Australia; offshore wind zones have been given the green light after the federal Energy Minister announced the location of the first of six sites.

The federal government has declared Australia's first offshore wind zone, giving developers the green light to ramp up planning and consultation for wind farm projects.

Key points:

  • The federal Energy Minister has declared the Gippsland coast to be Australia's first offshore wind zone
  • Offshore wind projects aim to fill the future void left by coal-fired power station closures in the Latrobe Valley
  • A 60-day consultation period with community members will now commence

Federal Energy Minister Chris Bowen announced waters off the Gippsland coast, in Victoria's south-east, would be the first offshore wind zone.
