    Track 1: Sustainability, Livability, Resiliency
    The Nature Conservancy, BEC Environmental, the Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI), and the Wilderness Society have partnered together to map the potential and suitability of brownfields in Nevada, including mine and industrial sites, for renewable energy development. This panel discussion will explore the challenges and opportunities for renewable development on brownfields in rural counties. A key takeaway from the panel will be a proposed roadmap for communities to facilitate the redevelopment of brownfields and become participants in the clean energy economy.
