Renewable energy development on Federal lands has made steady, albeit slow progress in recent years. But that may be changing. Federal renewable mandates and efforts to fast-track permitting are accelerating development and this conference details the specific changes and trends that may make Federal lands even more attractive for renewable developers.
This conference will provide both an overview of renewable energy development of federal land and detailed sessions on specific aspects of development by bringing together government officials, companies, consulting firms and project managers who have successfully completed renewable projects, as well as NGOs and legislative representatives whose current and pending lawmaking will shape future projects. Attendees will gain detailed and specific knowledge in critical aspects of the government‚s role in facilitating renewable energy development through case study discussion of completed and operating renewable energy on federal land, including proactive strategies for avoiding common obstacles.
