The Deepwater Horizon tragedy in the Gulf of Mexico had a profound impact across the United States and led to a series of major reforms within the Department of Interior. In October of those reforms resulted in the creation of BSEE, which, from the outset, was a Bureau charged to vigorously enforce offshore safety and environmental regulations, as well as promote a culture of safety.

The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) researchers helped undertake these studies, funded by BOEM’s Environmental Studies Program. “Offshore Renewable Energy Technologies in the Gulf of Mexico” analyzed different offshore renewable energy technologies to determine which are best suited for development in the Gulf of Mexico.
