With East Asia’s largest economies — China, Japan and South Korea — committed to reaching net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, offshore wind will play a huge role in developing their hydrogen economies.

Figures compiled exclusively for TW+ by VesselsValue show that Asia’s 5GW of offshore wind today (compared with 19GW in European waters) will increase to more than 600GW by 2050.

That will be nearly triple Europe’s projected capacity of 215GW in 2050.
