Most Sankey diagrams I find on the web are from Germany, Switzerland or Austria. Anybody in the know, if this due to the visualization type being part of the engineering curriculae in these countries?

Here is one I found on ‘The Wood Power Plant’ blog by Austrian firm Syntec. It is originally taken from a student master thesis on ‘Life Cycle Analysis of Electricity and Heat Generation of a Wood Gasification Plant including District Heating Network’ (German title: ‘Lebenszyklusanalyse der Strom- und Wärmeerzeugung einer Holzvergasungsanlage inklusive Nahwärmenetz’, thanks Google Translate – you are my friend!) by Elena Käppler of University of Applied Sciences Vorarlberg.

While being graphically quite appealing there are some issue with this Sankey diagram. Flows don’t seem to add up correctly: for example the main stream 4.838 MWh and the 401 MWh coming in at the top would be larger than 5.171 MWh.
Also, some flows are not true to scale. Check out the red arrow representing 247 MWh (going down to ‘Verteilungsverluste’) and compare it to the red one going back in a loop, which represents 419 MWh (‘Hackguttrocknung’).

    Make money $$$ playing games at home.Did you know the average annual income for a video game tester is actually $39,063? That’s more than the average USA 2018 personal income of $35,000.And what most unlucky folks have to do to make that sort of money is nowhere near as pleasant as getting paid to sit on your favorite couch playing video games in the comfort of your own home – like you can be doing just a few hours from now.So, if you haven’t yet checked out this amazing opportunity, don’t you think you owe it to yourself and your loved ones?Just think of all those extra luxuries you’ll be able to afford with that sort of extra income.So go here, right now: and see what the fuss is all about.
