About Us

The Wind Energy Development Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is being prepared by the U.S. Department of the Interior Bureau of Land Management (BLM) with assistance from Argonne National Laboratory (Argonne).

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), an agency within the U.S. Department of the Interior, administers 264 million acres of America's public lands, located primarily in 12 western states. The BLM sustains the health, diversity, and productivity of the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations.

The Washington Office Lands and Realty Group provides Bureau-wide leadership and guidance for implementing the authority of Section 302 of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act to issue leases and permits for the use, occupancy, and development of the public lands, including wind energy development. Argonne National Laboratory is a U.S. Department of Energy national research center. Argonne's Environmental Science Division conducts applied research, assessment, and technology development in such areas as risk and waste management, natural resources, integrated assessments, restoration, pollution prevention environmental policy analysis and planning, and environmental management.
