The Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory announced November 4 that they would partner together to evaluate the feasibility of developing renewable energy production on Superfund, brownfields, and former landfill or mining sites. As part of the RE-Powering America’s Land Initiative, the EPA is investing roughly $1 million for projects across the country aiming to revitalize abandoned sites while protecting human and environmental health and providing economic benefits to local communities.
