WASHINGTON - The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) has launched a new Web portal to provide state energy information.

According to the DOE, the new Web site, called "EERE State Activities & Partnerships," organizes links to hundreds of state-specific Web pages published by EERE and its technology development programs. The site includes such information as:

  • EERE-sponsored projects in the states;

  • EERE's cooperative projects and grants to the states;

  • Breaking news about state involvement in energy projects;

  • State energy statistics;

  • State maps of renewable energy resources; and

  • Case studies and state publications.

    The portal also provides links to state energy office, state weatherization, and DOE regional office contacts.
