New site from the Energy Information Assn (EIA)

The EIA has just launched a new consumer information site called “Energy Explained, Your Guide to Understanding Energy.”  The site provides a wealth of information on energy: consumption and production statistics, energy units and conversion calculators, energy and the environment, and renewable/non-renewable energy sources.  Also provides some information/statistics on international oil production, consumption and reserves.  While the site is aimed at consumers and is written in simple, non-jargon laden language, it is chock-full of useful facts and statistics and also provides links to EIA key titles, such as:

  • Energy Perspectives : “a graphical overview of energy history in the United States…. revealing sweeping trends related to the Nation’s acquisition and use of energy from 1949 through 2008.”
  • Annual Energy Outlook 2009 : “presents projections and analysis of US energy supply, demand, and prices through 2030.”
  • Monthly Energy Review : the EIA’s “primary report of recent energy statistics. Included are total energy production, consumption, and trade; energy prices; overviews of petroleum, natural gas, coal, electricity, nuclear energy, renewable energy, and international petroleum; carbon dioxide emissions; and data unit conversions.”
