Wind Energy Development Map: BLM Partners
The Oregon/Washington BLM supports the Renewable Energy & Eastern Oregon Landscape Conservation Partnership and its efforts to enhance coordination and collaboration between stakeholders working on potential renewable energy development and conservation issues with the State of Oregon.
The Renewable Energy & Eastern Oregon Landscape Conservation Partnership is a Governor led effort "co-convened" with the BLM. The Partnership was established to collaboratively address the needs and issues inherent to renewable energy development and habitat conservation across eastern Oregon. Partners seek collaborative approaches to mutually address issues, beginning with sagebrush and Greater sage-grouse issues, to determine criteria for identifying areas in eastern Oregon that have potential for new energy development as well as those areas where there are significant challenges to development.
Current Partners include:
- Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife
- Oregon Department of Energy
- Oregon Department of State Lands
- Association of Oregon Counties
- Natural Resources Conservation Service
- U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service
- U.S. Forest Service
- Governor's Office of Natural Resources
- The National Policy Consensus Center
- USDI Bureau of Land Management
