NREL to offer data feeds for mobile, web apps

November 1, 2011 |

In Washington, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory has launched its developer.nrel.gov website which provides data feeds that computer programmers can access for use in their own mobile and Web applications.

The first data set to be offered is a comprehensive, nationwide list of alternative vehicle fueling station locations, including those that supply electricity, biodiesel, ethanol, or natural gas. Developers can tailor data to their own needs, as well as create mashups that combine data from website with data from other sources. Developers can retrieve the data through a Web services API (application programming interface).

In the near future, developer.nrel.gov will feature a data set of all federal and state laws and incentives related to alternative fuel vehicles and electric vehicles. Within the next few months, developers will be able to access data related to wind and solar energy.
