Seattle Clean Energy

Network mapping


Seattle’s Office of Economic Development saw a problem of silos in Seattle’s clean energy ecosystem. This map was an exploration of systems and network mapping as a solution. 

What is it?

This map is a data visualization tool which aims to:

  • Support local clean energy entrepreneurship
  • Visualize relationships between clean energy resource providers (e.g., funding, policies, accelerators)
  • Collaboratively share clean energy stories of initiatives, programs, and organizations
How does it work?

This Kumu map is populated by a survey which was co-designed with organizations using the map.
