RWE Renewables ranks among the largest global players in power generation from renewable energies with a total installed generation capacity of 9 gigawatts, and further large projects under construction. Our technology portfolio covers onshore and offshore wind, utility-scale photovoltaic (PV) solar power and energy storage. Our approximately 3,500 renewables experts develop, build and operate large renewable energy assets in more than 20 countries in Europe, the Americas and Asia-Pacific.
In line with our growth ambitions, we aim to leverage our global capabilities and technology expertise from our 2.6 gigawatt installed offshore capacity, as well as our local team and partnerships, to develop large offshore wind projects in Japan.
In April 2019, we signed a first cooperation agreement with Kyuden Mirai Energy to jointly develop offshore wind projects in Japan. The cooperation is focused on fixed bottom projects and starts with a study to jointly select a project for development, construction and operations mainly in the Kyushu area. Our ambition is to expand to other regions in Japan through the development of further offshore wind projects in cooperation with our various Japanese partners and stakeholders.
