Oregon Coast Energy Alliance Network
Welcome to the Information Hub of emerging Ocean and other Advanced Energy projects for the Oregon Coast
The Oregon Coast Energy Alliance Network is a cross-cultural community-based organization with the initial mission to explore the opportunities and challenges of floating offshore wind energy.
We believe that our coastal interests should be front and center in shaping what Offshore Wind projects might look like.
OCEAN’s purpose is to evaluate the impacts and maximize the social and economic benefits to coastal communities of any proposed advanced energy project with an initial focus on Floating Offshore Wind.
OCEAN supports an informed and engaged coastal citizenry making decisions about our own energy, economic and cultural futures.
OCEAN is advocating for the funding of collaborative efforts amongst our climate, oceanography, environmental, fisheries and energy scientists to hasten our understanding of our continental shelf and ocean resources.
There are both pros and cons to any large industrial scale project. We hope to identify and address all concerns as the conversation progresses.
As information becomes available and pertinent to local advancements, the contributors to this website will strive to keep you up to date, offering opportunities to engage, and maintaining transparency for the community.
The conversation for Offshore Wind Energy on the West Coast has just begun. Be a part of that conversation.
In September of 2019 the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management convened an Offshore Wind Task Force meeting to discuss Offshore Wind and how it might impact coastal communities. From this gathering, the Oregon Coast Energy Alliance Network OCEAN was formed.
Our members represent tribal, county, labor, environmental, business development, shipping, climate action, energy access advocacy and resilience interests.

OCEAN is promoting a “bottom up” process of front-loaded stakeholder engagement designed around our coastal community perspective and interests. Our goal is to inform and influence coastal energy projects and policies when they are in the earliest, formative stages to maximize the benefits to our coast’s citizens, ecology, and economy.
