Victoria sets offshore wind targets of 9GW by 2040

The Victorian Government has set new offshore wind farm targets. Currently there are no offshore wind farms operating in the state, although the Star of the South Project off the Gippsland Coast is well progressed in planning.

The new offshore wind targets:

  • 2032 – target of 2 GW 
  • 2035 – target of 4 GW 
  • 2040 – target of 9 GW 
  • 2050 – potential capacity of 13 GW

There are already 3 offshore wind farms on the drawing boards. The 2.1GW Star of the South is the most advanced offshore wind farm project, with estimated construction from 2025 and completion in 2028.
