Vietnam could be a significant market for offshore wind, but the country’s government needs help with policy, regulation and planning to make it possible.
The Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA) says offshore wind is well-placed to replace emissions-intensive and expensive coal-fired electricity in Asia, a development that could also have implications for shipping.
The offshore wind energy sector and emerging markets will contribute an increasing share of annual growth in wind energy over the next decade, says a leading market intelligence company.
Energy demand is likely to continue to grow strongly in the Asia Pacific region, with renewables and offshore wind in particular set to play a growing role.
More than 680 GW of new wind power capacity will come online globally in the next decade, according to research by Wood Mackenzie Power & Renewables, much of it offshore.
The authors of Wood Mackenzie Power & Renewables’ latest report on the global wind power market highlight the Asia Pacific region, in addition to Europe, as a key region for offshore wind energy.
Global offshore wind power capacity will increase almost six-fold over the coming decade with projects in as many as 18 countries by 2027 and local content becoming increasingly important as more countries adopt it.
