Tool to Determines Solar and Wind Energy Potential of Contaminated Sites

The alternative energy “decision trees,” developed by the EPA and the US Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), give landowners, communities and elected officials ways to evaluate sites for renewable energy potential from a logistical and economic standpoint, without the need for technical expertise. The tools can be used to evaluate individual or multiple sites, such as brownfields, Superfund and other hazardous waste sites, abandoned parcels, landfills, parking lots, and commercial or industrial roofs, depending on the technology.
