Building a Secure and User-Friendly Solar System Dashboard for HKBU
Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) is a leading academic institution that emphasizes research-led learning and innovative teaching. As part of their commitment to sustainability, HKBU sought a software vendor to build a solar system dashboard that would provide real-time monitoring of their solar energy production. This case study highlights how Codeble partnered with HKBU to develop a secure and user-friendly web-based solar system dashboard that meets their design guide and passes their security scan.
HKBU had several requirements that Codeble needed to address in the development of the solar system dashboard. These included:
- Creating a dashboard that displays real-time data on solar energy production from multiple solar panels located across the campus.
- Ensuring the dashboard is user-friendly and easy to navigate for staff, students, and visitors.
- Adhering to HKBU's design guidelines to ensure a cohesive and professional appearance.
- Ensuring the security of the dashboard and its underlying data, as well as passing HKBU's security scan.
Codeble worked closely with HKBU's team to design and develop a web-based solar system dashboard that met their requirements. Some of the key features of the dashboard include:
- Real-time data display: The dashboard displays real-time data on solar energy production from each solar panel, allowing staff, students, and visitors to monitor energy generation and consumption in real-time.
- User-friendly design: The dashboard is easy to navigate and intuitive, with clear visualizations and charts that make it easy for anyone to understand and analyze the data.
- Adherence to design guidelines: The dashboard adheres to HKBU's design guidelines, ensuring a cohesive and professional appearance that aligns with the university's brand.
- Robust security features: The dashboard is hosted on a secure server and uses encryption to protect the underlying data. It also passed HKBU's security scan, ensuring that the dashboard meets the university's strict security requirements.
The solar system dashboard developed by Codeble has been a success for HKBU, providing the university with a reliable, user-friendly, and secure way to monitor solar energy production across their campus. Some of the key results of the project include:
- Increased visibility: The dashboard provides a real-time view of solar energy production, enabling HKBU to monitor energy generation and consumption across campus and identify opportunities for energy conservation and cost savings.
- Improved sustainability: By monitoring solar energy production, HKBU has been able to optimize energy usage and reduce their carbon footprint, contributing to their commitment to sustainability.
- Enhanced user experience: The dashboard is easy to use and provides an intuitive interface that enables staff, students, and visitors to access information on solar energy production at any time.
- Adherence to HKBU's design guidelines: The dashboard's design aligns with HKBU's brand and provides a cohesive appearance that reflects the university's commitment to excellence.
Codeble's partnership with HKBU in the development of their solar system dashboard has been a success, delivering a secure, user-friendly, and effective tool that supports the university's commitment to sustainability. With real-time data display, user-friendly design, adherence to design guidelines, and robust security features, the dashboard has provided HKBU with increased visibility, improved sustainability, enhanced user experience, and adherence to design guidelines. We are proud to have partnered with HKBU in the development of this dashboard and look forward to continuing to support the university in their sustainability initiatives.
