ACORE is a national non-profit organization dedicated to advancing the renewable energy sector through market development, policy changes, and financial innovation. With a savvy staff of experts, fifteen years of experience promoting renewable energy and hundreds of member companies, non-profits, and other organizations from across the spectrum of renewable energy technologies, consumers, and investors, ACORE is uniquely well-positioned to strategically promote the policies and financial structures essential to renewable energy growth.
The American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) is the premier national trade association that represents the interests of America’s wind energy industry - the country’s fastest growing energy sector. Together, with hundreds of our member organizations, we work to help drive wind energy demand and to make it as cost-competitive as possible.
The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA®) is the driving force behind solar energy and is building a strong solar industry to power America through advocacy and education. As the national trade association in the U.S., we represent all organizations that promote, manufacture, install and support the development of solar energy.
Drilling research projects look at a varied range of issues associated with offshore drilling operations, but the primary focus is on the research that relates directly to the regulation of drilling operations. The program seeks out research that helps BOEMRE engineers and supervisors with their day-to-day regulatory responsibilities as well as understand the safety issues associated with deepwater operations and new drilling technology. Research topics include the performance and reliability of safety equipment; new and evolving technology and its application to offshore drilling; assessment of various operational problems; and advanced well control techniques.
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) manages vast stretches of public lands that have the potential to make significant contributions to the Nation’s renewable energy portfolio. This gives the BLM a leading role in fulfilling the Administration’s goals for a new energy economy based on a rapid and responsible move to large-scale production of solar, wind, geothermal, and biomass energy. The BLM also manages Federal onshore oil, gas and coal operations that make significant contributions to the domestic energy supply as the nation transitions to a clean energy future.
The mission of the U.S. Department of Energy is to ensure America’s security and prosperity by addressing its energy, environmental and nuclear challenges through transformative science and technology solutions.
Oil and gas extraction is part of the mining, quarrying, oil and gas extraction sector (NAICS 21). This sector comprises establishments that extract naturally occurring mineral solids, such as coal and ores; liquid minerals, such as crude petroleum; and gases, such as natural gas.
At NREL, we focus on creative answers to today's energy challenges. From breakthroughs in fundamental science to new clean technologies to integrated energy systems that power our lives, NREL researchers are transforming the way the nation and the world use energy.
The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) collects, analyzes, and disseminates independent and impartial energy information to promote sound policymaking, efficient markets, and public understanding of energy and its interaction with the economy and the environment
This atlas estimates wind energy resource for the United States and its territories,(a1). and indicates general areas where a high wind resource may exist. This information is valuable to wind energy developers and potential wind energy users because it allows them to choose a general area of estimated high wind resource for more detailed examination.
The International Atomic Energy Agency is the world's central intergovernmental forum for scientific and technical co-operation in the nuclear field. It works for the safe, secure and peaceful uses of nuclear science and technology, contributing to international peace and security and the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals.
In accordance with its Statute, the mission of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) is to coordinate and unify the petroleum policies of its Member Countries and ensure the stabilization of oil markets in order to secure an efficient, economic and regular supply of petroleum to consumers, a steady income to producers and a fair return on capital for those investing in the petroleum industry.
UNSD collects energy statistics from more than 190 countries and updates and maintains the Energy Statistics Database, which contains energy statistics for the period 1950-2014. The statistics cover production, trade, transformation and final consumption (end-use) for a range of primary and secondary energy products derived from conventional and non-conventional or renewable energy sources.
UNEP is organized into seven divisions and six regional offices, which work across seven thematic priority areas. These are: Climate Change, Resource Efficiency, Disasters and Conflicts, Environmental Governance, Harmful Substances and Hazardous Waste, Ecosystem Management as well as Environment Under Review. The Energy, Climate, and Technology Branch leads one of the key focus areas of UNEP's climate change sub- programme: mitigation through reduction of energy related GHG emissions.
