COMBINED HEAT AND POWER ON BROWNFIELD SITES

Future Energy Development, in partnership with the Pace Energy and Climate Center and the Northeast Midwest Institute, recently completed a NYSERDA funded project, and released the NYSERDA CHP on Brownfields Report, educating brownfield developers of the benefits of Combined Heat and Power systems for commercial and industrial applications.  Combined Heat and Power systems capture the heat energy that is usually wasted as part of an electrical power generating system to provide a heat source for buildings or industrial processes.  The energy efficiency improvements, which are supported by federal and state incentives, lead to significant cost savings.   


SOLAR PANEL INSTALLATION ON NEW YORK LANDFILLS

Future Energy is actively working with solar companies to site solar panel installations on New York landfills. Since closed landfills are non-income producing parcels, municipal landfill owners are generally interested in this new business concept. The municipality gets income, as well as a source of renewable power, and the solar company a large site on which to place install panels and generate renewable power.

SITING BIOFUEL STATIONS ON NY BROWNFIELDS

Future Energy is also actively working with municipalities to offload tax delinquent properties, often former gasoline stations. These sites provide excellent locations for new stations that will be dedicated to new biofuels products.

Consultants to Renewable Energy Developers

SITE SELECTION SERVICES

Future Energy's principals have been working on the redevelopment of commercial and industrial real estate in New York for over 20 years. As a result, Future Energy is familiar with large and small commercial and industrial properties ideal for many renewable energy projects. We will help you identify and acquire or lease the perfect site for your projects. In-house legal counsel can prepare purchase agreements or leases and get you through closing.

REGULATORY SERVICES

Future Energy is staffed with attorneys who can help your renewable energy company determine the regulatory programs that apply to your installation project. As the renewable energy industry grows, so do the number of applicable new regulations. You do not have to keep up, we will for you.

PERMITTING SERVICES

Generally, a renewable project requires federal, state and/or local permits or approvals. Future Energy will help your company secure such permits or approvals by preparing all required applications or other paperwork. Your upfront lead time before installation should be significantly reduced with our assistance.

NEPA and SEQRA ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW SERVICES

Any projects receiving federal financing or requiring a permit from a federal agency require an environmental review under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). Additionally, most states have a State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA) which requires an environmental review for state and local actions.  These environmental reviews require the environmental impacts of a project to be analyzed in an assessment application form and sometimes in a detailed Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). Future Energy can assist you by preparing the application and EIS, and coordinating the services of any specialty consulting firms required to analyze specific impacts, such as storm water, visual, or wildlife impacts. We can minimize cost by managing consultants and preparing the overall format of the relevant materials.

FINANCIAL INCENTIVE SERVICES

Since commercial and industrial sites are often contaminated properties known as "brownfields", Future Energy assists clients to secure participation in the applicable state brownfield incentive programs. The company also specializes in bundling together other incentive financial benefits available to redevelop such sites. These benefits, when available, can be extremely lucrative and often serve to convince developers to locate their projects to your area..
