From Open Energy Information

OpenEI Projects are focused efforts to improve some piece of OpenEI. Each effort is coordinated via one or more project pages within the "OpenEI:" wiki namespace. Anyone is free to participate in any projects. If you'd like to start an OpenEI Project, simply create a new project page and link to it in the "Active Projects" section below. OpenEI Projects are largely based on the concept of Wikiprojects in Wikipedia.
