WASHINGTON, DC --- On Wednesday, February 9th the Department of the Interior will host an onshore renewable energy workshop. The two-day conference will bring together stakeholders from across the government, renewable energy industry, and conservation community to discuss the administration's efforts to rapidly and responsibly stand-up renewable energy projects on our nation's public lands.
