What is an RSS feed?

RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. It is a Web feed system used to automatically send frequently updated information to users.

The system allows you to group together feeds from different online sources in one central location. It is updated on a regular basis so you can receive the latest news from the AEE (Agence de l’efficacité énergétique) and any number of content editors that interest you.

Thanks to the RSS feed, you no longer have to consult all of your favorite sites to stay informed. All you need to do is add the RSS feed of each site into an RSS-compatible application that allows you to view all your sources of information on the same page. That way, you can stay up-to-the-minute, no matter how many fields of interest you have.

Others are stand-alone office applications, offered free of charge or for a nominal fee. Type “RSS reader” in any search engine and you will find a complete list of relevant links.

Most sites that publish RSS feeds display the following symbol:

Most of the time, all you have to do is click on the symbol, and your RSS application will automatically add the feed to your list of subscriptions. However, it is possible that you may have to copy the complete URL address in the appropriate field of your RSS application.

Once you’ve completed these steps, you’ll receive regular TEQ's news updates in your RSS application!
