You're Invited: Public Training Session on Offshore Wind and Wave Energy!


SAVE THE DATE: The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) would like to invite you to a free two-day public training session on offshore renewable energy technologies on July 29-30, 2014, in Sacramento, California.

As BOEM prepares for proposed future renewable energy projects offshore the West Coast, we are initiating a proactive outreach initiative with the Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) to educate interested stakeholders on offshore renewable energy technologies best suited for areas on the Pacific Outer Continental Shelf, and the multi-faceted complexities of such marine-based energy systems.

The two-day training session will include presentations by experts from NREL on offshore wind and marine hydrokinetic (MHK) technologies and will also include technical expert panel discussions. The first day of the training, July 29, 2014, will focus on offshore wind technology and the second day, July 30, 2014, will focus on MHK technology.

This FREE two-day training session is open to the public and will be held in Sacramento, California. When the venue is finalized, BOEM will send out an updated email notification with location and final training agenda. This information will also be published on our website at Please forward to any other parties who may be interested in this opportunity to learn about offshore renewable energy technologies.
