May 31, 2011

NRDC's statement for the record for a June 1, 2011 House Committee on Natural Resources' oversight hearing, addressing the contention that federal permitting processes are forestalling the deployment of renewable energy technologies derived from solar, wind, and geothermal generation. NRDC indentifies and quantifies prevailing factors, other than permitting, that are broadly impeding the greater adoption of these types of renewable utility scale projects.
