Clean Energy Goals

During the data visualisation week, the team learned how to source publicly available data sets, and then clean, reformat and analyze the data to pull out the points of interest. Finally, they learned how to design visualizations based on this analysis in HTML, CSS and Javascript.

The topic to investigate was energy. The team studied the world’s five biggest countries (by population) to see which resources make up their electricity consumption, and how this has shifted over time. At the beginning of the decade, each of these countries had made ambitious clean energy goals for their future. This project seeks to visually show if the countries have achieved their goals, or at least started shifting towards cleaner resources.

The information was sourced from the UN database.
