Welcome to the Energy Smackdown™! The Smackdown is designed to be both fun and effective—even life altering.
The Energy Smackdown™ is organized around two familiar metaphors: a journey and a game. Participants are travelers
on a journey
The have a virtual travel bag
in which they keep a virtual journal
Along their journey,
they collect nuggets
, which are carbon-reduction actions that lead to higher levels of energy efficiency.
Travelers can collect as many nuggets they wish. Some nuggets are mandatory to advance through the four increasingly difficult
of energy conservation.
The Energy Smackdown™ is organized into two broad challenges.
Participants are evaluated based on their percent reduction in per person CO2 emissions as well
as per person carbon footprint. Reductions are measured in five areas:
- heating (home, hot water, plus cooking and dryer if gas)
- travel (car and non-business plane travel)
- consumption of meat
Members of a community or organization work together to expand their impact. Points are
awarded based on the total nuggets the team members have collected. As part of the Team Challenge, special challenge events
organized to highlight key issues related to energy consumption and to increase awareness in the community. Points earned in
challenge events are added to the team score.
