Japan’s government plans to resume public auctions for offshore wind power projects by the end of this year, after revising rules to draw a wider range of bidders and encourage faster development of new infrastructure.

The resumption follows the abrupt suspension of an auction in March for an offshore wind farm in Happo-Noshiro in Akita Prefecture. Industry sources say that suspension came amid criticism from businesses about the lack of clarity around the bid process.
