EU Utility Dashboard Screenshot – French language screenshot

Filed under: Dashboard Screenshots — dashboardspy @ 7:22 am

I found this French dashboard screenshot, but all I have is an image and no accompanying context. It looks to be about utilization rates of electricity and gas among EU nations, but I'm not sure of the point of the screen. Can a French-speaking Dashboard Spy please parse this and provide some insight? Thanks.

Update from a Dashboard Spy with a French accent:

"It’s about the theoretical and actual openness of the electricity and gas markets per country in the EU.
in the EU, you are supposed to have the same choice of utility supplier as you are supposed to have on your DSL in the US.
The first column is the theoretical openness of the market – whether a customer can change supplier of their utility.
The second column is the % of large customers who have actually changed. “moins” is “less than”. "

So what or who is The Dashboard Spy? As his about page states, The Dashboard Spy is just a guy interested in the design of enterprise dashboards. He could not find any executive dashboard design source books (or even screenshots of real business dashboards) and so set about creating his own. Finally convinced to post his extensive collection of dashboard screenshots online, he was amazed to find how popular it has become. If you have a nice screenshot of a digital dashboard, balanced scorecard, or any business intelligence graphic to share, please send an email to info _at_ Also check out The Dashboard Spy's favorite books.
