It's young. There's growth happening. But reegle.info could be an entree into the world of tracking renewable energy initiatives around the globe, energy efficiency player and even your own carbon footprint.
Developed by the Renewable Enerby & Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP) and the Renewable Energy Policy Network for the 21st Century (REN21), reegle.info is described by its founders as "a user-friendly and comprehensive information portal on clean energy policy, regulation and financing". The site contains a Web search function, an index of key energy experts and resources, and feed from leading environmental and renewable energy news sources.
The coolest feature, however, is the searchable world map that allows the user to search via region or country, key stakeholders and major energy players within a region, news, and sectors (for instance, cogeneration, energy efficiency, etc.). The index has a ways to go before it could be considered "robust" and is not the only resource of its kind out there. But it's a great start to compiling energy information from around the world, listing resources and organizations involved in clean energy, and allowing the user to add tools - such as a carbon footprint counter - that make it more personal.
It's one to keep an eye on!
