A 'Shiny' web application for energy industry analytics. Take an overview of the industry, measure Key Performance Indicators, identify changes in the industry over time, and discover new relationships in the data.
eAnalytics is a Shiny web application built on top of R for energy analytics. The app is powered by the excellent plotly, Leaflet, DT, and googleVis packages. To learn more about our project, check out doi.org/10.5334/jors.144.
To install eAnalytics in R:
Or to install the latest developmental version:
To launch the app:
Or to access the app through a browser, visit paulgovan.shinyapps.io/eAnalytics.
eAnalytics is built around the energyr R package of data published by the United States Federal Energy Regulatory Commission www.ferc.gov. energyr contains several datasets for different industry segments:
electric: Electric Company Financial Data
gas: Natural Gas Company Financial Data
hydropower: Hydropower Plant Data
lng: LNG Plant Data
oil: Oil Company Financial Data
pipeline: Natural Gas Pipeline Project Data
storage: Natural Gas Storage Field Data
Launching the app first brings up the Home tab, which is basically a landing page that gives a brief introduction to the app and includes three value boxes for the current number of projects, companies, and facilities in the database.
The Profile tab contains a number of interactive maps with information about facilities for the selected industry. The figure below shows the Profile tab for the Natural Gas Industry.
Multiple options are currently available for customizing the maps. Choose a preferred size or color variable in the movable well panel, select from different basemaps via the lower-right control, and click on a specific facility to view additional information.
The Performance tab tracks a number of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for the selected industry. The following figure shows the Performance tab for the Natural Gas Industry.
The Trends tab contains multiple interactive time-series charts of financial information for the selected industry. The following figure shows the Performance tab for the Electric industry.
The time-series chart in the Trends tab is linked to the data table shown in the Data tab. Searching, filtering, and sorting the data in the data table will automatically update the time-series chart with the selected data.
The Data tab contains interactive datatables of information for the selected industry. The data can be searched, filtered, and sorted as required. The selected data can then be copied to the clipboard, downloaded to a csv or pdf file, or sent to a local printer. The figure below shows the Data tab for the Hydropower industry.
The Explorer tab contains a dynamic motion chart for exploring several indicators over time. The following figure shows the Explorer tab for the Natural Gas Industry.
