UNITED STATES: Offshore wind is, at last, firmly on the US renewable-energy agenda, with a number of projects finally looking likely to shift from the drawing board and into the waters. But, America's offshore pioneers are not ready to pop the champagne corks just yet.
JAPAN: The rate of progress in Japan's offshore wind sector has been distinctly sluggish so far, but potential developers have been encouraged by recent government pronouncements.
INDIA India is getting serious about exploiting the offshore wind resources on its southern and western coasts, importing European know-how and technological resources to kickstart its nascent sector.
CHINA: After several years of uncertainty and stagnation, China's offshore wind sector looks set to take off. An immensely ambitious target of installing 30GW of offshore wind by the end of the decade is probably beyond reach, but there seems little doubt that China is gearing up for serious commitment to the sector.
