A new EIA.gov
The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) today launched the first phase of its redesigned website featuring improved content, navigation, and design. All of the information that over 2 million visitors find each month at EIA.gov is still available, along with:
- Today in Energy — a new energy education product published every weekday highlighting current issues, topics, and data trends in short articles written in plain language
- New homepage and improved navigation to make it easier for customers to find the abundance of EIA information and data and better showcase the breadth and depth of EIA content
- Updated logo and dramatic new visual identity to help re-introduce EIA, its initiatives, and its programs
"EIA's new website is the latest in a series of initiatives that improve the agency's capacity to meet the evolving needs of our diverse customers," said EIA Administrator Richard Newell. Other efforts include a new organizational structure that will improve EIA’s ability to innovate our products and processes and the Energy and Financial Markets Initiative which improves understanding and analysis of what drives energy prices.
Will bookmarks change? During the redesign, we will be doing our best to make sure everything is working as it was before and there are no "broken links." Links in bookmarks, in webpages on other sites, and in search engine queries will continue to work. In some cases where we have moved content to new locations, we will automatically redirect users to the new locations.
This is the first major redesign of EIA.gov in six years and the third since its inception in 1995. Comments or questions about the new website are encouraged and can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
