State Clean Energy
Transmission Tracker India 

SCETTI (State Clean Electricity Transition Tracker - India) presents state-level data relating to electricity in India with a specific emphasis on uncovering policy opportunities to transition away from coal.

Wow, Scetti sounds interesting, so...

What's the problem?

We've identified a gap where no existing data platform seamlessly combines technical data on electricity/energy transitions with state-level energy policy data in India. Recognising the crucial need for transparent data and immediate policy interventions, we facilitated India's transition from coal to electricity.

Design Process

  • Define & Research
  • Insight & Opportunity
  • Planning & Design
  • Prototyping & Testing
  • Launch & Review

Define & Research

Research Methodology : Part 1
  • Information Collection
  • Reflection
  • Segregation

Information collection : 

Publicly available data was sourced in two variables

  • Policy data

  • Technical data

Reflection :

 

Scetti's resource should showcase publicly available technical

and policy data on energy policies at both the national and state levels.

 

It was not limited to :

  • Renewable energy policies

  • Electricity consumption (per capita and categorised by source)

  • Financial policies

These energy generation laws and action plans

were prepared to create access.

Segregation :

After collecting publicly available technical and policy data

We divided the information into 3 major categories : 

 

Access                      Financial               Environment

Access :

Outcomes of universal electricity access and quality of electricity supply.

Financial :

Financial health and stability of the electricity utilities and electricity system

Environment : 

The environmental quality/impacts of the electricity sector particularly

through energy efficiency measures and promotion of renewable energy

Research Methodology: Part 2

  • Information Sorting
  • Competitors
  • Visual references 

  • Sorting information at state-level data

  • Understanding other platforms : Ember, Climate Policy Radar & Vasudha Foundation 

  • Collecting statistical and visual information

Insights & Opportunity

 

This research phase led us to an interesting insight, 

What if we could create an "Interactive Dashboard" to depict all the information collected!?

Design & Planning

Redefined brief :

We created an "Interactive Comparative Dashboard" tool

Information Archietecture :

The planning for the prototyping stage involved the following :

  • Gathered user data

  • Create customer personas and user stories

  • Add pages, scenarios, and metadata

  • Map user progression with a user flow

  • Add a sitemap and wireframes, and gather feedback

Prototyping & Testing

High-Fidelity Prototyping:

Precision-crafted prototypes with meticulous attention to UI details on Figma, ensuring seamless user interactions across desktop, iPad, and mobile environments for both IOS and Android platforms. Employing user-centric design principles to enhance the overall user experience.

Product Problem Area  (PPA):
  • The conventional approach to gather and present data to policymakers and politicians involved a series of procedural steps.

  • Before, people had to jot down requirements and navigate through static fields for mapping statistical data, taking days

       or even months.

  • This method lacked efficiency and

       caused delays in data processing.

  • States couldn't compare and learn from each other, impacting resource use.

  • The new dashboard simplifies everything, offering a user-friendly interface for straightforward data representation

      and analysis.

Dashboard Design:
  • Intuitive Data Presentation:

    • The website is designed to present intricate data in a visually intuitive manner, ensuring a seamless user interface.

  • State-Level Information Hierarchy:

    • Information is strategically organized at the state level, providing users with a user-friendly interface to access specific details effortlessly.

  • Efficiency Through Dashboard Design:

    • The incorporation of a Dashboard is a strategic UI solution, streamlining processes to save valuable time and manpower.

  • Instant Visual Insights:

    • The Dashboard enables users to gain instant and comprehensive visual insights, optimizing the user interface for efficient decision-making.

Ethnographic study:
  • Politicians and policymakers commonly use WhatsApp, Facebook, and government websites based on our ethnographic study.

At present, there is no existing dashboard design in use; however, our users are actively engaging with government websites as indicated below.

Information to be displayed:
  • India and individual states

  • Research divisions: Access, Finance, and Environment along with their respective sub-divisions

  • Downloadable policy and technical data

  • Statistical graphs and units

4.1 About us.png
User interaction flows used are as follows:
  • Navigation Menu:

A navigation menu allows users to explore different sections or modules within the dashboard.

  • Interactive Widgets:

Interactive widgets display dynamic data, such as charts, graphs, or key performance indicators (KPIs), providing real-time insights.

Filtering and Sorting:

Users can employ filters or sorting options to customize the data displayed and focus on specific aspects of interest.

Data Drilldown:

Clicking on specific widgets or data points allows users to drill down into more detailed information or view related content.

Testing 

Multiple levels of testing were conducted with the Chief Ministers of Maharashtra and Karnataka 

Methods used were as follows:

  • Functional testing

  • Acceptance testing

  • Hybrid testing with non - technical users

  • Usability testing

  • Performance testing

  • Compatibility testing

  • Accessibility testing

Eye tracking test was also in our interest :)
