2020 oil warEdit

The 2020 Russia–Saudi Arabia oil price war is currently rated low-importance, but with oil prices falling below zero (producers paying people to take their oil), this seems to be of more import? Especially since it is an oil industry crash for regions with hard access oil (oil shale, oil sand, etc). And regional economic crashes for producers of higher priced production oil. -- (talk) 08:05, 21 April 2020 (UTC)

Home energy upgrades from public utilitiesEdit

I've started a Wikipedia article that can become a useful reference for people who work in or around the Public utility industry world wide. The article, Home energy upgrades from public utilities, has initially been placed in the scope of the Energy WikiProject. I've developed the article to its present form, which provides information on some key utility assistance programs in the United States and several other countries.

In its current state, the article just scratches the surface of the utility-homeowner assistance story and could be further developed to cover many more assistance programs. This is one of so many matters where Wikipedia's objectivity can help hold the climate change needle to +1.5 degrees C in 2100.

I'm looking for Wikipedia editors that find this topic compelling. Does this subject interest you? Can you suggest others who may be motivated by this theme?

Thanks, in advance, for your thoughts!

Very nice topic! As you mention is just scratches the surface, and I don't think it's appropriate for Wikipedia to attempt to a catalogue these: they should be discussed holistically, perhaps from the viewpoint of how state/federal legislature requires utilities to offer some of these programs. I added a link to DSIRE which is where residents should really go if they want a comprehensive list of what might be available to them. Not to mention this being US-centric. Thanks for your work on this, and perhaps there are more articles than can link to it so it might get more traffic. Reywas92Talk 22:41, 24 April 2020 (UTC)

Texas Alliance of Energy ProducersEdit

Was wondering is some members of this WikiProject would mind taking a look at this article? I came across it via WP:THQ#posting a picture. There quite a bit of formatting cleanup that’s probably needed, but it’s the overall promotional tone and a bit iffy WP:NORG that might need a looking at by multiple errors. There may have been some WP:COI/WP:UPE editing over the years, including the most recent burst, but that can be cleaned up or trimmed out if the organization is notable. — Marchjuly (talk) 22:09, 13 June 2020 (UTC)

Wikidata in listsEdit


At Talk:List_of_active_coal-fired_power_stations_in_Turkey#Keeping_this_list_in_step_with_other_articles_and_lists I propose that if a list exists in a non-English Wikipedia the corresponding English list should be allowed to use Wikidata for its tables.

Your comments there would be welcome.
