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 providing up-to-date information on energy production and consumption - through 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.
