Working with Sustainable Energy students from Exeter University, we were challenged to produce information graphics to aid understanding of their findings from research into the Barrage. These would be presented at a conference in Exeter. We worked on a timeline of the history of the barrage, putting into context how long the debate has been going on.
We also placed relevant information on the graphs to show the importance of the barrage. To emphasize the power generating potential, we plotted a history of non-renewable energy on the outside of the circle, with renewable energy placed on top, finally including the energy the barrage would produce on top of that. We offset this by placing the CO2 emissions produced on the inside of the circle to show the growing need for renewable energy sources.
