The EERE Communication Standards and Guidelines now offers guidance on creating Web applications. These types of applications use scripting, databases, or multimedia elements to bring interactivity, customization, and structure to a Web site.

Before adding a Web application to a site, content owners and developers need to consider several factors including branding, navigation, and the final URL, as well as adhering to EERE and 508 standards.

For more information, see the Web Applications and Databases page on the EERE Communications Standards and Guidelines Web site.

Also, at the request of EPA, we have posted a new EnergyStar Logo on the Communication Standards Web site.

This new image should be used in any reference to the Energy Star program as you update your print documents, exhibits, and Web pages.

Thanks for your support of the EERE Web Standards project this year and Happy Holidays!
