    Decarbonizing the U.S. energy system will require a massive build-out of renewable energy facilities, which could prove increasingly challenging in land-constrained areas, where facilities need to be deployed on or adjacent to private land. While some private landowners and surrounding communities welcome development for the lease fees and other benefits it brings, many staunchly oppose it, typically on aesthetic and/ or environmental grounds. Under pressure from opponents, some municipalities have adopted laws, intended to block development.

    This webinar will discuss those laws and recent attempts to challenge them by renewable energy developers, landowners, community groups, and state authorities. It will also explore new approaches to renewable energy siting, which could lessen the potential for adverse impacts, and thus minimize opposition to future development.
