The Global Offshore Wind Alliance (GOWA) has welcomed the State of Victoria as its first sub-national member. Australia represents the second-biggest offshore wind pipeline in the Asia-Pacific region, behind only China, with 50 GW planned.
The State of Victoria has been clear with its ambitions targets of at least 2 GW by 2032, a total of 4 GW by 2035, and reaching 9 GW of offshore capacity by 2040. The Global Offshore Wind Alliance (GOWA) was founded by Denmark, IRENA, and GWEC with the ambition to create a global driving force for the uptake of offshore wind through political mobilisation and the creation of a global community of practice. The aim of GOWA is to contribute to achieving a total global offshore wind capacity of at least 380 GW by 2030, with 35 GW on average each year across the 2020s and a minimum of 70 GW each year from 2030.
