How can we put underutilized and contaminated land to new use to maximize climate and community-related benefits? This session will explore the ways in which landfill solar development provides a timely opportunity to leverage new IRA benefits and economic incentives and discuss real case studies.
Understand the potential of repurposing underutilized and contaminated land, such as landfills, brownfields, and old coal mines, for solar development to maximize climate and community-related benefits.
Explore the ways in which the "greening" of these sites can contribute to the energy transition and align with the goals of clean energy generation and environmental remediation.
Gain insights into the utilization of new benefits and economic incentives provided by the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) to support landfill solar development and similar initiatives.
