The flowcharts available in this tool cover the major requirements for developing energy projects, including, land access, siting, exploration and drilling, plant construction and operation, grid interconnection, water resource acquisition, and relevant environmental considerations. To use the flowcharts, start with the Overview Flowchart for Section 1, or jump to the Overview Flowchart for a section you are interested in. These Overview Flowcharts will lead you to the federal and state flowcharts you will need.
