Energy Maps

May 29, 2011

* Mapcruzin has several maps of US nuclear generation facilities and historic seismic activity.

* Baker Hughes has an interactive rig count for North America. It includes oil, gas, and geothermal well rig deployment for the entire industry. Rig count is up appreciably year-over-year, primarily because of oil drilling. Natural gas drilling is down.

* The US roofing association has the ASHRAE 90.1 2007 climate zone map in color. The one that ASHRAE publish in the print version of 90.1 2010 is nearly illegible.
