Saxum tackles complex energy landscape with U.S. of Energy 2.0 data visualization

The project highlights resources across the country, along with a look at infrastructure, policies and markets that make consumption possible.

OKLAHOMA CITY, Sept. 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Saxum, an integrated marketing communications agency, recently released The United States of Energy 2.0, a comprehensive data visualization project that explores the energy profile of regions and states in terms of infrastructure, resources and market.

Energy is complicated. The goal of the U.S. of Energy is to help you understand energy realities in America. We stayed away from politics and playing favorites with any individual resource. Everything is based on facts. Have fun. Explore. Click on each state and region. We bet you learn something.

The project, which is found at, allows users to observe the 13 unique regions and the states that comprise them along with the geographic linkages, infrastructure networks, energy resources and energy consumption trends that distinguish them. Viewers can compare and contrast these key indicators and explore connections among each of the 50 states.

"The story of energy in America is a great one and one worth telling to anyone who will listen," said Renzi Stone, Chairman and CEO of Saxum. "Making this unique story and all of its complexities relevant to the public is one of the biggest challenges for today's energy industry communicators. In order to tell America's energy story in a clear, beautiful and engaging way, Saxum developed The United States of Energy."

The U.S. of Energy 2.0 is an extension of the original project, which launched in 2013, to provide a broad overview of our country's energy potential. To create the content for The U.S. of Energy 2.0, Saxum analyzed data from a broad range of industry and government sources – including the U.S. Geological Survey, U.S. Energy Information Administration and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission – and developed a ranking system for each state in terms of its market, resources and infrastructure.

Stone notes that the ultimate goal of The U.S. of Energy is to distill the multi-layered story about America's rich energy potential into a useful tool for individuals, companies, reporters and industry experts across the nation.

"The U.S. is one of the world's largest consumers of energy and has recently become the leading global energy producer," said Stone. "No other industry provides more benefit to securing the lifestyles we enjoy. But there's a great amount of misunderstanding about this complex industry. The U.S. of Energy is our effort to make it more understandable."
