BOEM has seen very strong interest in offshore renewable energy projects on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS). BOEM is working closely with several states regarding offshore energy development and is in the process of coordinating federal-state task forces in certain coastal states. A summary of the status of activity in the different states can be found below:
