The Independent Market Operator (IMO), an industry-funded organisation, operates Western Australia's Wholesale Electricity Market (WEM). Their mission is to develop a competitive electricity marketplace – encouraging private sector investment, improved energy security and efficient pricing. WEM underpins the supply of energy to the majority of WA’s population (around 2 million people).
The IMO wanted to provide greater transparency within the electricity marketplace. They saw an opportunity to provide up-to-date information on energy production and consumption - by taking advantage of the rich set of market data they hold.
Partnering with ThoughtWorks, the IMO explored new approaches to communicate with their stakeholders using data visualisation and interactive infographics.
