The mission of the US Department of Energy Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Program is to reduce petroleum use, greenhouse gas emissions, and air pollution and to contribute to a more diverse and efficient energy infrastructure by enabling the widespread commercialization of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies. The Program Records area contains supporting data for DOE publications, described as Program-related, Analysis, Fuel cells, Production/delivery, Safety codes, and standards and Storage The U.S. DOE Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Program works in partnership with industry, academia, national laboratories, federal and international agencies to:
Overcome technical barriers through research and development of hydrogen production, delivery, and storage technologies, as well as fuel cell technologies for transportation, distributed stationary power, and portable power applications
Address safety concerns and develop model codes and standards
Validate and demonstrate hydrogen and fuel cell technologies in real-world conditions
Educate key stakeholders whose acceptance of these technologies will determine their success in the marketplace.
The publications supported by these records can also be found on the website.
The European Environment Agency provides sound, independent information on the environment for those involved in developing, adopting, implementing and evaluating environmental policy, and also the general public. The site includes interactive data viewers for datasets. There are also visualizations on specific topics such as Progress on Energy Efficiency in Europe, and publications. A major information source for those involved in developing, adopting, implementing and evaluating environmental policy, and also the general public. Currently, the EEA has 33 member countries. The website is available in a wide range of languages. There is a Semantic Data Service, allowing access to datasets using APIs, but datasets can also be downloaded as zip files and INSPIRE-compliant metadata sets. No registration is needed, but on download, some usage feedback is requested.
The Fuel Cell Hydrogen Observatory (FCHO) provides data (statistics, facts and analysis) and up to date information about the entire hydrogen sector. The FCHO focuses on technology and market statistics, socio-economic indicators, policy and regulation, and financial support. Funded by the FCH JU, the observatory is created for the use of policy makers, industry stakeholders and the general public.

The Local Engagement in UK Energy Systems (LEUKES) Database is about local authority energy projects. The data being made available is a database of 458 UK local authority energy projects collated from 29 different data sources. The energy projects database was produced as part of the Local Engagement in UK Energy Systems (LEUKES) project. The database is developed from datasets published by the European Commission, UK and devolved Governments, and their agencies which included information on grants and loans which LAs use for financing energy initiatives and information on operational energy projects.The research aimed to examine the current and future contribution of local governments to changing energy production, supply and use with a primary focus on providing knowledge about the extent of local engagement in energy initiatives under current institutional structures; and, identifying local energy governance and business models being developed. This data formed one component of research in the LEUKES project and was funded by the Research Councils UK Energy Programme as part of the UK Energy Research Centre (UKERC) research programme and the Energy Technologies Institute (the ETI) and was carried out by the University of Edinburgh. https://heatandthecity.org.uk/project/local-engagement-with-uk-energy-systems/

As well as linking to the OECD Data statistics, this includes statistics from other sources such as the IEA, Nuclear Energy Agency and EUROSTAT, indicator information, factbook and yearbook series and other analyses and syntheses. Differs from the OECD Data offering as it draws on more sources and covers a wider range of countries. Acts as a federated search rather than holding its own datasets. However, there are far more books, papers, factbooks and so on accessible from here.

The UK Low Carbon Transition Plan plots how the UK will meet its targets on emissions reduction. Original (archived May 2010) - targetting 34% cut in emissions on 1990 levels by 2020, set out in the 2009 budgetThis publication was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government
First published in December 2011, the Carbon Plan sets out the governments plans for achieving the emissions reductions it committed to in the first 4 carbon budgets. Emissions in the UK must, by law, be cut by at least 80% of 1990 levels by 2050. The UK was first to set its ambition in law and the Plan sets out progress to date and assesses cost-effective next steps. Parts 1, 2 and 3 of the report, and Annex A and Annex B set out the governments strategy and fulfil the legal obligation to report on what the UK is doing to ensure it meets carbon budgets set in law. Annex C sets out, department by department, actions and deadlines for the next 5 years. Quarterly updates on the implementation of the Carbon Plan are available at https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/carbon-plan-quarterly-implementation-updates.
NREL develops data sets, maps, models, and tools for the analysis of energy and energy efficiency technologies. Research areas include bioenergy, buildings, conentrating solar power, energy analysis, grid modernisation, geothermal, hydrogen and fuel cells, integrated energy solutions, transportation and mobility, water and wind. NREL is a national laboratory of the U.S. Department of Energy.
UNSD maintains the Energy Statistics Database, which provides annual statistics on production, trade, transformation and consumption (end-use) for solid, liquid, and gaseous fuels, electricity, and heat. It contains basic statistics for more than 230 countries/territories from 1950 year onwards and is updated annually. The database contains data in their original units (e.g. metric tonnes, GWh) as well as calorific values to allow interfuel comparison in a common energy unit (terajoules).
