A lot goes into developing an application. In order to make that process as easy for possible for everyone who works on the EERE Web site, we've updated the Web Application Standards. Because applications are designed and developed in a very different way than most other things on EERE, this page walks you through the entire process from receiving the initial approval to ensuring that it meets EERE standards.

If you're planning to develop an application for your site, it's important to familiarize yourself with all of EERE's standards beforehand. If you work these standards into your application development plan and plan to meet them from the start, you'll be well on your way to building a standards-compliant application.

If you have any thoughts or suggestions about these new standards, please feel free to leave a comment!
