The U.S. Energy Information Administration’s website supports the EIA’s mission of collecting, analyzing and disseminating information and data on energy sources and production. By doing so the EIA hopes to inform the public about energy production so sound policies might result thereby supporting efficient markets, and the public’s understanding of energy and its interaction with the economy and the environment.
To further those goals, the EIA’S website provides information on the major sources of energy which are listed as petroleum & other liquids; natural gas; electricity; coal; nuclear & uranium; renewable & alternative fuels; as well as consumption & efficiency.
The website also provides information on energy production, an example of which is the data on the production of biodiesel. In 2011, the U.S. 103 biodiesel plants produced 967 million gallons of the fuel from soybean oil, canola oil, and different types of grease, according to the website.
For seeking to provide information and resources to those interested in the many type of energy sources, the EIA website is Government Video’s Website of the Week.
