EPA-NREL Partnership on EPA’s RE-Powering America’s Lands Initiative to Identify High Potential Sites for Renewable Energy
EPA’s RE-Powering America’s Land Initiative encourages 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. The Initiative identifies the renewable energy potential of these sites and provides other useful resources for communities, developers, industry, state and local governments, or anyone interested in reusing these sites for renewable energy development. This presentation will discuss the RE-Powering program, resources, and tools, plus NREL’s engagement with feasibility studies to evaluate sites for techno-economic potential of renewable energy.
About the Speakers:
Gail Mosey has worked at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) as Project Lead and Senior Energy Analyst for 17 years. Gail holds a Master’s degree in Economics from Colorado School of Mines and a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with an emphasis in Finance from the University of Colorado. Gail’s primary area of expertise has been developed as NREL’s lead for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (US EPA) RE-Powering America’s Lands Initiative on siting renewable energy on environmentally compromised lands including economic and technical feasibility and any related community impact.
Gail also works with tribes and villages on strategic energy planning that includes energy efficiency and renewable energy solutions to meet tribal energy requirements and improve resiliency. Gail is also engaged in identifying holistic community energy solutions for remote, island and Arctic communities including aspects related to food sustainability and security and the food-energy-water-shelter nexus.
Tim Rehder is a Senior Environmental Scientist for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in its Denver regional office. He currently works in the Brownfields program which works to put contaminated or formerly contaminated properties back into productive use. He leads efforts to promote energy-efficient buildings and renewable energy systems on Brownfields. Tim was instrumental in establishing EPA’s Repowering America’s Lands initiative, which was recognized by Harvard as a top ten government program.
Prior to his present assignment, Tim was a project manager for EPA’s hazardous waste cleanup program where he oversaw two of the largest cleanup projects EPA has been involved with: The Rocky Flats nuclear weapons facility and the Denver Radium site. Tim earned a bachelor’s degree in geology from Western State College and a Masters in Geology from Southern Methodist University.
