Interior Department outlines roadmap for continued renewable energy progress on public lands

WASHINGTON — As part of its commitment to support and inspire a clean energy transition, the Department of the Interior today announced a series of steps taken to advance the Biden-Harris administration’s goal to permit 25 gigawatts of renewable power on public lands by 2025.
