Accelerating the Renewable Energy Future in Taiwan
The renewable energy sector in Taiwan is rapidly changing. EPCs, IPPs and financial institutions are increasingly requiring to reduce the uncertainty in resource and energy assessments in the ever-dynamic renewables domain.
Solar energy in Taiwan
Promoting solar is part of the Taiwanese government’s goal of reaching 20% renewable energy generation by 2025, with the 20GW solar target comprising of 3GW and 17GW of rooftop and ground-mounted systems. With the scale of solar getting bigger, there is also an increasing growth in the consideration of energy storage together with renewable assets.
Wind energy in Taiwan
In addition to having one of the best offshore wind resources in the world, the progress of Taiwan's offshore wind development is further accelerated by clear and well-defined government policies and roadmap since the industry’s early days. The recent announcement of the award of offshore projects with estimated total installed capacity of 5.5GW has positioned the country as offshore wind’s next power base.
To achieve optimal cost reduction and meet the project timeline, there needs to be closer collaboration between stakeholders in the Taiwanese offshore wind supply chain. The resulting benefits such as better alignment of incentives, risk sharing and cost reduction are all identified but few concrete actions have yet been delivered.
The event will be split into 2 sessions as follows. Participants can opt to attend session 1, session 2, or both.
13:30 Session 1 - Ensuring sustainable investments throughout the solar project lifecycle
15:00 Networking tea break
15:30 Session 2 - Knowing offshore wind and how to plan for performance
17:00 Event close
