Assume the character role of one of the representative described above. Name your character and describe the background of your character. Research the positions of your character's particular entity, industry, or activist group. As a member of a particular constituency (put yourself in character), write a plan for the energy production and consumption by Liechtenstein over the next 50 years.
Give a breakdown of the energy resources (e.g., oil, gas, wind, nuclear, solar) used, the energy produced, and the consumption by the country. Include mass transit and conservation as a resource resulting in a savings in energy.
In a spreadsheet, list the resources in the left column, the energy production amounts (kilowatt-hours or joules) in the next column to the right, the energy consumption (kilowatt-hours or joules) amounts in the next column to the right and the cost (Swiss francs, dollars or Euros) in the final column to the right. Total the columns.
In the text part of your plan, describe in an introduction the current state of energy in Liechtenstein. Then go on to describe your energy plan for the future and how it will operate. Give a rationale for why you chose this plan. Give a convincing argument why your plan is sensible for the country of Liechtenstein. Use at least six references, three from the Internet and three from the library. Cite all facts in your plan. The references and citations should follow either APA or MLA format. The plan should include at a minimum: one page for the cover sheet, three pages of text, double-spaced, and one page of spreadsheet. The role-playing assignment is worth 75 points.
