California Military Energy Opportunity Compatibility Assessment Mapping Project (CaMEO CAMP) – Phase 1 (Active)

The CaMEO CAMP project will enable a better understanding of the potential for renewable energy development and associated facilities within operational military influence areas in order to proactively define where appropriate early consultation with the Department of Defense (DoD) should occur, and also to enable that coordination through an easy to use process and tool

Tasks

  • Task 1 Project Initiation and Administration

    • Task 1.1 Work Plan Development

      Develop and refine the CaMEO CAMP Work Plan in coordination with OPR staff including project timelines and associated work plan tasks.
    • Task 1.2 Kick-Off Meeting

      Host Kick-Off meeting with OPR staff and the Steering Group to review available data, resolve any data gaps, and identify initial compatibility issues related to military operations and energy development.
    • Task 1.3 Project Administration and Management

      Host Kick-Off meeting with OPR staff and the Steering Group to review available data, resolve any data gaps, and identify initial compatibility issues related to military operations and energy development.
  • Task 2: Data Collection

    • Task 2.1 Military Mission Requirements

      Schedule and facilitate meetings with military installation staff and military service representatives from each of the military services, including the Coast Guard to collect all relevant data needed to characterize the existing renewable energy development conditions within the project area. This task will require coordination with military installations and military service representatives to gather planning documents and spatial data relating to military mission requirements over at least a 15-year planning horizon. The mission requirements should include the utilization of public resources (i.e. public land, air, and water spaces) that could impact public and private land, air, and water spaces including but not limited to: • Sea and water spaces used for military training or logistics. • DoD managed lands. • Special Use Airspace, (i.e.Restricted Airspace, Military Operating Areas). • Military Airspace(i.e., Military Training Routes (MTRs), Drop Zones, Special Use Airspace (SUA), Military Operations Area (MOA), etc.). • Airport Surveillance Radar and Weather Radar view sheds.
    • Task 2.2 Federal Requirements

      Schedule and facilitate meetings with representatives from federal agencies and Native American tribal entities within the study area to collect all relevant data and information needed to characterize the existing renewable energy development conditions within the study area. This task will require coordination with federal government staff and tribal entities to gather planning documents and spatial data relating to land use, military, and energy infrastructure planning over at least a 15-year planning horizon. Data will include existing and future land use, utility infrastructure and service areas, and environmental and cultural resources.
    • Task 2.3 Local Requirements

      Schedule and facilitate meetings with representatives from city and county governments and Councils of Government within the study area to collect all relevant data and information needed to characterize the existing renewable energy development conditions within the study area. This task will require coordination with local government staff to gather planning documents and spatial data relating to land use, military, and energy infrastructure planning over at least a 15-year planning horizon. Data will include existing and future land use, utility infrastructure and service areas, and environmental and cultural resources.
    • Task 2.4 Industry Requirements

      Schedule and facilitate meetings with representatives from various renewable energy industries to summarize development plans, requirements and challenges associated with renewable energy development in the study area. Information and data to be collected will include the following: • Wind resource maps (NOAA and NREL). • High Power Transmission Lines (existing and proposed). • Existing and proposed renewable energy development areas. • Conduct a review of current and planned renewable energy projects, transmission lines.
    • Task 2.5 Stakeholder Identification

      While many jurisdictions can be initially identified during previous subtasks, the Contractor will work with OPR staff and the Steering Group to identify any other relevant stakeholders including additional local jurisdictions, state and locally elected officials, state and federal agencies, and other relevant stakeholders.
  • Task 3: Stakeholder Engagement

    • Task 3.1 Stakeholder Engagement Strategy

      Prepare a stakeholder engagement strategy and develop a CaMEO CAMP Project Website to be maintained throughout the duration of the project. The website and all publicly available documentation shall be ADA compliant in accordance with Section 508 of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The Contractor is expected to utilize a variety of outreach methods, to include site visits, designed to reach multiple stakeholders involved in or impacted by renewable energy project siting.
    • Task 3.2 Site Visits

      Conduct site visits with identified stakeholders and the general public as appropriate to complement data provided or collected by request.
    • Task 3.3 Stakeholder Engagement Strategy

      Evaluate all data that has been collected from stakeholders and identify initial findings and prepare summary.
  • Task 4: Analysis

    • Task 4.1 Compatibility Analysis

      The Contractor will review data and information gathered through previous tasks to develop a comprehensive analysis report of the renewable energy landscape and compatibility with military installations and activities in northern California.
    • Task 4.2 Best Practice Identification

      Use information from previous analyses to identify local and regional best practices to support compatible renewable energy development. The best practice identification will be used to facilitate the implementation of current legislation in support of compatible siting of energy projects at the state and local level. Any model language that may be provided should be in a format that can be modified by local and state entities to facilitate adoption.
    • Task 4.3 Compatibility Mapping

      Develop spatial data and mapping depicting the renewable energy landscape in northern California and areas compatible for the siting of renewable energy projects including solar, wind, wave, biomass, and geothermal energy generation as well as energy transmission infrastructure.
  • Task 5: Development of Renewable Energy Land Use and Permitting Report

    • Task 5.1 Compatibility Analysis

      Assist OPR staff and the Steering Group with the development of the California Military and Energy Land Use and Permitting Report that summarizes the project results and provides information and guidance for renewable energy development throughout the study area.
  • Task 6: Development of Renewable Energy Interactive Mapping Tool

    • Task 6.1 Interactive Web-based Tool Testing

      Work with OPR staff and the California Department of Technology to develop and test an interactive web tool using data collected and mapping developed under previous tasks within this project (Task 4.3). The tool will build upon the California Military Land Use Compatibility Analyst (CMLUCA) and will be hosted and maintained by OPR through the California Department of Technology. This task will include a plan to operate and maintain the web-based tool with current OPR staffing constraints. The web-based tool and all publicly available documentation shall be ADA compliant in accordance with Section 508 of the ADA.
  • Final Delivery

  • Task 7: Final Report and Presentation of Web-based Tools

    Present and discuss the final California Military and Energy Land Use and Permitting Report and web-based tool to the Steering Group.
