Addressing the Potential Liabilities Associated with Siting Renewable Energy on Contaminated Lands
Internet-based seminar
Hosted by U.S. EPA

This webinar will focus on addressing the potential liabilities associated with siting renewable energy on current and formerly contaminated lands and mining sites including thousands of acres of Brownfield, Superfund, mining, and other potentially contaminated sites with potential for utility scale renewable energy facilities. Siting renewable energy on these types of sites also offers significant benefits to the communities as well as the states in which they are located.

Many current and formerly contaminated sites have infrastructure in place such as transmission lines and roads, thereby reducing the need for local government investments. Renewable energy can provide a reuse option for contaminated sites that don't have other viable uses, or are located in sensitive communities. It also avoids development of greenfields that might otherwise be used to site these facilities. In addition, these facilities may generate tax, land use, and royalty revenues and provide construction and maintenance jobs.

During this session, representatives from the U.S. EPA's Center for Program Analysis and Office of Site Remediation and Enforcement will present an update on EPA's RE-Powering America's Land initiative as well as introduce a new fact sheet explaining tools available for liability relief at sites where the re-use is intended to be renewable energy generation. Lastly, the session will feature a case studies from Pittsfield, MA where renewable energy projects and their associated liabilities were successfully developed and addressed.
