Webcast on Wind: Doing Business in China's Offshore Wind Market

20 May 2019 I 10:00-12:00 CET

About the Webcast

China installed its first offshore turbine on an abundant offshore oil & gas platform in Bohai Sea in 2007, and in 2017, the country passed the 1 GW annual installation milestone. Last year, China installed more than 1.6 GW offshore wind, making it the world’s largest offshore wind market in terms of new installations. According to GWEC Market Intelligence’s forecast, China is likely to surpass the UK as the world’s #1 market in cumulative installation in 2023, with about 20 GW of total offshore wind capacity to be built by that time. 

Although at the of 2018, all the offshore wind turbines installed in Chinese water were 100% owned by domestic developers, a landmark deal signed by EDF and China Energy Investment Corporation this year has opened the door to international offshore wind developers, giving this market even more potential to grow.
