Abstract

This Interactive Qualifying Project (IQP) focuses on siting renewable energy on brownfield sites in the Montachusett region in response to the grant given by the Economic Development Administration. Assessment of renewable energy is conducted in terms of site characteristics, including area and available resources. Implementation on brownfield sites is scrutinized with regards to incentives, policies, social impacts, environmental impacts, and cost. The final product provides a tool to assist with and encourage siting renewable energy on brownfields.
