June 26, 2012

The Energy Department has announced the publication of the draft Federal Renewable Energy Guide: Developing Large-Scale Renewable Energy Projects at Federal Facilities Using Private Capital in the Federal Register for industry and agency comment. This Guide provides a project development framework to help federal agencies, private developers, and financiers coordinate on large-scale renewable energy projects that will help achieve federal renewable energy goals.

The Guide is available on the Federal Register website and is open to public comment until July 2, 2012. The Federal Register Notice contains specific questions from the Energy Department for public consideration. Please e-mail comments to FEMPLargeREGuide@ee.doe.gov.

Beyond providing a development framework to speed the deployment of renewable energy, this Guide is intended to be a general resource that will advance federal employees’ understanding of project developer operations and improve industry’s understanding of federal processes. Since the majority of the investment required to implement large-scale renewable energy projects will come from the private sector, this Guide has been organized to match federal processes with typical phases of commercial project development.
