Presentation Overview:

EPA has placed national priority on showcasing opportunities for the development of clean and renewable energy projects on contaminated lands. EPA's Superfund Redevelopment Initiative (SRI) supports the use of renewable energy at Superfund sites and has actively provided site owners and local communities with technical support and resources to explore innovative reuse opportunities available at these sites. Highlighting SRI's support activities as well as case studies from sites with solar projects in place and generating electricity, this webinar will highlight how EPA worked with site stakeholders and solar developers to design and enable renewable energy project fully compatible with long-term protectiveness of a site. It will also focus on the challenges and benefits found in developing a large solar facility on formerly contaminated sites (e.g., landfills) and highlight the role of these sites in supporting development and how local communities and site owners can see economic and environmental impacts from renewable energy development on current and formerly contaminated lands.
