Greenpeace UK have launched an online virtual town called EfficienCity. It’s powered by clean and efficient (“decentralised”) energy. Based on actual communities in the UK, it aims to show that nuclear and coal powered power stations are not required.
It also aims to show how local councils, businesses and people are able to play a part in making the leap to a more sustainable future. The town is very interactive, with video case studies, animations and slideshows that explain how a clean and efficient energy system works. The tidal power animation was particularly interesting. Take a look at the Efficiencity, and you can read more about it here.
