More than 200 industry practitioners with more than 16 companies shared best practices in offshore wind farm Operations and Maintenance (O&M), smart grid and innovative floating offshore wind technology.
A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between Taiwan’s largest shipbuilder and flotation energy company and a British floating wind developer, focusing on collaboration on floating wind technology development in Taiwan.
Through its energy transition policy, Taiwan plans to increase the proportion of renewable energy power generation to 20% by 2025 and become an offshore wind power hub in the Asia region. The three stages of Taiwan’s offshore wind power policy include demonstration, potential, and zonal development. Recently Taiwan officially began Phase 3 of offshore wind development.
With rapid offshore wind expansion and ambitious energy transition, Taiwan has the potential to become a leader in the Asia Pacific region in the offshore wind industry. The UK government is investing in technologies to bring more green energy into the UK grid system. The UK government is committed to sharing this innovation with Taiwan.
30 UK offshore wind companies are already established in Taiwan – a strong sign of confidence in Taiwan’s offshore wind market. The UK has the experience and commercial capabilities to help Taiwan build a robust supply chain of developers, setting the global standard for offshore wind development. Capitalising on new technologies such as floating offshore wind will cement Taiwan as the region’s leading offshore wind market.
