New Gateway: Open Energy Info

The US Department of Energy (DOE) launched a new web platform called Open Energy Info [openei.org] on 9 December 2009. The site, built with MediaWiki, is described on the home page as "a platform to connect the world’s energy data. It is a linked open data
platform bringing together energy information to provide improved
analyses, unique visualizations, and real-time access to data." From the DOE press release:

The site currently houses more than 60 clean energy resources and data
sets, including maps of worldwide solar and wind potential, information
on climate zones, and best practices. OpenEI.org also links to the Virtual Information Bridge to Energy (VIBE), which is designed as a data analysis hub that will provide a dynamic portal for better understanding energy data.

Current gateway topics include Clean Energy Economy, Smart Grid, Buildings, and Solar. DOE's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) maintains both Open Energy Info and VIBE.
