[Ambassador report] Free Report:Taiwan offshore wind power long-term energy policy report

by Yu Hsuan Huang | 21-11-2019 00:55 Comments 4 Comments recommendations 0 recommendations

Taiwan has held the inauguration ceremony of the wind farm. So far, there are 22 6MW wind turbines with a total capacity of 128MW and an annual power supply of 128,000. The main marine wind power is jointly developed by Woxu Energy, JERA, Macquarie Green Investment Group and Shangwei, and is the first offshore wind power demonstration wind farm in Taiwan. The wind farm consists of two phases. The two 4MW wind turbines in the first phase have been installed in October 2016, and the second phase of 20 wind turbines with a total capacity of 120MW was also installed in October. Because wind power has already achieved results, it will inevitably require longer-term planning to respond to subsequent energy investments.


From the long-term energy public hearing held by the Legislative Yuan Renewable Energy Association last week, we can know that the non-nuclear homes said the 2025 time limit, in fact, it will be fulfilled in a few years. The industry wants to know about the longer-term development of energy planning, because if there is no long-term outlook, the industry will not know how to invest. I hope that the industry can know that the policy ratio is not only 20%, and promises to implement more renewable energy in the future.


What the industry wants to know is how the energy will be planned after 2025. After the public hearing is over, there will be a 1GW and 10GW annual vision plan from 2026 to 2035. This plan is better than before. The 2025 policy has added 5 GW of ideas, which means that Taiwan's future energy industry has development prospects. In the planning of energy policy, we can also use the experience of foreign countries to make the future formulation of energy policy more perfect. Therefore, we will quote the interview of the Japan Energy Agency.


At present, Taiwan's offshore wind power is the third stage of block development. In addition to the existing foreign developers such as Aneng Asia Pacific, CIP and Woxu Energy, the main investment companies have also added German energy company Innogy and Tokyo, Japan. If JSF, a joint venture between Power Group and Central Power Group, and EDF, a French state-owned power company, can invest in offshore wind power as scheduled, the job opportunities and industry values ​​will be greatly developed.


The industry also mentioned that block development hopes to continue the current 27 localization projects, so that the investment of local manufacturers and developers can continue. As for Wo Xu Energy, it is proposed that the British model, that is, the proportion of localized purchases, is the total price, and the localization is carried out through a more flexible approach. After I want to implement the opinions of the industry, talents such as welders, project management, finance and finance, and legal affairs can also have opportunities for job vacancies. So what can we refer to in comparison with Japan?


On April 1 this year, Japan has promulgated the implementation of the sea area utilization law for the development of marine renewable energy power generation facilities, and legalized the coordination among stakeholders for the use of general sea areas. Based on the source of the law, it will be possible to build a system for long-term use of offshore wind power. And the use of floating wind turbines, Taiwan and Japan are not shallow seas, so we can also develop in the direction of small wind turbines, as well as floating wind power, and finally let the air pollution caused by thermal power generation gradually improve.

    Hey Yu Hsuan,
    it's Lisa once again.

    I didn't know that wind power energy works in Taiwan, just merely thought that the environment there might be similar to my country of Korea and since Korea is definitely not those countries that can benefit from the wind power energy enough, thought it might be the same for Taiwan. But obvious it seems not!
    It's great to see that your government is investing in related infrastructures and industries. I hope Korea will be able to find a suitable form of renewable energy so that it can pursue green development.

    Thanks for your report and nice job:)

    Hello Yu Hsuan

    As discussed in last month's topic, transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy is an inevitable movement. The transition can happen in variety of ways, and I think the best method is through combined collaboration between government and industry. Setting the long term goals together is definitely efficient and stable. In that sense, it seems that Taiwan is heading toward desirable blueprints about renewable energy.

    Thank you for the great report.

    Keep up the great work.
