You’re Invited: Offshore Wind Energy Planning Data Review Workshops

Release Date

As part of ongoing planning for potential offshore wind energy leasing in Oregon, the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) and the Oregon Department of Land Conservation and Development (DLCD) will host virtual workshops on August 4 and 11, 2021. During the workshops, BOEM and DLCD will share data from the Oregon Offshore Wind Mapping Tool (OROWindMap) and other data collected during the statewide data gathering effort that began in the fall of 2020.

OROWindMap, a tool developed by the State of Oregon and BOEM, provides an extensive catalog of information that is provided by authoritative sources around the region. The public is encouraged to share additional information and provide input on the datasets, which may inform future offshore wind energy leasing in Oregon.

On August 4, 2021, the virtual workshop will focus on physical, human, and biological data catalogued in OROWindMap. On August 11, 2021, the virtual workshop will focus on fisheries-related datasets.

Meeting dates and times are: 

  • August 4, 2021, 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. PT

Physical, human, and biological datasets

  • August 11, 2021, 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. PT
