About this accelerator

Sankey visualizations can show the energy accounts, material flow accounts on a regional or national level, and cost breakdowns. Sankey visualizations emphasize the major transfers or flows within a system. They help locate the most important contributions to a flow. They often show conserved quantities within defined system boundaries.
