Brownfield Listings (BL) has announced the National Solar Energy Development Event taking place in Newark, New Jersey on June 19, 2018. The primary focus will be on repurposing brownfields, greyfields and landfills as renewable energy facilities (AKA “brightfields”).
The event will take place on the campus of the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) in downtown Newark, New Jersey on June 19, 2018. Attendees will enjoy high caliber educational sessions scheduled along two separate tracks in the morning. The landowners track will focus on converting contaminated, blighted and marginal property into brightfields with productive use generating solar power, while the developers track will focus on the ins & outs of transacting and (re)developing solar energy on greyfields, brownfields, landfills and Superfund sites.
Organized by the New Jersey Institute of Innovation in collaboration with the Center for Creative Land Recycling, this solar redevelopment event will also host U.S. EPA Technical Assistance to Brownfield (TAB) experts who will be available to field questions and provide guidance to attendees with questions about brownfields, land use, RFP/Q’s, grants, regulations and other technical issues.
The first 100 landowners signing up 1+ parcel/project for the solar market mixer will attend the entire event free of charge.
Approximately 200 people attended the last BL-supported solar development event in Chicago, which was tremendously successful with a bevy of strongly received projects and RFP/Q’s, including an Amesbury, Massachusetts solar-on-landfill project that set a record as the most-bid project of any type in town history.
