Australia is a step closer to becoming an offshore wind power, with a landmark new offshore wind announcement touted to bring jobs and economic opportunities. 

Minister for Climate Change and Energy Chris Bowen said six proposed regions for NSW, Victoria, Tasmania and WA that have world-class offshore wind potential. 

The consultation process has opened for the proposed Commonwealth Offshore Wind Zone in the Pacific Ocean, off the coast of the Illawarra region which stretches from Wombarra in the north to Kiama.
