China and Norway are both global leaders in offshore wind energy. China has 20% of the worlds installed capacity for bottom-fixed offshore wind, leading the pace with Germany and the UK. Norwegian energy and technology companies are heavily involved in bottom-fixed and floating wind projects in the North Sea and Americas, and are moving into Asian markets. The Norwegian energy company Equinor is developing as a broad energy company, building a material position in renewable energy. Equinor is powering European homes with renewable offshore wind from four offshore wind farms in the United Kingdom and Germany. They are building material offshore wind clusters in the UK, the US North East and in the Baltics, underlining their position as an offshore wind major. 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.

Beyond China, Asian countries and regions with excellent wind conditions including India, Japan, Korea and Taiwan have ambitious plans for offshore wind projects in the GW scale. This opens for substantial business opportunities for Norwegian wind developers; technology suppliers and service providers including maritime operation and base services. The objectives of the seminar are to present the status and road maps for offshore wind
development in China and relevant Asian countries; in a context of Norway-Asia technology cooperation and business development opportunities.
