Energy Balance: Sample bar graph generated by TOE Balance for Iraq and Jordan

Bar graph generated by TOE Balance

Core development of TOE Balance will continue through mid- to late 2015, with a multitude of enhancements and new features in the pipeline; ranging from basic to complex. Throughout this period, all comments, thoughts, questions, and suggestions will be highly constructive and much appreciated.

1. Conceptual

  1. Approximately 300 additional standard, pre-defined simple and complex indicators and benchmarks
  2. Introduction of a set of pre-defined as well as dynamic, user-defined energy-efficiency indicators (EE indicators). Most indicators will typically be based upon contry-specific socio-economic, environmental, demographic, and geological information alognside with energy balance data.
  3. Intelligent gap-filling of missing and/or questionable energy balance values based on linear and/or higher-order models (see "4. Interface" below)
  4. Licensing of automatic, online energy balance data feeds from major sources such as IEA, Eurostat, as well as national and international authorities, statistics, and energy research institutions around the world
  5. Advanced forecasting and scenario-making based on arbitrary trending
  6. Advanced forecasting and scenario-making based on linear and/or non-linear modeling of historical data
  7. Full IEA energy balance compliance on detailed and aggregate energy-balance line items (also denoted as "indicators" on some resources such as Eurostat)
  8. Advanced user grouping and clustering for team and discussion-group collaboration

2. Graphical Presentation

  • Enhanced graphic presentation of energy balances as well as linear and higher-order indicators

    Sample Sankey Diagram (http://www.scotland.gov.uk)

  • Dynamic Sankey Diagram presentation of total and/or partial data sets
  • Enhanced graphic presentation of data sets including overlays, etc.
  • Multi-Modal Graphic Presentation: Alongside native graphic rendering module, TOEBalance will also be offering one or more third-party options. Offering additional functionality and fetures, this enhancement will boost the Application's presentation capability.

3. Functionality

  • Developing a "dynamic indicator editor"; an online tool for building user-defined indicators and benchmarks
  • In-situ editing of energy balance data by means of an intelligent, online editor, which will operate either in passive mode, where the user will provide balance data values directly, or in smart mode, which interactively comprises relevant functionality described under "Conceptual" above such as gap-filling, etc.

4. Interface

Implementing multi-lingual interface by adding languages such as Arabic, Deuche, French, and Spanish
