The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) has standards for its social media, including blogs, Facebook, Flickr, Twitter, Vimeo, and YouTube. If you have questions about social media, contact the EERE Webmaster.

Learn more about DOE’s social media guidance and social media policies.

Blogs

Any office may run a blog. See the blog standards for the requirements and best practices. If you want to reach an existing audience without creating your own blog, you can write a guest post or become a regular contributor for these blogs.

Before beginning to write a blog post, please consult with your office’s communications lead, who will submit your idea for review via the EERE Policy Calendar. You can begin writing the blog post after receiving approval from EERE Communications.

Contact ee.media@ee.doe.gov to post on the EERE Blog.

Facebook

EERE staff are encouraged to submit content for the EERE Facebook account after first coordinating with their office's communications lead, who will work directly with EERE Communications. Your communications lead will send Carolyn Hinkley or Josh Logelin the text of the post, a URL to link to, and a photo.
