Title: Sites Pre-Screened for Biomass and Biofuel Potential
Abstract: The RE-Powering Screening Dataset spreadsheet contains detailed information on over 130,000 contaminated lands, landfills, and mine sites with screening results for renewable energy potential. Please review the Data Documentation for Mapping and Screening for more details regarding the information contained in this file.The RE-Powering Mapper and associated documents are provided solely as general information on screening potential. It does not address all information, factors, or considerations that may be relevant in a particular situation. Results do not reflect an endorsement or recommendation for development potential by EPA. References to third-party publications, websites, commercial products, process, or services by trade name, trademark, manufacturer, or otherwise, are for informational purposes only. No endorsement or recommendation should be inferred and is not implied. EPA, NREL and the United States Government do not endorse any non-federal product, services or enterprise.

Use: Although these sites were preliminarily screened for renewable energy potential based on a number of technical considerations, many other factors should be considered in order to determine a project's ultimate feasibility. Renewable energy developers and/or relevant stakeholders usually conduct rigorous site-specific analyses to verify both technical and economic feasibility.
