BOEM hosts first-ever offshore wind energy auction for the Gulf of Mexico, resulting in a shortfall of interest from developers, with only 1 of 3 sites awarded.
RWE was the only developer securing a wind area lease in yesterday’s auction round, offering $5.6 million for the Lake Charles (1244 MW) site off the coast of Louisiana. The two other sites, Galveston I (1244 MW) and Galveston II (1175 MW) off the coast of Texas, saw no bids and remain unawarded. A total of 15 different developers were pre-qualified for the round, including TotalEnergies, Mainstream, Shell and Iberdrola.
