The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) recently issued a draft report on the renewable energy potential for power production on federal lands. The report says that there are 64 public land areas in 11 western states that have a high potential for power production from one or more renewable energy sources. Of those sources, 19 areas in six western states could develop three or more renewable energy sources.

The report was prepared together with the Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). It examined the potential for generating power using concentrating solar power, photovoltaic solar power, biomass power, wind energy, and geothermal energy.
