Expand in Japan’s offshore renewable energy sector

With a large Exclusive Economic Zone and high wind speeds at sea, Japan’s geographic conditions are conducive for offshore wind. The sector is poised to grow over the next 20 years, with plans to install 10 gigawatts (GW) of offshore wind by 2030, and 30-35GW by 2040. Japan’s rising demand for offshore wind is matched by its commitment to researching and piloting innovative low-carbon technologies, an effort supported by government, private sector, and research institutes. Learn how your business can scale to meet Japan’s energy needs.

  • Rising demand in Japan's offshore wind market
    Japan is poised to become a leader in offshore wind developments. Japan’s unique seabed and weather patterns require floating offshore wind turbines, and their optimal configuration is currently the subject of much technical research. Partner with Japanese companies to jointly address the opportunities across the offshore wind value chain.
  • Innovation opportunities in low-carbon technologies
    Japan has set aside US$3.366 billion out of their US$18.2 billion Green Innovation (GI) fund for research and innovation in offshore wind, hydrogen, Carbon Capture and Storage, and Maritime decarbonisation. Japan’s resourcing for low-carbon initiatives is matched by the robustness of its R&D ecosystem comprising government agencies, national research and development agencies, private enablers, institutes of higher learning and trade associations. Discover how your company can access the innovation opportunities available.
