With 29,751 kilometers of coastline—the seventh longest in the world—Japan has plenty of opportunity for offshore wind as a source of low-carbon, renewable energy. But, until recently, offshore wind development was limited to ports and harbors, which make up only 1.5% of territorial waters. Compared with another island nation, the UK, Japan is at the other end of the scale in terms of installed capacity, with a very modest 62 megawatts. The UK leads the world with 7,899 megawatts.
But there is hope for change. Earlier this year, Japan passed into law the Offshore Renewable Energy Act, followed by guidelines for project approval and the designation of prime areas for wind farms.
Join us for a discussion of the current and upcoming challenges and opportunities associated with leveraging Japan’s full offshore wind potential. Featured speakers—including Japanese experts and overseas wind developers—will compare market conditions in Japan with those in other markets, such as the UK.
