Abstract: This paper presents EnergyFlowVis, an interactive webbased Sankey diagram generator for energy data. The tool is aimed at researchers and energy managers to visualize energy flows on the University of British Columbia (UBC) campus. This tool will allow the users to manipulate the Sankey diagram in real-time to filter by building type, dates or individual buildings. The application works at two levels where it gives an overview of the consumption at the campus level and details on the individual building's end-uses. The user can use the individual building view to compare the actual data to simulation data.
Keywords: Visualization, Analytics, Energy flows, Real-time data.
