WONDR are the proud winner of Best Data Visualisation at the Irish Design Institute (IDI) Awards 2023.

The winning award was for our collaboration with ESB (Electricity Supply Board) on their Real-Time Visualisation (RTV) application.

This was a unique and special data visualisation project, built with Microsoft technology, that provides complex power generation data from every power station in Ireland (including renewables) to act as a single source of truth.

The RTV app enables the ESB to understand where they are generating the most carbon across their portfolio and where their focus should be in future planning, forecasting, and delivering on KPI to achieve their Net Zero 2040 strategy.

"The clarity, streamlining and presentation of complex data from multiple sources in simple yet informative visualisations allows for a friendly and quick read."
