New searchable map of the green energy world

Revamped www.reegle.info goes online on April 27th

Vienna, 27 April 2009

A searchable global map forms the new heart of www.reegle.info, the specialist search engine for renewable energy and energy efficiency. Users can click on a specific location and get the latest events, news, and a sampling of green energy development projects in that area. There is also a catalogue of stakeholders and an energy-oriented profile of the relevant country, including up-to-date statistics and information on local green energy policies and regulations.

A news feed integrating stories from ten of the leading environmental, energy efficiency and renewable energy news sites makes reegle the logical first stop for anyone needing a quick overview of the latest green energy developments.

In addition to the news feed and map search function, a web search function and a compiled catalogue of key actors make the website the most comprehensive public information resource for renewable and energy efficiency available online. There is also a glossary of green terms from additionality to wind turbine, putting the jargon-rich field into plain language. A range of widgets enables users to track their own carbon footprint or link the reegle search function to their own website.

"The new reegle website is unique in the way it takes the flood of information and news that is available on green energy, categorises it and makes it so accessible", says Florian Bauer, the site's Product Manager. "We're also placing a strong emphasis on quality of information, instead of leaving users to sift through to find the nuggets themselves. Experts can quickly find exactly the information they need, and newcomers get a good overview."

reegle is a public online resource provided by REEEP (Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership) and REN21 (Renewable Energy Policy Network for the 21st Century), funded by the British Department of the Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA), the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU), the Dutch Ministry of Housing, Spatial Planning and the Environment (MINVROM) and the Austrian Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management (BMLFUW).
