The device turns on. ...more »

The Transparent Cost Database Enables Energy Innovation

As energy researchers, the Department of Energy datasets are the foundation of our work. Choosing the most valuable among them is like being asked to choose the most valuable book from a library – the value comes from the library itself, not the single book. Yet, no dataset in recent memory has proved more important than OpenEI.gov’s new Transparent Cost Database (http://en.openei.org/apps/TCDB/). This database displays ...more »
