EIA widget embeds energy data

EIA widget embeds energy data

The Energy Information Administration has a new widget that allow users to embed interactive visualizations of energy data into their websites.

Drawing on the EIA's application programming interfaces, the widget can display current monthly and quarterly data on coal, petroleum, natural gas and other energy sources with maps, line charts, pie charts and bar graphs.

The widget would allow a site visitor to find out how a state's electricity is generated and compare that information to historical data or to other states. It could also show how U.S. petroleum output compares with that of other nations.

As part of the agency's efforts to share more of its energy data in easily updated, customizable ways, the widget aims to help EIA customers, policy makers and journalists who work in the energy industry keep up with the latest trends, the agency said.
