Redefining Siting: Bridging, Planning, Policy, and Practice


Members Only

The challenges of building clean energy projects have shifted from technical and economic toward a complex mix of social and institutional barriers. A growing number of communities are saying “no” to building new projects, calling into question whether current siting policies and engagement practices will be able to support the several-fold increase in clean energy needed to meet U.S. goals.

During this PowerCasts program, researchers and practitioners will explore the efficacy of where and how siting decisions are made and approaches to planning and community engagement that would best support just decision-making and accelerate clean energy deployment. Panelists will share and discuss insights from “Science of Siting,” a two-part workshop series hosted by the Clean Air Task Force (CATF), in partnership with the University of Michigan’s Graham Sustainability Institute in Fall of 2023.

This program will serve as a preview to the topics that will be discussed at ACP’s Siting and Permitting Conference. Join to get a taste of the event, and register for the conference to dive deeper into the topics covered during this PowerCasts program.

During this webinar, attendees will:

  • Gain a broader understanding on the complexity and nuance of social and institutional barriers to siting clean energy
  • Learn about the valuable interplay between social science and practice
  • Hear innovative, new ideas and approaches to policy, planning, and practice around siting clean energy
