Limbo lands are sites such as brownfields, landfills, abandoned mine lands, former industrial sites, former superfund sites, and certain government installations. These sites have the potential for use as renewable energy generating stations. Various types of renewable energy technologies (RETs) can be considered for redevelopment of limbo lands.
This course will present the study that was prepared by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Various types of RETs will be discussed and evaluated for several limbo lands throughout the United States.
This course material is based on the document “Converting Limbo Lands to Energy-Generating Stations: Renewable Energy Technologies on Underused, Formerly Contaminated Sites,” as published on the website of the United States Environmental Protection Agency.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
