The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) maintains a unified online identity by requiring its websites to be in the Drupal environment and use common EERE navigation. Some partnership websites have their own look and feel.

Please note that all EERE websites—even partnership websites—must meet the requirements for federally funded websites, such as the accessibility requirements in Section 508.

If you have questions about the current or former web templates, contact the EERE Template Coordinator. Template

EERE websites should be hosted in the Drupal environment. These websites use's standard Drupal template.

Application Template

Any web application hosted outside of the Content Management System that is branded to EERE must use EERE's application template. Applications should follow the application style guide.

Template Exceptions

Websites may be approved to be hosted outside of when EERE is contributing funds to an activity, but is not the primary sponsor and doesn't have primary editorial control over the website. These are considered partnership websites. The Web Governance Team (WGT) must pre-approve partnership websites. Read about the requirements for partnership websites.

The WGT must approve any other requests for websites that will not use the template.
