The Japan Offshore Wind Task Force, formed jointly by the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) and the Japan Wind Power Association (JWPA) aims to address regulatory and industrial bottlenecks that stand in the way of unlocking Japan’s vast offshore wind power potential. The Task Force is chaired by Jin Kato, President at JWPA, and Alastair Dutton, Chair of GWEC’s Global Offshore Wind Task Force.
The Japan Offshore Wind Task Force brings together both local and global wind industry players, and focuses on engaging regularly with key stakeholders such as the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI), and the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) to share best practices, conduct studies and create enhanced stakeholder cooperation to build a thriving offshore wind market in Japan.
