Areva Inc Blog Featured Among Top Online Engineering Resources

top_online_resource_electricity_101We are honored to be listed as one of the Top 101 Online Resources in this article (see #25) by ElectricalEngineeringSchools.org, an online resource for college students considering an electrical engineering career. This listing directly ties in with our commitment to workforce development and STEM education (science, technology, engineering, math).

With engineers making up about 40% of AREVA Inc.’s nearly 5,000-strong North America workforce, we are proud to be among these great blogs and sites recognized as “the best websites and online resources for learning about electricity, from the history of electrical technology to the modern industry of power generation, storage, and distribution.”

Our outlook on forward-looking energy led us to launch our Next Energy blog in March 2009 as one of the first nuclear energy corporate blogs. In one of our first blog posts, we set the goal for this new online conversation:

“[We] hope to foster discussions about energy issues and foster discussions about combating climate change, increasing energy security, and improving economic growth. It will also focus on AREVA’s solutions for clean power generation and electricity distribution in North America.”

The Top 101 description of our Next Energy blog indicates we have kept our focus and achieved some success in attaining our goal:

“Areva’s North America Next Energy Blog is an in-depth resource for analyzing some of the upcoming innovations throughout the continent concerning energy. What makes the site so impressive is their wide array of content, including posts on the environment and different implications the energy we use can have on it.”

AREVA’s global clean air energy portfolio of baseload nuclear energy and regional renewable energy sources (solar thermal, offshore wind, hydrogen backup power, and bioenergy) helps utility customers address climate goals with our advanced technologies, and gives us a wide perspective on the world’s climate and energy challenges.

We value our online role in the increasingly active environmentalist blogger community advocating for broad adoption of nuclear energy as the primary means to achieve clean air goals and deliver significantly more energy to meet skyrocketing global demand.

We look forward to your comments on our posts about these important energy issues.
