Hawaii Intergovernmental Renewable Energy Task Force Meeting

News Release from BOEM, 05-12-2016

The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) invites you to attend the Hawaii Intergovernmental Renewable Energy Task Force (Task Force) meeting on May 16, 2016 at:

Homer A. Maxey International Trade Resource Center
Pier 2, 521 Ala Moana Boulevard
Honolulu, Hawaii

BOEM will provide an overview of recent and upcoming milestones for leasing areas in Federal waters off Oahu, Hawaii, for offshore wind development. Specifically, BOEM will present the details of BOEM's next step in the planning and leasing process, a Call for Information and Nominations (Call).

The Call is a notice BOEM will publish later this summer in the Federal Register that initiates a 45-day comment period to solicit further industry interest in identified areas offshore Oahu, Hawaii. BOEM will also present the areas it is considering for commercial leasing offshore Oahu. This presentation will include an explanation on how such areas were delineated. In addition to identifying industry nominations, the Call will also seek public input on the areas identified for potential development, including comments on site conditions, resources, and existing uses.

Registration begins at 8:00 a.m.; the meeting will start at 9:00 a.m. and is expected to end by 2:00 p.m. Two public question and answer sessions will be held; one session will begin at 11:30 a.m. and a second session will begin at 2:15 p.m. A copy of the meeting agenda can be viewed at http://www.boem.gov/2016-Hawaii-Task-Force-Agenda/

The Hawaii Task Force is a non-decisional, intergovernmental group comprised of Federal and state officials and elected local government representatives. Task force meetings bring together members to coordinate and share information on proposed offshore renewable energy-related activities in Federal waters off Hawaii.
