"Japan's offshore wind farm market is set to gain momentum, with legal safeguards and subsidies helping to draw domestic and international participants amid a shift away from fossil fuels.”
Nikkei Asian Review, Feb 2019

Japan is set to develop renewables as a core energy portfolio. With the rise of sustainable investing in alternative energy and post-Fukushima nuclear disaster, the bill was passed last November allowing offshore wind farms to operate in Japan for up to 30 years.

Is your company joining the other domestic and international companies who are engaged in Japan’s offshore wind power including

  • Orix will spend 100 billion yen ($903 million) to build an offshore wind farm in Chiba Prefecture.
  • Tepco will enter the domestic offshore wind power market as well through a partnership with Denmark's Orsted
  • Germany's E.ON is also planning to partner Japanese power providers to build both onshore and offshore wind farms. 
  • With the purchase of British wind farm installer Seajacks International in 2012, Marubeni has started feasibility testing and developing competency to build and operate offshore wind farms.
  • The joint venture between Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and Denmark's Vestas is developing a 10-MW wind turbine for the Japanese market.

Offshore wind farms are still extremely scarce in Japan. This presents as attractive option for the government to promote long-term growth and new earning streams for the private sector.

Japan is mostly surrounded by deep seabeds, and floating wind turbines and technology seems to be viable but relatively costly option. Whilst Europe leads globally in projects and capacity, wind energy generation cost is almost levelling with coal-fired power in some parts of the continent. Can these case studies and experiences be transferred to Asia, and particularly Japan? 

CMT's OWP Japan zooms into the opportunities and key tasks ahead for offshore wind power to grow in Japan.  Contact hafizah@cmtsp.com.sg for more information & sign-ups!

Japan considers reducing restrictions on wind power to boost capacity

Posted on : 03 Dec, 2018


As the Japanese government aims to increase wind power capacity in the country to 10 million kilowatts by 2030, it is looking at removing some of the restrictions on building wind power plants in Japan. Since 2012, Japan had subjected wind power generation to environmental assessment. This system, required wind power plants with an output of 10,000 kilowatts or more to undergo the assessment.


Now, Japan's Environment Ministry plans to raise the output from the current level and only mandate large-scale wind power plants to undergo environmental impact assessments.


These environmental assessment requirement has proven to be a huge obstacle for wind power capacity generation in Japan as the procedure takes up to four to five years and incurs huge costs.


Although the deregulation is expected to reduce the time and financial burden on plant constructors, there are also concerns over wind power plants causing deforestation and endangering birds that strike windmills.
