Why Japan?

Japan’s offshore wind power has begun to move! In October 2020, the Japanese Government announced its goal to achieve “Carbon Neutral by 2050″ to combat global warming. Offshore wind power is nominated as the most effective industry to achieve this goal, and the government is committed to growing this new industry.
  • “Public-Private Council on Enhancement of Industrial Competitiveness for Offshore Wind Power Generation” is jointly organized by the Japanese government (including Ministers of METI and MLIT) and core industry members (CEOs of electric powers, construction companies, etc.). It is just like a “Sector Deal” in the UK.
  • Ambitious target, “10GW by 2030 and 30-45GW by 2040” is announced by METI in the “Vision for Offshore Wind Power Industry (1st)” at the 2nd council on 15 December 2020.
  • The first offshore wind power auction in the general sea area (so-called “Round 1”) has been conducted and the 1st winner at Goto area in Nagasaki Pref. is announced on 11 June 2021. The other winners at the Akita and Choshi area are to be announced this coming November 2021.
