Even though Northeastern states have ambitious renewable energy goals, will barriers to siting new wind generation and transmission in a land-constrained region stymie their efforts? A new research paper from America’s Power Plan (APP), “Siting Renewable Generation: The Northeast Perspective,” seeks to answer this question by combining existing siting policy work and proposing new approaches to siting renewable energy and the transm...
