Building Confidence Project supported by Environmental Defense Fund
To consider the role data-graphics could play in reaching wider audiences for a database of energy efficiency projects.
Short animated volumetric visualisation and image set summarising the carbon dioxide savings from energy efficiency projects.
The Building Confidence Project emerged from an energy 'data-jam' at the Google offices in New York to which Carbon Visuals was invited. It was organised by the White House to generate new approaches to energy efficiency.
The project idea, facilitated by Honest Buildings, was to create a database of energy efficiency projects that can inspire and facilitate similar initiatives elsewhere. Carbon Visuals' role was to consider the role data-graphics could play in reaching wider audiences.
The short visualisation summarises the carbon dioxide savings from a number of energy efficiency projects (mostly lighting retrofits). The blue volume is the actual volume of carbon dioxide emitted by the building. The dashed volume is the volume of gas NOT emitted - the saving compared to the year before the retrofit. The red line is the predicted saving.
This project was supported by Environmental Defense Fund. The data was provided by New York City.
