This interactive infographic from the Modi Research Group maps out urban energy consumption and allows people to analyze the highly detailed data. It was created for the group’s New York City Energy Mapping Project and represents the total annual building energy consumption at block level and taxlot level, expressed in kilowatt hours (kWh) per square meter of land area.

Data for the infographic was acquired from a mathematical model based on statistics, which estimates the energy consumption values of buildings across the city. If you hover over a block or lot you can view the total use, a breakdown of the type of energy used, what it is used for (space-heating, electricity, space-cooling, hot water, etc) and in what quantity. The infographic shows that blocks in Manhattan have the highest total energy use, while Staten Island seems to have the lowest figures.
