According to “Four-year wind power promotion plan”, the offshore wind power strategy consists 3 phases, which include Demonstration Incentive Program, Zones Application for Planning, and Zonal Development. This will improve development and utilization of wind energy, and reach the 5.7 GW goal for offshore wind by 2025.

  • Mid-term Target: Offshore 976 MW by 2020
  • Long-term Target: Offshore 5.7 GW by 2025
Strategies for Offshore Wind
