossil fuels from overseas.

Scheduled to run for three days starting this Tuesday, May 22, energyMMOWGLI will immerse players in a future energy scenario from the year 2022 and will ask them to generate ideas around how to reduce energy consumption, improve energy efficiency, and diversify its energy supply for the sake of future strategic readiness.

Inviting broad-based participation—both civilian and military—is part of the strategy for a more secure energy footing in the context of a more uncertain energy future.  “We’re hoping for an extremely diverse set of players including talented thoughtful players from academia, industry, military, government, NGOs, and global citizens,” said Goudreau.

The game invites players to bring everything they know about energy—from strategies they use at home to their workplace conversations, from their professional knowledge to their wildest imaginings.
