Reports/Rapports : Transitioning to Renewable Energy: Development Opportunities and Concerns for Rural America

Source: RUPRI/Community and Regional Development Institute (CaRDI).
"Rural America can provide the energy of tomorrow. Indeed, rural communities not only have the opportunity to reemerge as dominant producers of biomass energy where agricultural land predominates, but also of wind energy atop the hills, hydropower throughout the valleys, and solar across the plains and deserts."

"Abundant natural resources will be a necessary ingredient in the development of more water-, wind-, and biomass-intensive forms of energy. With vision and planning, rural America could even be home to new systems of distributed energy generation, which would lessen the need for costly energy transmission and transportation that is required to move energy to the places it is consumed or efficiently stored for later use."
