The Gulf of Mexico being assessed for its renewable energy capability and it was good to take part in the inaugural task force session refining the way forward for the region.


BOEM assembled an impressive array politicians key stakeholders and those wishing to input their expertise as the US takes advantage of recent global developments in the offshore wind industry.



During the course of the discussions comments ranged from the criticality of jobs and opportunities for host communities, local content, stakeholder input and recent developments encompassing aspects such as green ammonia and hydrogen.

Technical considerations

On 7July another potentially significant development for the region was reported in the trade press:


Offshore Wind for the Gulf of Mexico is up and running and I’ll be tracking developments closely. Feel free to join me at the Offshore Wind and Hydrogen Professionals Group.
