This project examines the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's RE-Powering America's Land initiative and seeks to demonstrate a strong future for siting renewable energy resources on brownfield sites. The project also explores the Environmental Justice Movement and argues for inclusion of environmental justice principles in the RE-Powering America's Land Initiative. Finally, the project presents case-study of a brownfield site at 95 Grand Street, Worcester, MA and applies information presented in the project to the site, providing guidelines for implementation of a renewable energy development project.
