Offshore wind roadmap for Sri Lanka

The World Bank Group (WBG) launched a new global initiative on offshore wind in March 2019. The offshore wind development program objective is to support the inclusion of offshore wind into the energy sector policies and strategies of emerging market countries and support the preparatory work needed to build a pipeline of bankable projects. The objective of this roadmap is to provide strategic analysis and advice on the role that offshore wind can play in Sri Lanka’s future energy mix, analysis on the key opportunities and challenges, and recommendations on next steps in terms of policy formulation, planning, and developing bankable projects. This report is comprised of main body (chapters 2 to 6), which summarize the key findings and conclusions of this report, as well as presenting the roadmap. Chapters 7 to 15 present more detailed analysis of the themes of this report.
