About Asia in Focus Webinar Series


GWEC Market Intelligence’s latest market outlook predicts that China will continue to install the lion’s share of offshore in Asia. Taiwan is expected to be the largest offshore market in Asia after China. The market will become more diversified from 2025 onward when more large-scale offshore wind projects are set to be commissioned in Japan, South Korea and Vietnam. New capacity is also likely to be built in emerging markets such as India and the Philippines. New installations in Asia are likely to exceed 10 GW in 2026 and then reach a level of nearly 15 GW by 2030. By 2050, Asia is projected to increase new wind power installations by nine folds, totaling 613 GW of offshore and 2,646 GW of onshore wind power.

Recent project activity has been centered around new early-stage sites being established. More late-stage development projects are expected to secure a route-to-market in Japan and Taiwan for 2022. New projects are announced in Asia’s leading markets. This presents significant growth opportunities for wind power-related companies and associated industries. The main developers are international established players, most of these companies require local partnerships in each country in Asia.

Asia in Focus is a networking and webinar series that discusses the development status and entry strategies of the leading markets in the region. GWEC intends to enable the global wind energy network to access opportunities and develop partnerships with the local players in Asia. Each session will feature a topic, or a specific market, with an invited guest speaker. Participants will break into small groups to meet new contacts, share experiences and explore opportunities with participants from Asia and across the world.
