Coal, oil, gas, nuclear, and all types of renewables – the U.S. has more energy options than ever before. Fortunately, we also have better tools for understanding the sources and uses of our energy and for forecasting how our energy supply and needs may evolve in the near future. The U.S. Energy Information Agency collects, analyzes, and disseminates independent energy data, and it has created a set of Web-based tools that can let you harness them for use in industry, policy making, and public awareness.

Join Mark Elbert, EIA's Director of Web Management, for a live webinar exploring the power that energy information can provide.
