EIA launches redesigned International Energy Portal

This week, EIA launched a redesigned International Energy Portal that will provide new and expanded tools and capabilities to examine trends in global energy markets. The International Energy Portal consists of several components: an overview page highlighting key global energy statistics; a data browser that allows interactive access to the full range of EIA's international data in both graphical and table form; an analysis section that links to EIA reports on countries, regions, and special topics; and an application programming interface (API) for users to retrieve international data as it is updated.
