DOE launches mobile app for energy emergencies

from IAEM

The Department of Energy (DOE) launched a mobile app called Lantern Live to help users quickly find critical information about nearby gas stations and power outages during energy emergencies. Lantern Live allows users to report the operational status of local gas stations, find fuel, and look up power outage maps from local utilities, while also accessing useful tips and guidelines. With the launch of this app, DOE is testing the power of crowdsourcing and open data in disaster and recovery. Lantern Live's code will also be open source, allowing technology innovators and entrepreneurs to reuse the code in their own apps, explore new opportunities for other sectors and applications, and further leverage the power of open data. Lantern Live is available free for Android devices through Google Play. more
