Enhanced Search Tool Makes it Easier to Find Archived Articles

DOE has enhanced the ability to find articles in the archives of the EERE Network News. The newsletter has been produced weekly since 1999, and since 2002 we have entered the articles individually into a database. Our upgraded search engine allows you to search through the archives from 2002 to present to find individual articles by topic. For instance, a search of "Panda Ethanol" will pull up the two articles written about this company, while a search for "Spectrolab" results in six articles. (The issues from 1999 to 2001 are also included in the search engine, but it will pull up the entire issue rather than the specific article.) This new feature will make it much easier to search the newsletter archive to explore the recent history of a topic, a technology, or a company. To use the tool, just enter search items into the search box on the EERE Network News home page or on any of the newsletter's archive pages. Try it out on the newsletter's home page.

Please note that archived articles are presented for information and historical reference only. We do not update the links in the archived editions, so many of them are broken, and in many cases the referenced information is no longer posted on the Web. However, the text preserves a record of the event, a record that we believe is useful for researching trends in energy efficiency and renewable energy. We hope you agree.
