Went to THREE islands which focus on ENERGY

Welcome to the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Island on Second Life! Your outlet for DOE related information, media, and interactivity.  Feel free to explore and become a subatomic particle!

This is the lobby. Here, we have links to their YouTube Vid, Job applications for DOE, main website, info about energy stuff by DOE.

This is a snapshot of DOE overall. Cool layout! You can see the TWO of the five energy:water, wind, solar, earth, fire

That is a thing which brings you around the island. Along the way, there are explanation of the items and their significance towards environment.

Final stop. Back to the building.

Verdict:Not bad. Quite informative. It will be good to have someone there on duty to explain a little bit more cause the info provided may not be sufficient. Very organised! Hope to see more items used for energy conservation.

Another energy area: Energy Green Island

Learn about new green energy technologies at Energy Green Island. There are fun activities and lessons for each of the five alternative energy sources — water, solar, geothermal, biomass, and wind.
