Project Description

PowerPlay is an app that serves the purpose of Educating people on energy, finding energy problems, people seeking advice and solutions to problems reported on the website, you can also keep track of how much your energy usage it is currently and also how much you are using.

Data Story

We used the data to identify where there are energy needs and an available workforce (unemployed people) to enter the energy factor, we can create work opportunities job. WE also created a comparison between datasets to show users how much energy they use compared to their neighbours, so they can reduce their energy use. We combined our data to create a job description. Post app will be able to capture information from all datasets to track success via statistical analysis.

Evidence of Work



Team DataSets

CSIRO CCAM (nested in GFDLSST GCM) Regional Climate Model dataset for Australia 1971-2095

Description of Use WE used this data set to give us a good understanding of what they think that the climate will be like from 1971 and 2095

Data Set

Data Dictionary for selected datasets in the Labour Market Information Portal (LMIP)

Description of Use This dataset enables us to see the unemployment rate, which we can use to predict what it will be like after we launch our app, PowerPLay, teaching people about energy, it can make people interested in this area or give them the confidant they needed to work in this area.

Data Set

Water: compliance and enforcement - a special report to parliament

Description of Use we used this dataset for a better understanding of how the people send in report to the parliament, so than did cna have a better understanding of what did would need to do, and that fits in perfectly for us, giving us an idea of what we need to do, to give the parliament a report and dataset on some of the survey and poll we have in our app.

Data Set

Employment Projections

Description of Use We used this dataset to give us a better understanding of the current unemployment rate, so we can try and imagine what it will be like after introducing our app PowerPlay and teaching the current unemployed people all about energy, so they can be interested adn be employed in an area like this.

Data Set

Wyndham Solar Energy Production daily

Description of Use The information is used for educational purposes for our app. ie facts and information for people's energy uses in solar energy.

Data Set

Average Electricity Use

Description of Use We used this dataset for researching how much energy people use and how much it is, it will give us a brief understanding of how much people in Australia use energy. We can compare how much they will pay now and when the nuclear energy plant is built.
