Today, the U.S. Department of Energy released an interactive map displaying thousands of alternative fuel stations around the nation, as part of a complete overhaul of Energy.gov. Color-coded points represent various alternative fuel sources, including electric and hydrogen stations. In addition, the DOE released several other maps, including those that show energy consumption per person, per capita energy costs and the solar energy potential of each state.
“Our goal is to make Energy. gov easier to use, more transparent and more participatory,” said Secretary Chu. “This next phase is part of our ongoing commitment to empower consumers and businesses with information, tools and services they need to create jobs, save money and find opportunities in the new energy economy.”
The maps are created using MapBox and all data is available for download through the DOE.
