Offshore Wind

Offshore Wind

RWE is a leading offshore wind developer and operator with more than 20 years of experience and a pipeline spanning five continents.

As of March 2023 we have built and are operating 19 offshore wind farms globally with a total capacity of 3.3GW. We also have many projects under development or construction, including the 1.4GW Sofia Wind Farm in the UK and the licensed 3GW Dogger Bank South project. You can read more about our international offshore projects here.

Australia has close to 34,000 kilometres of coastline. The Global Wind Energy Council states Australia boasts the sixth largest offshore wind technical resource potential in the world, meaning offshore wind will play an important role in Australia’s emerging energy mix. 

Bringing Offshore Wind to Australia | RWE in Australia

Our ambition is to support the Australian Government to achieve their net zero target and to assist State Governments to electrify and decarbonise. Additionally, we understand the importance of clean energy jobs in the regions, and believe our experience of transitioning the work forces from traditional energy to clean energy can be utilised to achieve the ‘just transition’ currently needed in Australia.

Our initial focus for offshore wind in Australia is in Victoria, where the Federal Government has declared the first offshore wind zone off the Gippsland coast, and where the State Government has set targets of at least 2GW of offshore wind by 2032 and 9GW by 2040. The Victorian Government has also announced Australia’s first public offshore wind procurement activity, anticipated to take place in 2025.
