New Energy Web Portal Explains Topics in Plain LanguageEnergy Explained, a new web portal launched today by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), celebrates Energy Awareness Month with the most comprehensive energy education resource available from the U.S. Government.
The site explains where gasoline comes from, what determines the price of electricity, how much renewable energy the United States uses, and hundreds of other energy topics.
"Energy touches us in many ways every day, from the electricity that lights our homes to the fuel we use in our cars," said EIA Administrator Richard Newell. "Energy Explained uses plain language and clear graphics to help explain a sometimes complex, but vital subject."
Energy Explained allows easy navigation between major energy topics:
* What Is Energy?
* Use of Energy
* Energy and the Environment
* Nonrenewable Energy Sources
* Renewable Energy Sources
* Secondary Energy Sources
Energy Explained includes a "rate this page" feature so visitors can easily give EIA feedback on any page.
