RETROFIT, a Game to Learn About Energy Efficient Buildings

Games help players experience options in making buildings greener and more energy efficient.

Find green business solutions
The number one source of greenhouse gas emissions in the United States is . . . buildings.

That’s right, buildings.

Which means our homes, schools, offices, shops, and manufacturing facilities offer tremendous opportunities to save energy, save money, and curb climate change.

“Energy efficiency is not just low-hanging fruit; it is fruit that is lying on the ground,” as Steven Chu, US Secretary of Energy summed it up.

In fact, 38 percent of all carbon emissions in America come from powering our buildings, and according to McKinsey & Company, energy efficiency measures alone can tackle about half the goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions 60 to 90 percent by the year 2050.

How can engineers, architects, landlords, and the like –as well as the general public –be encouraged to address building performance?

Retrofits Game

Leave it to Autodesk to hit upon a fresh approach. The California-based software design firm recently launched an online game, called RETROFITS, to help educate everyone–from industry professionals to teachers, parents and students –about green building issues.

Designed as half quiz show and half fast finger action, REFTROFITS builds awareness about the benefits of green building renovation as players compete for a place on the high points leader board.
