Report: Benefits of EPA Initiative to Promote Renewable Energy on Contaminated Lands Have Not Been Established

Report #15-P-0198, July 16, 2015.

What We Found

EPA does not know the benefits realized from its efforts to promote siting renewable energy on contaminated lands. As a result, the agency is unable to demonstrate benefits realized for the $4 million it stated it has invested in these efforts since 2008.
