Enable grid-independent energy and waste-to-energy systems.


EN-5.1 Evaluate and advocate for changes in existing land development regulations and standards regarding the installation and use of energy-efficient and small-scale distributed renewable and modular waste-to-energy systems that are grid independent, while maintaining the integrity of the urban development boundary and ensuring that such policies do not promote suburban sprawl. Waste-to-energy systems should be coupled with a zero waste plan.

IMPLEMENTERS: local governments, non-profit organizations
