Optimizing the Use of Federal Lands Through Disposition

The foundation of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Legacy Management’s (LM) Goal 4, “Optimize the use of land and assets,” is to establish environmentally sound and protective land uses on LM sites. LM believes there can be beneficial uses of land even though regulatory or other land-use restrictions may be needed. As part of Goal 4, LM will make its lands available for government, public, and private uses, provided such uses maintain cleanup efforts and are consistent with the site remedies, the tenets of sustainability, and the best resource-management practices.

Commercial-Scale Renewable Energy Project Development and Finance Workshop

The DOE Office of Indian Energy and the Tribal Energy Program, with support from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, are hosting an interactive workshop that will walk participants through the process for and potential pitfalls of developing commercial-scale renewable energy projects on tribal lands. Whether small or large, the goal of a commercial-scale project is to generate revenue for the Tribe, and the electricity is sold off the reservation. Examples include a solar field or a wind farm.
