Harnessing wind power to provide communities with renewable energy

Taiwan

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.

Sustainable Development Goals

7. Affordable and Clean Energy

160,000 MWh

generated on average annually for the national grid

8. Decent work and economic growth

49 new jobs

created thanks to the project

13. Climate Action

190,000 tonnes of CO2e

avoided on average each year

The Solution

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.

The Impact

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.
