In that same month, the President’s National Energy Policy Development Group recommended to the President, as part of the National Energy Policy, that the Departments of the Interior, Energy, Agriculture, and Defense work together to increase renewable energy production. On August 8, 2005, the President signed into law the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (Pub. L. 109–58). Section 211 of the Act states, ‘‘It is the sense of the Congress that the Secretary of the Interior should, before the end of the 10-year period beginning on the date of enactment of this Act, seek to have approved non-hydropower renewable energy projects located on the public lands with a generation capacity of at least 10,000 megawatts of electricity.’’ Implementation of the Wind Energy Development Program and the amendment of multiple land use plans to adopt the program will effectively support the directives of E.O. 13212, the recommendations of the 2001 National Energy Policy, and congressional direction provided in the Energy Policy Act of 2005 regarding renewable energy development on public lands. Dated: December 19, 2005. Ray Brady, Team Lead, Energy Policy Act Implementation Team. [FR Doc.
