USDA uploads new web page on energy

The Department of Agriculture has launched, but not yet promoted, a new area of its website for energy resources.

According to Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, the new site is designed to be a "one-stop shop for data about energy efficiency and renewable energy programs at USDA," Obama Foodorama reported today.

"The website provides access to all USDA energy resources, including agricultural, forestry, economic, and social data. A set of new web-based tools, including a Renewable Energy Investment Map and an Energy Matrix, focus on USDA’s investments and projects, providing information to a broad spectrum of stakeholders," Vilsack said.
