Consulting & Engineering: Renewable Energy Practice


Environmental Management and Planning Solutions, Inc., for facilitating stakeholder vetting of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s Regulatory and Permitting Information Desktop (RAPID) Toolkit for geothermal and solar developers aiming to build on federal lands. RAPID guides developers and agencies through the maze of federal (e.g. NEPA) and state permitting requirements. Geothermal roadmaps have become available for the federal level and 12 western states, while solar roadmaps are currently online for federal lands and California. Because the toolkit is available in a wiki-based platform, any stakeholder with an account can manage the information.
