Renewable Energy GIS Data

The Renewable Energy Program develops, maintains and uses GIS data for a wide range of activities related to planning, assessment and environmental review of renewable energy project s on the Outer Continental Shelf. This page provides direct access to data that the program has developed or maintains. GIS compatible data is in shapefile, raster, text/tabular or geodatabase format.
