Northeastern Energy Flows Exhibition

An exhibition of a research project conducted by Prof. Kristian Kloeckl

Two interactive visualizations reveal how the bustling activity on Northeastern’s campus is fueled by energy consumed by the buildings on campus and help foster increased awareness, understanding and ultimately better decision making for the optimization of energy usage.
“Words and sentences must, by necessity, come only one at a time in linear, logical order. Systems happen all at once […] To discuss them properly, it is necessary somehow to use a language that shares some of the same properties as the phenomena under discussion. Pictures work for this language better than words, because you can see all the parts of a picture at once.” Donella H. Meadows
