Following the rapid development in the last years, particularly during the "11th 5-Year Plan", China has become the world's biggest market for wind energy. The focus will stay on "large-scale development" and a "decentralized multipoint approach” in order to further increase investments in offshore wind energy, which will play a more crucial role as energy source in economic growth in China. In June 2010, the first offshore wind power project in Asia, the "Shanghai Donghai Bridge Wind Farm Project", entered full operation with 3 MW and 34 wind turbines.
China's current installed capacity of offshore wind energy ranks sixth in the world; however, the potential of offshore wind energy in China is three times higher than that of onshore wind power. According to statistics, the provinces of Guangdong, Shandong and Jiangsu are the richest regions in terms of offshore resources. According to official plans, by the year 2020 China's offshore wind energy production will increase to 30 GW and some coastal provinces are already drawing up plans to increase grid integration. Pike Research has calculated that by 2017 China’s power generation capacity could reach 11.7 GW from offshore wind power and a yearly growth rate of 70%; China would become the second largest market in the world for offshore wind energy.
In light of these developments, AHK Shanghai will organize the "German Pavilion" at Offshore Wind China 2013 in cooperation with Messe Hamburg. After the successful installations of the trade fair in recent years, it is expected that the number of exhibitors and visitors as well as integrated forums and match-making events will again reach new heights.
Asia's largest and the world's second largest offshore wind power exhibition’s highlight will again be the Offshore Wind China 2013 Conference. High-ranking leaders and representatives of the world's top wind energy enterprises and industry experts will present at the conference and discuss about China’s and the world's future development in offshore energy.
