The US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management is holding a stakeholder event on 17 September to consider potential leasing areas for offshore wind farms off the coast of California.

The California Intergovernmental Renewable Energy Task Force meeting will review and discuss the issuance of a call for information and nominations on possible leasing areas.

It will be held at the Citizen Hotel in Sacramento between 8.30am and 3.00pm.

BOEM said members of the public are also invited to attend.

The task force was set up in 2016 and comprises federal, state and local agencies, as well as tribal governments.
