energywireClimateWire – Mirroring the setup of EnergyWire, ClimateWire provides an array of daily articles discussing climate issues and effects on business, the environment, and society.

climatewireE&E Daily – From federal agency appropriations to comprehensive energy legislation, E&E Daily is the place to track their environmental and energy issues in Congress.


Greenwire – Greenwire, established in the 1990s as one of the first online subscription-based publications, covers a significant spectrum–from electricity industry restructuring to Clean Air Act litigation to public lands management. Although Oil & Gas isn’t a designated an entire section heading as it is in EnergyWire, Greenwire still provides significant coverage on the subject.

GreenwireE&ENews PM – Although lacking in quantity as compared to other E&E Publications, the E&ENews PM is published every afternoon and includes all the breaking and developing policy news from Capitol Hill and around the world.
