The Inflation Reduction Act is poised to transform the U.S. energy landscape by lowering the cost of solar, wind, storage, and other zero-emissions technologies. However, only a fraction of land across the U.S. is suitable for developing these renewable projects.

Siting power projects presents a host of challenges that could limit how much clean energy is brought to market and how fast the transition happens. In this paper, our experts leverage data and technology to identify the best locations for clean energy projects.
