The licence will allow OEPL to undertake exploration in Commonwealth waters about eight to 13 kilometres off the Gippsland coast in Victoria. This exploration will determine if Australia can build offshore wind farms to provide the country with significant new investment and employment possibilities while also contributing to the stability of the grid and lowering power prices.

Through this licence, OEPL will be allowed to undertake activities to assess wind resources and sea bed conditions understand whether an offshore farm is technically feasible.

OEPL has not been given any rights to develop or operate an offshore wind farm under this licence. The licence requires OEPL to undertake extensive consultation with the community and industry before undertaking any activities.
