In order to protect the global environment, the introduction of renewable energy, especially wind power generation, is being expanded worldwide. In particular, the development of offshore wind power generation is growing rapidly in each country, because it has great potential.
The Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), a global wind power industry group, has been holding the "Global Offshore Wind Summit" on the theme of offshore wind power in nine countries since 2016. They provide the experience and knowledge of offshore wind power in them.

In Japan as well, “Public-Private Council on Enhancement of Industrial Competitiveness for Offshore Wind Power Generation” started in 2020, and in December 2020, the "Overview of the Vision for Offshore Wind Power Industry" was formulated. In this vision, the government introduction target of offshore wind power generation is also stipulated as the introduction target of 10GW by 2030 and 30-45GW by 2040. At the same time, first bidding in general sea area (“Round 1”) has started based on "Act on Promoting Utilization of Sea Areas for Renewable Energy Generation".
With the momentum of offshore wind power generation booming, the Japan Wind Power Association (JWPA) has decided to hold the "Global Offshore Wind Summit-Japan". We are confident that this event provide a great opportunity for exchange between domestic and foreign offshore wind-related industries , and will further support Japan's offshore wind development

What is "Global Offshore Wind Summit" ?

The Global Offshore Wind Summit is an event led by the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC). It has been held every year since 2016 and in nine countries around the world. It provides a valuable opportunity for businesses, organizations and other stakeholders connected to the offshore wind industry to benefit from the coming together of a vast array of knowledge and experience in the field.

Significance of "Global Offshore Wind Summit"

Public and private sector initiatives to promote the introduction of offshore wind power generation in Japan have made rapid progress since last year. Clear targets for the introduction of wind power have been established by the Japanese government and Round 1 of the country’s offshore wind auctions in accordance with laws promoting the utilization of marine areas for renewable energy are underway.
Japan's offshore wind industry is moving forward in earnest and is attracting attention from numerous stakeholders from related industries in Japan and overseas. By bringing together a wealth of experience, advanced technology and expert insight in the field of offshore wind power generation, the Offshore Wind Summit - Japan 2021 is expected to make an important contribution to related industries both in Japan and around the world.
