The U. S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) maintains a Web portal that talks about energy topics in plain language. “Energy Explained” includes topics such as where gasoline comes from, what determines the price of electricity, how much renewable energy the United States uses and much more. The site allows easy navigation among six major energy topics: what is energy, use of energy, energy and the environment, nonrenewable energy sources, renewable sources and secondary energy sources. Visit the site today at www.eia.doe.gov/energyexplained and learn more about something that touches us in many ways every day.
