Welcome to the energyfolks platform!

energyfolks is more than just a website, it is a free embeddable platform that allows any person, group, club, or entity to create their own branded website in moments that shows and shares energyfolks content and includes a fully featured user management system.

The energyfolks platform offers several advantages:

  • Fully Flexible: Use our wordpress plugin to build your site in moments, or try our libraries to integrate into a custom environment
  • Display full or filtered energyfolks content on your branded site, including events, jobs, discussions, and members
  • Use the energyfolks account management system to allows signups, profiles, and more for your group
  • Keep your focus on your core mission and constituency; energyfolks maintains the server and the code (all you need is a URL and basic webspace)
  • The service is free and takes only moments to setup for most sites
  • and a whole lot more...
