The State of Rhode Island and many of its communities areconsidering investing in renewable energy infrastructure. URI has been invited by the state to provide technical expertise about the effects renewable energy may have on the people, wildlife and natural resources of Rhode Island. Based on this information, and through extensive public involvement, a URI team of skilled professionals in the fields of energy, research and planning will then develop guidelines that can be used by Rhode Island's cities and towns to site and manage this new activity. Additionally, the RESP project will make state and municipal energy information accessible to the public through the creation of a comprehensive online energy database.
