Discover the Encyclopedia in all its aspects

Who are we ?

Thematic articles to discover energy in all its aspects

With an average length of 5 and 10 pages, they are aimed at a large readership warned of their difficulty in reading by the mention under the title of each of them: easy, not very difficult, fairly difficult, difficult. Articles are listed in the Encyclopedia in order of insertion, but they are easily accessible by keywords on the home page and by a search engine. In addition, they are linked together by references [] which structure the body of knowledge.

Biographies of the authors who wrote the articles

Their publication has a dual purpose: to personalize each thematic article and to make known the researchers or professionals who work on each subject dealt with. This information should allow readers to know where to turn to supplement the knowledge gained from reading the articles and, if the authors wish, to initiate a dialogue with them. (see Your Suggestions)

Bibliographical references to complete the thematic articles

Classified in alphabetical order of their authors, these data will facilitate, thanks to the search engine, the rapid gathering of a few works or scientific journal articles on a given subject, whether or not it is covered in the thematic articles. The references were selected solely on the basis of their quality and not of their relevance to current events, so as to encourage the development of a historical culture, essential for the understanding of present and future developments.

The presentation of competence centers on energy

They belong to universities, research organizations, companies or associations. Some can be of great help to readers who have not found the knowledge sought in the thematic articles or the bibliography. Establishing contact with one of these centers could lead to the discovery of new sources of information and even to fruitful interpersonal relationships.

Your suggestions

Those who consult the Encyclopedia may in turn become its authors by reacting to what they discover there. They will fulfill this role whenever they make known:

  • the subjects they sought, but could not find, in the Encyclopedia;
  • topics they would have liked to see treated differently, specifying their preferences;
  • the authors they would like to get in touch with;
  • authors whose names they would like to see in the Encyclopedia;
  • the skills centers they have requested, with or without success;
  • bibliographic references to add or for which the comment could be modified (the latter is designed to increase the efficiency of the search engine)
  • any suggestions relating to improving the quality of the Encyclopedia, in content and form.
