EIA Makes U.S. Energy Mapping System Accessible on All Mobile Devices
The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) has made it possible for the public to use mobile devices and tablets to track power plants, oil refineries, major electric transmission lines and other critical energy infrastructure that are in the path of upcoming storms and significant weather events.
EIA’s interactive Energy Disruptions web page provides real-time data feeds from the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Hurricane Center, including the projected path and intensity of tropical storms and hurricanes, enabling users to evaluate the overlap between storm tracks and more than 40 map layers showing the location of energy infrastructure.
These resources can help emergency response officials and the public assess the potential impacts of significant weather events, such as hurricanes, on energy infrastructure in the United States.
