Long story short: Welcome to the new Energy.gov!

This is the next step in our efforts to improve the delivery of energy information and online services and better connect Energy Department data and resources with what’s happening in your backyard.

As Secretary Chu noted, “Our goal is to make Energy.gov easier to use, more transparent and more participatory. This next phase is part of our ongoing commitment to empower consumers and businesses with information, tools and services they need to create jobs, save money and find opportunities in the new energy economy.”

The Energy.gov reform initiative is part of President Obama’s Campaign to Cut Waste, a dedicated effort across the federal government to streamline operations, end unnecessary spending and save taxpayers money. In this latest phase, eleven Departmental program offices moved their websites’ content to the new platform.

This is a work in progress. We’re striving every day to improve the delivery of Energy Department information and services via Energy.gov. And we want to hear from you on how we can make it better. So, take a look around and let us know what you think and what you'd like to see next. 

Oh – and come back often.
