Harnessing wind power to provide communities with renewable energy
Power generation in Taiwan is fossil-fuel dominated, despite the country's limited fossil fuel resources. Given Taiwan's dependence towards fuel import (98% of fuel demand is imported), a switch to more renewable energy sources is an important environmental and economic development for Taiwan.

This project comprises of 42 Enercon wind turbines with total installed capacity of 92.4 MW. At full capacity, these grouped wind farms can generate approximately 250,866 MWh of clean energy a year, which is delivered to the state-owned power grid, Taipower Grid. This aids in reducing Taiwan's dependence on carbon-intensive fossil fuel energy generation methods.
By providing a viable clean energy alternative to fossil fuel energy, this project addresses climate change by reducing the level of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. This contributes to the development of the wind energy sector in Taiwan, with a long term benefit for the clean energy transition in Asia. Beyond environmental benefits, this project creates local employment and capacity building as the employees are trained by German wind turbine manufacturer Enercon on maintenance, safety and operational issues.
