As for bulk downloads of data... We currently offer the following:


    "Download CSV" links are present on certain pages (e.g. http://en.openei.org/wiki/Map_of_Clean_Energy_Companies)


    A SPARQL endpoint for querying data (http://en.openei.org/sparql), plus a few examples of its use (http://en.openei.org/resources/)


    RDF Exports of any given page via the "browse properties" link (e.g. http://en.openei.org/wiki/Special:ExportRDF/Colorado)

We realize that we could be doing more in this area, though. A few things we're planning to do:


    Provide a bulk download of our complete RDF (similar to how one can get complete dbpedia exports)


    Provide a better way to find various datasets (and download them in various formats, such as RDF and CSV)


    Provide a mechanism for submitting bulk datasets which is separate from, but complementary to, our Wiki)
