Offshore Wind Focus to bolster 2023 Australian Wind Industry Summit

With a massive 4.6 GW of new onshore wind farms under construction across Australia and enormous interest and early-stage development activity in offshore wind farms, the energy will be certain to be electric at the upcoming Australian Wind Industry Summit (AWIS) 2023, powered by Goldwind.

Held on Thursday 4 May 2023, at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, AWIS is the flagship event for the sector and those interested in joining the wind of change towards a clean energy future.

In 2023, AWIS will take place under a revitalised twin event format, with separate presentation sessions covering both onshore and offshore wind, respectively, including:

  • state of the market
  • supply chain and logistical challenges
  • addressing environmental and social impacts
  • wind turbine recycling initiatives

Clean Energy Council Chief Executive, Kane Thornton, said that Victoria is particularly well placed to capitalise on an increased role for wind power generation. The state has committed to delivering new minimum targets of 2 GW of offshore wind by 2032, then 4 GW by 2035 and 9 GW by 2040. Offshore wind alone will power 1.5 million homes in a decade's time.

"Victoria has been the leading state for wind power generation for some time and continues to lead the way, accounting for around a third of Australia's wind generation," Thornton said.

According to the Australian Energy Market Operator, as much as 20 GW of wind generation capacity will be added by 2030, with a considerable share of this capacity coming from Australia's home of wind power in Victoria.

"At scale, the capability and complexity of wind power as it develops across Australia, both onshore and soon, offshore, is unlike anything we've seen before," Thornton continued.

"The discussion among attendees at AWIS, whether on sea or land, reflects this new horizon for our renewable energy industry."

AWIS 2023 is also supported by ACEN Australia, Squadron Energy and Vestas.
