ICCI Argonne National Laboratory
Nuclear Energy Resources for Schools includes "Nuclear Energy" experts with supportive classroom materials.
ICCI Illinois Clean Coal Institute
The Illinois Clean Coal Institute (ICCI) was established in December 1982 as the Center for Research on Sulfur in Coal to coordinate a comprehensive coal research and development (R&D) program addressing issues related to sulfur and other noxious elements in Illinois coal. The current name, effective 1992, reflects the need to broaden research efforts to include all aspects of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990, as well as to focus on issues related to clean coal technologies, mining productivity, and mine safety.
ISGS Illinois State Geological Survey
The ISGS is a premier state Geological Survey serving the needs of Illinois with earth science information relevant to the State's environmental quality, economic vitality, and public safety. Some 200 scientists and technical support staff conduct basic and applied research in geology, compile geologic maps, and gather and manage the state's geological data to provide information to industry, governmental agencies and the public about the geology and mineral resources of Illinois.

sequestration Midwest Geological Sequestration Consortium
The Midwest Geological Sequestration Consortium is one of seven national research partnerships working to find a balance between our growing energy needs and rising climate concerns by capturing carbon dioxide created in energy production and storing it safely underground in natural geological formations. The MGSC is funded by the U.S. Department of Energy through the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) via the Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnership Program and by a cost share agreement with the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, Office of Coal Development, through the Illinois Clean Coal Institute.

National Energy Technology Lab
NETL has expertise in coal, natural gas, and oil technologies, contract and project management, analysis of energy systems, and international energy issues.

US Energy Information Administration
The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) collects, analyzes, and disseminates independent and impartial energy information to promote sound policymaking, efficient markets, and public understanding of energy and its interaction with the economy and the environment.

Energy Kids
Information for teachers and students on energy topics.

Kentucky Coal Education
In an effort to educate the public, the contents of this page are directed to students, teachers, employees of the coal industry, and the general public to expand their knowledge of coal and the coal industry. The Coal Education Web Site is a dynamic, growing portrait of one of America's most essential industries. Its purpose is to present factual, useful information about coal in a fun and productive way.

DOE Fossil Energy
Ensuring that we can continue to rely on clean, affordable energy from our traditional fuel resources is the primary mission of DOE's Office of Fossil Energy. Fossil fuels supply 85% of the nation's energy, and we are working on such priority projects as pollution-free coal plants, more productive oil and gas fields, and the continuing readiness of federal emergency oil stockpiles.

Gasification Technologies Council
The Gasification Technologies Council (GTC) promotes a better understanding of the role gasification can play in providing the power, chemical and refining industries with economically competitive and environmentally conscious technology options to produce electricity, fuels and chemicals.
