Harnessing Coastal Wind Power for Taiwan

The Context

Despite the privilege of a long and windy coastline, Taiwan is still heavily reliant on fossil fuels, which comprise over 75% of the country's total installed electricity capacity. Shifting towards more sustainable energy sources is vital to the country's national security, economic development and environmental preservation.

The Project

This pioneering wind project is harnessing Taiwan's abundant wind energy along the coasts close to Changbin and Taichung. The wind farms consist of 62 wind turbines, generating over 480,000 MWh of clean electricity and annual emission reductions over 320,000 tonnes of CO2 e.

The Benefits

In addition to generating positive impacts on the global climate, this project is engaged in several nature preserving activities such as regular cleaning of beaches from waste and debris, and guided tours to raise awareness of climate change, pollution and other environmental issues. The project has, so far, also planted over 2,400 m2 of trees.
