Australian Offshore Wind Market Update 2022 (SDI Webinar)
06 April 2022
Scottish Development International, the Scottish Government's international economic agency, is delighted to present an update on the offshore wind market in Australia, focussing on the state of Victoria.
Please join us to hear from two leading developers, as well as the Victorian Government that has recently announced an ambitious offshore wind target of 9GW by 2040 and a plan to accelerate offshore wind projects for the State.
The passing of the Offshore Electricity Infrastructure Bill in 2021 has paved the way for offshore wind projects to be constructed in Australian waters.
Significant offshore wind zones have been identified in Australia with a capacity totalling more than 40GW. To date 17 offshore wind project proposals are already in the pipeline, totalling 24GW.
