Japan has strong ambitions to grow within renewables and reduce its carbon emissions. Equinor believes Japan has high potential to develop an energy market for offshore wind. Our long-standing interest in the Japanese market enables us to explore renewable and low carbon business opportunities and build a position within the Japanese offshore wind industry.

Offshore wind opportunities in Japan

The coast of Japan offers interesting opportunities for developing offshore wind, especially in deeper waters well suited to floating wind technology.

With the world’s sixth largest sea space, Japan’s long-term potential for offshore wind energy is estimated by the Japan Wind Power Association to be ~ 600 GW. Installed capacity is about 50 MW.

Our presence in Tokyo is important for developing relations with stakeholders, access business opportunities and build a position within the Japanese offshore wind industry. In addition to offshore wind Equinor is also supporting other business activities in Japan, like low carbon value chains (hydrogen/ammonia).

Our credentials in renewables and low carbon solutions

Equinor aims to be a leader in the energy transition, building a material position in renewable energy. 

Equinor now powers more than one million European homes with renewable offshore wind from four offshore wind farms in the United Kingdom and Germany. Equinor is building material offshore wind clusters in the UK, the US North East and in the Baltic Sea. The company commissioned the world’s first floating offshore wind farm in 2017 off the coast of Scotland and is positioned for future floating wind options in several geographies, including UK, Norway and Asia
