WASHINGTON, D.C. – EM entered 2013 with a bold transition to a more user-friendly public website, http://energy.gov/em.
EM launched the redesigned site after an extensive effort to recreate its old EM web pages and provide a modern Internet experience for website visitors. Based on Energy.gov’s fresh innovative appearance and effective functions, the new EM website emphasizes up-to-date information easily accessible to users. For example, visitors at the home page can find information quickly and smoothly with just a few quick clicks.
EM’s offices of External Affairs and Information Technology led the website reform effort, and worked closely with EM program offices to revamp the pages and update information as part of the transition to the new platform.
So far, the Department has transitioned many of its small staff offices to this platform, a move that saved DOE about $1.5 million. Meanwhile, site traffic has increased more than threefold. When complete, the overall website transition will help reduce and avoid costs, saving the Department $10 million annually, and improve the Department’s communications infrastructure.
