Renewable energy, such as wind and photovoltaic power generation, is an attractive energy source to help solve global environmental issues surrounding the effects of greenhouse gases. Wind power ranks the largest among all renewable energy sources and offers the highest global market opportunity. In this chapter, the status and potential of wind power energy in Japan are described for onshore, fixed offshore, and floating offshore wind power. We discuss roadmaps for increased wind power penetration in Japan using technical countermeasures.
