A Sankey diagram is the graphic representation of the flow of energy, materials or money through a system (amount per unit of time). Generally the flows are represented as arrows, whereas the width of the arrow is proportional to the size of the represented flow. They are better than numbers or descriptions at showing which flows provide value and which represent waste and emissions.
We use Sankey diagrams to analyze the material and energy consumption in the company and apply these analyses to represent material and energy balances. Sankey diagrams have proven themselves to be helpful instruments for generating energy and material weak-point analyses, and they serve to clarify reports and presentations.
