This new animation function is a new addition to the searchable map at the heart of www.reegle.info. With this map, users can click on a specific country 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, and information on local green energy policies and regulations.
“This new animation tool really helps make European renewable energy and energy efficiency trends much more accessible”, says Florian Bauer, the site’s Product Manager. “Over time, we will be looking to expand the geographic range of the animation feature, and also will look at bringing in renewable resource potential. It’s an exciting way to help change perceptions visually.”
The reegle website also has a news feed integrating stories from ten of the leading environmental, energy efficiency and renewable energy news sites, which makes reegle the logical first stop for anyone needing a quick overview of the latest green energy developments. Taken together, the news feed, the animation, the 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 clean energy blog that offers thoughtful opinions on the latest developments in renewable energy and energy efficiency.
