You’re Invited: BOEM Gulf of Mexico Regional Task Force Meeting on Renewable Energy

Release Date

The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management will host its first Gulf of Mexico Intergovernmental Renewable Energy Task Force meeting on June 15. The meeting will be held virtually from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm (Central Time). The purpose of the meeting is to:

  • Facilitate coordination among Federal, state, local, and Tribal governments regarding the wind energy leasing process on the Outer Continental Shelf in the Gulf of Mexico.
  • Share information about existing Gulf of Mexico activities and marine conditions.
  • Provide updates on regional offshore wind goals.

The task force is a non-decisional, intergovernmental group comprised of Federal, state local, and Tribal government representatives. Task force meetings bring together members to coordinate and share information on proposed offshore renewable energy-related activities in Federal waters in the Gulf of Mexico.

The Gulf of Mexico is well-positioned to transition to a renewable energy future. The Gulf Coast States comprise 32% of the shallow-water offshore wind potential in the U.S., with the highest potential wind resources off the Texas and Louisiana coasts.

The public is invited to attend the meeting and there will be an opportunity for questions and comments. Additional meeting information, including an agenda, is available at
