Taiwan Offshore Wind Energy Summit
The offshore wind energy resources along Taiwanese coast is considered excellent. With 16 best offshore wind sites in the world and more than 6,000MW potential capacity at water depths of less than 50m, Taiwan is now considered as one of the top destinations for offshore wind energy deployment. Based on this advantage, Taiwanese government announces an extensive plan to speed up the offshore wind farm development. Beginning with 3 demonstrative projects in 2015, offshore wind installation is booming up yearly and plans to reach 5,500 MW by 2025. To meet these goals, the Taiwan Renewable Energy Development Act” puts forward a comprehensive renewable energy policy framework and institutionalizes a number of policies for Taiwan’s offshore wind development, including the establishment of a 20-year Feed-in Tariff, zonal development, the “Thousand Wind Turbine Project”, and the “Offshore Demonstration Incentive Program”.
However, with no indigenous value chain in offshore wind sector, obstacles appear when pushing forward the offshore wind development. In this regard, the cooperation between local and international is a must. Taiwanese firms need to cooperate with foreign firms that can provide products and solutions for the entire span of offshore wind farm development from turbine supply, financing and investment, construction/installation to maintenance and optimization to minimize the supply chain gaps.
For TOWES 2018, we are dedicated to build a networking and match-making platform for all concerned industrial players to share knowledge and to expand business contacts in this emerging market. What TOWES 2018 can provide is not only the topical sessions to deeply understand the market intelligence, but also to get connected with key project developers and potential technology partners in Taiwan.
We look forward to welcoming you to Taipei this May!
