This report provides interested parties-local governments, communities, utility and energy companies, and federal and state agencies-with an overview of renewable and alternative energy opportunities at Superfund sites. Renewable energy facilities can be located on formerly contaminated lands. Renewable energy can also facilitate the cleanup of Superfund sites. In some cases, site wastes can serve as an alternative energy resource. Finally, the report describes available resources for parties interested in pursuing these opportunities. To ensure domestic energy security and environmental sustainability, the identification of diversified, renewable and alternative energy sources is a long-term national priority. In 2008, EPA launched a new effort-the Siting Renewable Energy on Contaminated Land and Mining Sites Initiative-to highlight opportunities for the development of clean and renewable energy projects on contaminated lands. EPA is also working to help turn these opportunities into reality for communities across the country. EPAs Superfund Redevelopment Initiative (SRI) helps communities reclaim and reuse contaminated lands for a wide range of purposes, including renewable and alternative energy generation. Through tools, partnerships and activities, SRI continues to provide local communities with new opportunities to grow and prosper.
