The spotlight has never shined brighter on clean energy project siting and permitting.

While clean energy projects are pouring into the pipeline, the industry is experiencing unprecedented delays across the country.

Getting projects off the ground is becoming more and more challenging. At ACP’s expanded Siting & Permitting Conference, previously known as the Siting & Environmental Compliance Conference, industry leaders, experts, and stakeholders convene to collaborate on challenges, best practices and solutions.

Pre-Conference Programs | Monday, March 11 | 2:00 - 4:00 PM MT

Add one of the two pre-conference programs to your registration to supercharge your learnings at #ACPSiting24.

Go outside the bounds of the main agenda and take an off-grid topical deep-dive before the official conference begins. These extended programs explore topics that need more than a typical conference session to fully explore are an additional $75.

Winning Community Support: Addressing Opposition & Misinformation 

Learn from the experts on how to develop persuasive messaging, engage trusted, influential voices to build support for renewable energy deployment in rural communities, and understand how to effectively educate decision-makers about the benefits of renewable energy projects. Leave the workshop having gained knowledge around successful tactics and tools to understand the on-the-ground challenges and how to adjust strategy to be more successful.

Making the Most of Post-Construction Monitoring Efforts 

Monitoring is widely used and intended to evaluate the impact of human activity on wildlife. However, monitoring is costly and becomes an inefficient use of resources if the results are not informing management decisions. Data from monitoring efforts is collected in several repositories and databases, which can inform our understanding of renewable energy-wildlife interactions and help develop strategies to minimize negative impacts and overcome permitting hurdles. This interactive workshop will bring together experts from several renewable-energy wildlife data repositories as well as experts in data collection, management, and analyses to discuss the barriers that limit the usefulness of current available monitoring data and potential pathways for a process to make the best use of this information moving forward.
