reeglereegle Country Profiles are currently pulling renewable resource maps, tools and programs from OpenEI country pages. Additionally, hundreds of definitions from the Openei Glossary have been shared with the reegle Thesaurus.
REEEPREEEP (the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership, and organization behind reegle) means seamless access to important information, less duplication of effort, opportunities for joint ventures, collaboration on cutting-edge development projects, and a partnership that has already resulted in a measured increase in both funding opportunities and the number of visitors to our mutual sites.
Green ButtonGreen Button Apps. The catalog contains apps from contests like the Apps for Energy Challenge as well as apps submitted directly to OpenEI by developers and organizations. OpenEI has also helped with the promotion of the Green Button initiative by providing content such as the participation map to the White House.
CommunityOpenEI's Community pages are a place where users can search for answers and post questions that have not yet been answered. One great example of user engagement was assisting an international user with one of the international datasets hosted on OpenEI for their thesis/dissertation. The user had questions regarding the data format and the best way to work with it. The Community format allowed an OpenEI administrator to provide a detailed answer in a timely fashion for the user.
