Realizing the enormous untapped potential of offshore wind resources, the Global Offshore Wind Alliance (GWOA) is launched by representatives from the Danish, US and other governments, the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) and the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) on Monday 19th September a public event in New York.
The new Global Offshore Wind Alliance is created with the ambition to create a global driving force for the uptake of offshore wind through political mobilization and the creation of a global community of practice. Global Offshore Wind Alliance’s vision is a world in which offshore wind makes a significant contribution to the energy transition and the achievement of the sustainable development goals through large-scale renewable power generation, benefiting regions, countries and critical sectors such as industry and transportation.z3791113663823 005bf1ee6648006001f9e0a9e42cc968To benefit from the substantial potential and opportunities deriving from offshore wind, it is pivotal that governments, private sector actors, international organizations and other relevant stakeholders work together to remove the barriers to scaling up investment and finance. Global Offshore Wind Alliance (GOWA) will work to:- Raise ambition on offshore wind amongst governments and other public and private stakeholders.- Support the creation of policy frameworks and efficient offshore wind value chains to bring new and existing markets to maturity through e.g., sharing of best practices and capacity building.- Create an international community of practice to drive action on offshore wind deployment as a key to achieving 1.5 degrees pathways.Global effort to promote the development of offshore wind technologywwwwwwwwwwwwwwAt the public meeting, leaders and representatives of organizations expressed their opinions about the importance of the global offshore wind alliance and set the goal for promoting wind energy by 2030.According to this discussion, the aim of Global Offshore Wind Alliance (GOWA) is to contribute to achieving a total global offshore wind capacity of a minimum of 380 GW by 2030, with 35 GW on average each year across the 2020s and a minimum of 70 GW each year from 2030, culminating in 2,000 GW by 2050.Danish Minister for Climate, Energy and Utilities, Dan Jørgensen said:“A massive increase in energy from offshore wind is key to fight climate change, phase out fossil fuels and strengthen energy security. We cannot do it alone but must work together across countries and regions. With extensive experience in the field and a long history of sharing it with the rest of the world, we are looking forward to joining forces with partners who share our vision and ambitions“.Francesco La Camera, Director-General, IRENA also gave their utterance:“Offshore wind technology is the gateway to new sites leveraging high-wind resources. A blue economy driven by renewables also brings socioeconomic benefits to coastal communities. But to truly succeed, we need greater cooperation and this is why the Global Offshore Wind Alliance can help by creating the partnerships necessary to drive the global energy transition across oceans and land.”Sources: GWEC Global Wind Energy Council
