Unlocking funding for climate action through U.S. infrastructure and land management


Why are infrastructure deployment and land management important? 

In order to integrate more clean energy technologies to the energy grid, the U.S. will need to double its existing U.S. transmission system and make siting decisions in local communities nationwide. Siting and decision making for transmission and clean energy projects will require optimizing land use, economic growth, and community benefits.

Land use, including land management practices and bioenergy production, represents over 10% of emissions in the U.S. Land use planning involves evaluating tradeoffs and the full lifecycle emissions of bioenergy and other energy sources, building transmission infrastructure systematically, and siting clean energy projects with local engagement.

The resources below share information about available federal funding to help clean energy infrastructure deployment and land management, explain technology options to achieve decarbonization goals, and support the deployment of clean energy projects with helpful research, tools, and education materials.
