Danes will discuss offshore wind in Japan
In late February and early March, Japanese professionals in wind power will meet with a delegation of Danish offshore investors, developers and manufacturers within the wind industry. Participants will discuss how Japan can take advantage of the Danish experience on offshore wind turbines.
The Danish business delegation starts out in Kitakyushu Monday, February 27, where they will meet the city authorities and local stakeholders. In Tokyo, they will meet with Japan Wind Power Association (JWPA) and a number JWPA members to a seminar, visit ECO Power Co. and Marubeni Corporation.
Thursday, March 2, the delegation will participate in the Wind Energy Expo & Conference 2017 in Tokyo, where additional Danish companies will demonstrate and exhibit their skills in the Danish pavilion.
The Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) has announced that renewable energy by 2030 is to make up 22-24 percent of the Japanese electricity production. Japan currently only has 53 MW of offshore wind capacity installed.
