Enhancing Taiwan's sustainable energy supply with wind power
This wind farm installs 19 wind turbines, tapping into the endless power of the wind to generate approximately 142,000 MWh of clean electricity per year. By replacing electricity otherwise generated using coal and natural gas, this project cuts carbon emissions and accelerates the transition to a low-carbon future!
Despite the privilege of a long and windy coastline, Taiwan is still heavily reliant on fossil fuels, meeting over 75% of the country's energy needs. Shifting towards more sustainable energy sources is vital to the country's national security, economic development and environmental preservation.
The Guanyin wind farm supplies clean renewable energy whilst avoiding negative environmental and health impacts. It reduces Taiwan's dependence on fossil fuel imports, strengthens its economic sustainability and contributes to the development of the wind sector in Taiwan.
In addition to cutting carbon emissions, this project supports several activities to protect nature, 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 owner organises employee training on technical, environmental/safety code, and operational/maintenance procedures.
