About Us - Our World of Energy (OWOE)
OWOE is an interactive website that has been created to provide information to the American public on the subject of energy. It is OWOE's intent to provide an unbiased view of energy, including pros and cons of each source, in order to inform the public on where the energy that drives modern life comes from, why this subject is important, and how technology is changing the industry to address modern problems such as climate change, scarcity of resources, and environmental impact.
This website brings together key information related to each primary form of modern energy from multiple sources in order to present as complete a picture as possible. Written material is high level and tailored to the non-technical audience. Additional information is provided in a variety of formats, including photos and videos from outside sources. Key resources and technical references are provided in case the viewer is interested in digging deeper into any particular topic. In addition, links to resources specially focused on education are provided, and an interactive platform design tool (both oil & gas and wind platforms) is provided that is unique in the energy business.
