London Olympic Venue Energy Demand

This interactive infographic was made to monitor London’s Olympic stadium’s energy usage over a 24 hour period. The application takes in energy data from the venue, hours of operation, weather data and the time of day to produce a dashboard-like interface. Historical data is also available over many different time periods. A slider allows the user to change the time of day, which also causes a real-time change in the weather, energy reading and sky colour (blue for day, navy blue for night). As well, for days during the Olympics, events can be found on the timeline and can be clicked for more information. The tool was created using a service called Visi (Link), a Raphael-based toolkit produced by EDF Energy in the UK. This is a multi-platform, visually attractive interface for businesses to monitor their energy usage.
