Energy usage dashboards for teaching physics?

 I just learned about three pretty cool dashboard webpages for showing students energy production / consumption which might be useful for discussing how electrical energy usage is related to climate change. 

The first one covers a large part of the globe: https://app.electricitymaps.com/map

The next two are specific to the United Kingdom: https://renewables-map.robinhawkes.com/#5.97/54.23/-3.617 and https://grid.iamkate.com/

I'd love to know about other options and if anything like the last two exist for North America or the U.S. Let me know if you've seen anything like these that I should be aware of!
