Currently all the content on Conduit comes from you and other community members. It's a user-generated world. And I think that is good. It's authentic, social, relevant and real-time. But it may not be comprehensive. And that is where I think we can do better. I believe that in 2012 Conduit will become a true one-stop-shop for all your Energy Efficiency news needs. But in order to get there, I need your help.

Where do you go to get your energy efficiency news currently? And in general, what sort of news and other relevant content would you want to see on Conduit? This page is your wish list so put your thoughts in a comment below.

My top two sources of energy related news are Clearing Up and Joel Meyer's Energy News Digest blog.

Me too, and I also have a long list of energy-related twitter accounts I follow.

I also receive the daily Environmental Leader to scan national clean energy headlines.

I'm a big fan of the aggregators - use meltwater's twice daily recaps, and some of the trade e-newsletters. I think the current mix of news on Conduit is pretty fresh/varied, actually. But, would love to see a blog  - would be great is Conduit became the Grist of EE news...

Beyond the wealth of internal resources I am active on several LinkedIn discussion groups typically using the weekly summary approach

In addition to the internal resources like EE news I get material from RMI, NACFAM Sustainability,

The New York Times is another good source.  EE articles are not frequent, but when they appear they are generally excellent.  Both Paul Klugman and Tom Freidman also tie EE into their opinion pieces in ways that make larger connections.  I like to access from the NY Times app.

I guess my main resource is something like Veronica refers to as a news aggregator; that would be WSU Energy Extension Office's weekly newsbriefs:    http://www.energy.wsu.edu/EnergyLibrary/Newsbriefs.aspx#Energy
(Hope that link works or that Ben fixes it).

I receive several email digests including several mentioned above. One I haven't seen mentioned yet is from the Alliance to Save Energy:

In addition to some of the resources listed above, I find the publications from Energy Central (EnergyBiz and Intelligent Utility) are a good way to get a pulse on what utilities are doing around the country. The two publications seem to be directed at executives but the articles are still valuable.

Excellent ideas everyone. I've added all these sources to my list. I'm going to go back to our development team and see how we might pull all of these into one comprehensive feed. Will keep you updated.

If you come across additional news sources you'd like me to add, please continue to post them as a comment here.
