    The Seto Inland Sea is an appropriate place for offshore wind power generation due to the features of its vast shallow waters, numerous islands, calm waves and so on. In this study, offshore wind power potential in the Seto Inland Sea is estimated based on the wind prediction data of LAWEPS, and most appropriate sea areas for offshore wind power generation are extracted considering the constrained conditions such as wind speed, water depth, national parks and ship lanes. In addition, offshore wind power potentials are estimated around several industrial complexes developed at the coastal areas in the Seto Inland Sea considering the possibility of the combination between wind power generation and the industrial complexes.
