Renewable Energy - References and Guidance

Additional Guidance

The Energy Policy Act (EPACT) of 2005 defines "renewable energy" as electric energy generated from solar, wind, biomass, landfill gas, ocean (including tidal, wave, current, and thermal), geothermal, municipal solid waste, or new hydroelectric generation capacity achieved from increased efficiency or additions of new capacity at an existing hydroelectric project.

In addition, at least half of renewable energy used by the Federal government must come from new renewable sources (in service after January 1, 1999).

In FY 2009, UNICOR began to manufacture photovoltaic solar panels.
