This project could not have been conducted without the assistance of a large number of people and support of several organizations who are gratefully acknowledged. This website is a joint project of Virginia Center for Coal and Energy Research (VCCER) and Virginia Department of Mines, Minerals and Energy (Virginia DMME). Development of this web site was supported, in part, by a U.S. Department of Energy (US DOE) grant award through (Virginia DMME).
This project could not have been conducted without the assistance of a large number of people, who are gratefully acknowledged. The Virginia DMME (Steve Waltz) coordinated and also provided essential data and review comments. Other state agencies were also helpful in providing data: The State Corporation Commission (SCC) (Tim Faherly, Barbara Hayek, Rosemary); and Virginia Employment Commission (VEC) (Ron Montgomery).
A report of this kind could not have been done without the data provided by the US Energy Information Administration (EIA) (Kenneth McLevy, Frank, staff at National Energy Information Center).
At the VCCER, internal review was provided by Carl Zipper and Ian Loomis. Graduate Research Assistant, Deepak Deshpande helped with data collection, formatting and webpage design. Scott Rose, an undergraduate student, prepared the maps for this website.
The concept of this web site has evolved from "Virginia Energy Patterns and Trends: 1960 to 1990," a 1991 VCCER paper publication.
