Wind energy, especially offshore, could become a key power source as the country reviews its energy strategy, Vestas Wind Systems A/S (VWS) Chief Marketing Officer Morten Albaek said.

“If Japan is going to reduce its imports of fossil fuels, then you need to get more renewable energy into the energy mix,” he said in an interview in Tokyo. “Wind will play a key role, and offshore wind will be a significant segment inside wind energy.”
