The Virtual Energy Hero is a VR game with the aim of bringing the topics of the energy strategy closer to the population in a playful and interactive way. Together with Oscar, the owl, you fly over Winterthur, solve tricky questions on various energy topics (i.e. renewable energies, mobility or energy efficiency), and apply what you have learned in a virtual single-family house.

Joining virtual reality technology with gamification techniques to create new learning and development experiences in a more interactive and enjoyable way: encouraging people to engage with energy issues and take action.
The prototype, as it is now, is a unique eye-catcher and can be used at fairs and ZHAW events. Further development is already being planned.
