[Analysis Report] Japan's Offshore Wind Power PotentialTerritorial Sea and Exclusive Economic Zone

Renewable Energy Institute released "Japan's Offshore Wind Power Potential: Territorial Sea and Exclusive Economic Zone” (originally published in Japanese on 28 November).

In order to make concrete projections of offshore wind power growth in Japan, this report provides estimates of the offshore wind energy potential based on calculations of wind speed and water depth conditions only, for those sea areas where both data are available. Areas where feasibility was assumed to be difficult, such as areas with water depths exceeding 1,000 m along the submarine cable installation route, have been excluded. The report presents the findings for wind power potential for all of Japan, by 10 regional areas and by prefecture in the sea areas including territorial waters and EEZs.
