Electricity Usage Generated by Fossil Fuel


About this Data Set

With this dataset you are able to see hourly data of a province’s electricity output, you can view the different fuel types and how much each type is contributing to the output and the total output for that province. You can view data from 2015 all the way to the present year.

Project Description:

The green energy forecast project will allow users to see the predicted electricity usage for that month, and users will be able to iterate through the time periods of that month. Based on the data of that month and time the micro bit will move the servo pointer to the percentage of electricity currently generated by fossil fuels in your province at that month and point in time.

All of the time-based variables will be displayed on the micro-bit 25 LEDs. Button A will change the months starting from Jan/Feb/Mar and ending at the months of Nov/Dec. Button B will change the moment in time starting from 7am-9am, and ending at 3am-5am

A scale will be used to display the predicted electricity currently generated by fossil fuels starting from 0%
