The Taiwan offshore wind industry

Taiwan’s offshore location and geographic environment make it one of the best locations for offshore wind in Asia. Taiwan’s west coast provides a Goldilocks zone for offshore wind. Wind speeds in the Formosa Straits to the West reach an average of over 11 metres per second, almost twice that of neighbouring Hong Kong. The Taiwanese Government has set ambitious and progressive goals for renewable energy to provide 20% of the energy supply by 2025, by replacing nuclear with 5.5GW of new offshore wind installations. Following the completion of the pilot project, Formosa 1 (phase 1) in 2017, there are currently 69 offshore wind projects, attracting investment from major offshore wind developers along the west coast (4C Offshore).
