High Value Data Sets
One way we are trying to encourage collaboration and increase transparency is through the release of high value data sets. This is information that the Department of Energy has amassed over the years that we think could be of great use to the general public.
The Department's Public Data Listing is a machine-readable list of all the publically available datasets maintained by the Department and its program and staff offices.
