  • The U.S. Department of Energy Collegiate Wind Competition prepares students from multiple disciplines to enter tomorrow’s wind energy workforce. As part of the competition, undergraduate students build and test a wind turbine, establish a deployment strategy, and develop and deliver a business plan.
  • The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today released a new report that highlights the accelerated deployment of five clean energy technologies: wind turbines, solar technologies for both utility-scale and distributed photovoltaic (PV), electric vehicles (EVs) and light-emitting diodes (LEDs). The report, Revolution…Now, was announced by Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz during a discussion at The Atlantic’s Washington Ideas Forum.
  • This video breaks down the numbers and impact of the Energy Department’s Weatherization Assistance Program.
  • The United States has one of the largest electric vehicle fleets in the world. This video breaks down all the numbers on EVs.
  • Energy by the Numbers presents fuel cell electric vehicles. Fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) debuted in the U.S. in 2015. Three models are available in the United States. FCEVs run on hydrogen and only emit H2O.
