Subject: [CPEO-BIF] RE-Powering America’s Land: Action Plan 2.0
RE-Powering America’s Land
Action Plan 2.0

October 31, 2014

In October 2014, the RE-Powering America’s Land Initiative released the final version of its Action Plan 2.0, which articulates the goals and objectives of the Initiative and the activities it expects to pursue over the next two years. This action plan articulates the continuation of activities that have been impactful and suggests areas of new emphasis.

Since its inception in 2008, RE-Powering America’s Lands has promoted renewable energy development on current and formerly contaminated lands, landfills and mine sites when such development is aligned with the community’s vision for the site. To define goals, articulate activities and make them transparent to its stakeholders, the Initiative periodically develops an action plan. The plan communicates Agency efforts more specifically while retaining flexibility to take advantage of opportunities as they arise.

The Agency released this action plan in draft form and sought public input during May 2014. As a result of comments from stakeholders and additional conversations both internal and external to the Agency, EPA revised the action plan to reflect the perceived needs and opportunities for renewable energy on contaminated lands, landfills and mine sites.
