Taiwan has some of the best wind resources in the region and attractive natural geography for installation of offshore wind farms. The political trends, where the Taiwan government focus on development of renewable energy, which should replace 8 GW of existing nuclear power by 2025 creates new opportunities for offshore wind activities. According to the national plans, Taiwan will have 0.5 GW of installed offshore wind capacity by 2020 and 3GW by 2025. These ambitious goals are supported by very attractive FIT comparing with Chaina and Japan.
The first demonstration projects Formosa I and II with Siemens wind turbines were connected online in 2016, and the next projects Fuhai I and II are under construction. At the same time, state-owned utility Taiwan Power (Tiapower) focuses on new offshore projects in cooperation with China Steel Corporation (CSC). But Taiwan needs to cooperate with foreign companies, which can provide knowledge and solutions within the entire value chain, from project development, through turbine supply, construction, installation and maintenance. Danish experience can play a key role in the future development of offshore wind in Taiwan, and Danish companies should explore the new possibilities.
