EnergyOcean International 2012

Tuesday, June 19, 2012

This week I am attending EnergyOcean International 2012, the ninth annual conference for the offshore renewable energy sector.

This morning's keynote address was delivered by Tommy Beaudreau, Director of the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management. Director Beaudreau gave an overview of BOEM and how its Office of Renewable Energy Programs fits in with other responsibilities like offshore oil and gas leasing and regulation.

Upcoming presentations include a discussion of global offshore renewable energy development, marine spatial planning, best practices for managing interactions between wildlife and offshore projects, an update on what's happening with wave and tidal energy, and a review of successful project finance strategies.
