Support for solar power and renewable electricity generation at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
by Krausz, Brian, M.S., The George Washington University, 2009, 57; 1464560
Abstract (Summary)

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is poised to play an important role in supporting national plans for renewable electricity generation. As distributed and centralized renewable electricity projects forge ahead, EPA must establish criteria for evaluating the environmental effects of electricity-related consumer products and ensure that future infrastructure projects are consistent with the mission of environmental protection. EPA authority and programs for evaluating environmental effects of electricity may need expansion in order to accomplish these goals.
