API Movers and Shakers: Your Weekly API Performance Report

Once again, U.S. Government APIs are not doing so well. FEMA in the US Government Collection was in the Red Zone with a CASC score of 5.72. This was primarily due to an outage on the 7th of March, which saw the requests to most endpoints timeout. There was also a scattering of failures throughout […]

Weekly API Performance Report: Movers and Shakers

Here are our highlights for the week in APIs. We tell you who’s up, who’s down, and who dropped out completely. Are the APIs you depend on included? If not, let us know and we’ll add them to our collection. And if you still haven’t signed up for a demo, what are you waiting for? […]

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is a government agency responsible for advancing the nation’s energy security, promoting scientific and technological innovation, and ensuring the safety of the country’s nuclear weapons. It was established on August 4, 1977, under President Jimmy Carter’s administration. The department was created to address the nation’s growing energy crisis and to promote energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies.

Over the years, the Department of Energy has evolved to meet the changing needs of the U.S. energy landscape. Today, the department is responsible for a wide range of energy-related issues, including nuclear security, environmental stewardship, and scientific research.

The Department of Energy has made news several times over the years. For example, in 2015, the department announced new energy efficiency standards for commercial air conditioners and other cooling equipment. In 2019, the department announced a plan to build a new nuclear reactor to support the development of advanced nuclear technologies.

In terms of infrastructure, the Department of Energy operates a number of research facilities and national laboratories to support its scientific and technological work. The department also maintains a range of IT systems and networks to support its various programs and initiatives.

Like many government agencies, the Department of Energy has had some significant downtime incidents over the years. For example, in 2013, the department’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory experienced a network outage that lasted for several days, disrupting research activities and other operations.

The Department of Energy takes security very seriously and has implemented a range of protocols and technologies to protect its IT systems and data. However, like many organizations, the department has experienced security breaches over the years. For example, in 2013, the department’s website was hacked by a group claiming to be affiliated with the Anonymous hacking collective.

In terms of APIs, the Department of Energy operates several APIs that provide access to a range of energy-related data. Some of the key APIs include:

Energy Information Administration (EIA) API – provides access to data on U.S. energy production, consumption, and prices, as well as international energy data.

National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) API – provides access to data on renewable energy technologies and deployment, including wind, solar, and geothermal energy.

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) API – provides access to data on building energy efficiency and other energy-related topics.

The performance of these APIs can vary depending on the amount of data being requested and other factors. However, the Department of Energy has invested in infrastructure and technology to ensure that its APIs are reliable and responsive.
