RE-Powering America’s Land: An Update on EPA’s Initiative to Promote Renewable Energy on Contaminated Lands, Landfills and Mine Sites
Adam Klinger, Senior Analyst, U.S. EPA’s RE-Powering America’s Land Initiative
EPA continues its efforts to encourage renewable energy development on current and formerly contaminated lands, landfills and mine sites when such development is aligned with the community’s vision for the site. The RE-Powering America’s Land Initiative identifies the renewable energy potential of tracked EPA and state sites and provides useful resources for communities, developers, state and local governments and other interested stakeholders. The webinar will discuss the program’s efforts to date, observed trends and opportunities for future development.
