‘Collaborative Effort to Develop Offshore Wind with Tokyo Gas and 13 Additional Partners’


A consortium consisting of Tokyo Gas and 13 other Japanese companies is planning to develop technology for mass-producing floating offshore wind power facilities at a low cost. The consortium, which is expected to be established soon, includes major players such as JERA, Kansai Electric Power, Tohoku Electric Power, and Chubu Electric Power.

Despite having offshore wind assets in countries like Taiwan, Belgium, and Britain, Japanese companies have not yet constructed large-scale wind farms domestically. This initiative represents a significant step towards tapping into the potential of offshore wind power in Japan.

The move towards developing affordable and efficient technology for floating offshore wind power facilities reflects a growing interest in renewable energy sources in Japan and could pave the way for the expansion of wind energy projects in the country.

This development underscores the commitment of Japanese companies to embrace sustainable and eco-friendly energy solutions, positioning them as key players in the global push towards clean energy initiatives. This collaborative effort signifies a concerted push towards harnessing the power of wind energy to meet Japan’s future energy needs.
