New webpages
24. November 2010

Energy Forum EF has a new website. In addition to the new web address, we created a database of previously presentations that have been presented here at Energy Forum EF. We have also created a small database of energy-related articles. We are focusing on expanding both of these in the near future. All files are in pdf format to make them readable for as many as possible.
