Energy


Example of Wind Energy.

The sustainability and security of the Nation’s energy resources are defining and immediate issues.The national forests and grasslands are important sources of clean, renewable energy that can help offset fossil energy and emissions. Both public and private forests can host diverse kinds of energy production, including conventional sources as well as robust transmission efforts. These energy resources—along with the science, technology, creativity, and innovation to make them sustainably and cost-effectively available—are expected to be a major key to satisfying the Nation’s energy demands and will create energy-related jobs into the future.

The Forest Service Strategic Energy Framework sets direction and proactive goals for the Agency to play a significant and long-term role in resolving challenges to our energy resources, on which our environment and quality of life depend.


Release of Wind Energy Directives

The Forest Service amended wind energy guidance on National Forest System (NFS) lands.
