BOEM Proposes Updated Oceanic Clean Energy Regulations

Bureau set to streamline internal processes and enhance compliance provisions.

The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management recently proposed updates to the regulations for clean energy development on the U.S. Outer Continental Shelf. The agency suggested many updates to the current regulations, including clarifications for ambiguous provisions, streamlining internal processes, and enhancing compliance requirements for the deployment of offshore wind facilities.

“Offshore wind will power our communities, advance our environmental justice goals and stimulate our economy by creating thousands of good-paying union jobs across the nation,” said Secretary Deb Haaland. “Updating these regulations will facilitate the safe and efficient development of offshore wind energy resources, provide certainty to developers and help ensure a fair return to the U.S. taxpayers.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Haaland as she manages the Interior Department.
  • For Director Elizabeth Klein as she heads the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management.
  • For U.S. officials as they pursue renewable energy sources.
