ReVenture Park (“ReVenture”) is an ambitious plan to Reclaim, Restore, and Reinvent a 667 acre Superfund Site along the Catawba River in Charlotte, NC into the region’s first Renewable Energy Eco-Industrial Park. This project will create one of the most dynamic and multi-faceted renewable energy developments currently being contemplated in the United States. The project is poised to become a national model for innovative redevelopment of Brownfield industrial property, and it will serve as a template for other large projects that are similarly situated.
Featuring multiple clean-energy projects, ReVenture will advance the Charlotte region’s environmental and economic goals by attracting a myriad of renewable energy and alternative fuel projects. The Eco-Industrial Park is designed to leverage synergies between multiple sustainable components including a Waste-to-Energy power plant, solar fields, incubator labs, wastewater treatment and reuse, and R&D facilities. When fully development, ReVenture is estimated to generate over $900 million of new investment and create more than 1,000 “green collar” jobs.
This project substantially advances Charlotte’s vision of becoming the “New Energy Capital” and will be a catalyst for attracting renewable energy companies and fostering new technologies.
