Japan – Huge Potential of Offshore Wind
The Japanese Cabinet approved the 4th Basic Plan on Ocean Policy on April 28th, 2023, following the 20th meeting of the Headquarters for Ocean Policy led by Prime Minister Fumio Kishida. The plan prioritizes comprehensive maritime security and sustainability, aiming to expand offshore wind project installation including introducing domestic legislation to allow offshore wind power generation facilities to be built in the EEZ(s) and additional designation of Offshore Wind Hub Ports under the new Basic Ocean Policy. The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport, and Tourism (MLIT) has announced that the Port of Niigata is now the fifth Offshore Wind Hub Port.
While the country’s regulatory framework and high electricity prices pose significant obstacles, Japan’s offshore wind potential and commitment to renewable energy provide a strong foundation for the industry’s growth.
