We are delighted to announce that this week Energy Post became the proud owner of the great US-based website The Energy Collective.
Like Energy Post, The Energy Collective, founded in 2007 by Robin Fray Carey, is an independent open-access platform that reports on, analyses and debates the important energy issues of today.
The Energy Collective allows anyone who has informed, well-reasoned energy insights to offer, to share them with the world. We believe that in combination, The Energy Collective and Energy Post have the potential to become the top resources in the world for vigorous energy debate and quality analysis.
The Energy Collective was dealt a terrible blow in December with the untimely death of its founder Robin Fray Carey. Under Robin’s inspired leadership, The Energy Collective has grown into an indispensable part of the North American and international energy media landscape. Energy Post will build on this heritage and invest in The Energy Collective to ensure that it will continue to play this role.
Our intention is for the two websites to continue independently of each other, capitalising on their distinct, complementary approaches. Whenever appropriate we will make use of their synergies, including cross-publication of articles, so reaching an even wider audience for what we believe is an important pursuit.
We totally stand by The Energy Collective’s slogan, to be a platform for “The World’s Best Thinkers on Energy and Climate” and will develop The Energy Collective further along these lines.
We hope all our readers, both those of The Energy Collective and Energy Post, will continue to support us by reading and sharing the content available across both sites. And we invite those of you with blogs or articles to register here to take advantage of this far-reaching community and audience.
If you have any ideas, suggestions or questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us. Please note that we are still in the process of migrating the website of The Energy Collective to a new system. We apologize for any technical problems that may occur in the process.
