2 priorities of the Australian Offshore Wind Taskforce

It recognises the need for greater collaboration between the industry and government.

The Australian Offshore Wind Taskforce identified the need for a clear structure and implementation pathway for a national coordination body, and exploring a national offshore wind target or strengthening and supporting the delivery of generation infrastructure as key priorities.

In a statement, the Clean Energy Council (CEC) said the taskforce, which held its first in-person meeting in Melbourne, was created due to the industry’s need for a “coordinated and collaborative approach” for offshore wind opportunities for Australia.

“Through greater coordination and collaboration between industry and government, we can increase investor confidence, boost long-term employment, strengthen supply chains, reduce environmental impacts and empower communities,” said CEC Director of Offshore Wind Morgan Rossiter. 

“This will reduce the risks of costs and delays, and increase the share of clean, reliable and affordable offshore electricity being delivered into our grid, sooner,” he added.

The taskforce, led by CEC, is composed of senior representatives from state and federal governments, offshore wind developers in Australia, the Offshore Infrastructure Regulator, the National Offshore Petroleum Titles Administrator and the Australian Energy Infrastructure Commissioner.
