Offshore wind to become China’s wind power driver
With more than 40GW of offshore projects in the pipeline, offshore wind power is on its way of turning into the main growth point of Chinese wind power. The country’s Fourteenth Five-Year Plan forecasts a rapid growth of offshore wind from 2021 to 2025, as the technology improves and the offshore supply chain matures. This growth is regionally concentrated in the provinces of Fujian, Guangdong, and Jiangsu, which will together install 90% of the project pipeline.
