GWEC reveals details about APAC Wind Energy Summit 2024 in South Korea

By Editor


Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) said Action in APAC: Leading the Global Race to 3xRenewables will be the theme for the APAC Wind Energy Summit 2024 in South Korea.

This year, GWEC is partnering with the Korea Wind Energy Industry Association (KWEIA) to organise the APAC Wind Energy Summit. The three-day event will be held in Incheon, South Korea, from 26 to 28 November at Songdo ConvensiA.

GWEC has also revealed that Corio Generation and Equinor will be the event ambassadors for the conference. The two companies will help shape an agenda that delivers laser-focused discussions that unlock and accelerate the development of wind energy in the region.

Stewart Mullin, Chief Operating Officer, GWEC said: “This year’s APAC Wind Energy Summit is focused on action and leadership, so GWEC is honoured to welcome Corio Generation and Equinor as Event Ambassadors to help ensure both themes are at the heart of the Summit.”

“Both companies are committed to leading the way in the energy transition, and ensuring the APAC region is at the heart of it. GWEC will collaborate with them and draw on their industry expertise to shape an impactful conference programme that drives action in wind power deployment in Asia Pacific.”

Woojin Choi, Head of South Korea, Corio Generation said: “It is a significant milestone for the Korean offshore wind industry to host such an event at a time when offshore wind is being recognised as a golden key in South Korea’s journey towards decarbonisation.”

Ingunn Svegarden, President, Equinor Renewables APAC: “With large electricity markets, high decarbonization ambitions, long coastlines and strong supply chains, the APAC region is a very promising place for our industry, and we are pursuing opportunities across several markets to develop this emerging industry together with local partners.”

The APAC region has the world’s largest global wind market share (71 percent) and delivered 15 percent growth on 2022’s results, according to GWEC’s Global Wind Report 2024.

More than 120 countries committed at COP28 to triple renewable capacity by 2030. The APAC Wind Energy Summit is a key forum for making the 3x target a reality by driving action across APAC and ensuring the region leads the way in wind energy deployment.

The APAC Wind Energy Summit will convene industry leaders, policymakers, and institutions to address the challenges faced by wind power development, particularly in the region’s supply chain crunch and market design.

Corio Generation is a specialist offshore wind business harnessing renewable energy worldwide. It has one of the world’s largest offshore wind project pipelines, with more than 30 GW in development across Europe, Asia-Pacific and the Americas.

Equinor is a world-leading offshore operator and an international pioneer in renewables and low-carbon solutions. In APAC, it is pursuing business opportunities in offshore wind development in South Korea, Japan, Vietnam, and Australia.
