UK Power Networks (UKPN) are building a modern, digitised energy system designed for a low carbon world. To meet the challenge they are making operational data open, available and transparent.
The unveiling is the UK’s first-ever Distribution Network Operator (DNO) Open Data crowdsourcing page, bringing together available asset, network and strategic data for the first time. The three separate ‘scenario worlds’ modelled to 2050 provide regions the most detailed ever picture of decentralisation, digitalisation and decarbonisation.
Having launched the innovation site last year we were asked to integrate this new page into the existing site. Whilst remaining true to the brand we needed to elevate the UI & UX to articulate a cutting edge initiative for the utility industry. Just as the data was to be accessible we needed to ensure the user journey was as accessible and the page open to feedback.
We look forward to the success of this project – and even more data available in the future!
