Japan's offshore wind market is experiencing significant growth and transformation, with the government setting ambitious targets and implementing new policies to encourage development. By 2030, Japan aims to install 10 GW of offshore wind capacity, with plans to expand this to 20-35 GW by 2040.

Recent auction rounds have seen diverse participation from both Japanese and foreign companies. The winners included major consortia like JERA, Mitsui, and Sumitomo, often in partnership with international firms like RWE and Iberdrola.

The upcoming Round 3 auctions, scheduled for bid submissions by July 2024, will cover the Sea of Japan and Yuza areas, aiming to add another 1.05 GW of capacity. These auctions are expected to continue diversifying the market and bringing in more foreign investment.In addition to fixed-bottom turbines, Japan is exploring the potential of floating offshore wind farms, particularly in its Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ). The government is preparing legislation to facilitate the development of these projects, with a specific focus on overcoming regulatory and logistical challenges.
