As part of the RE-Powering America’s Land Initiative, the EPA and the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) are evaluating the feasibility of developing renewable energy production on Superfund, brownfields, and former landfill or mining sites. This project pairs EPA’s expertise on contaminated sites with the renewable energy expertise of NREL. The project aims to decrease the amount of green space used for development, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, ensure EPA’s commitment to protecting human health and the environment, and provide economic benefits to local communities, including job creation.
