Taiwan’s RE capacity has risen 7-fold since 2016

The share of renewables in its power generation mix is at around 10%.

The renewable energy of Taiwan increased seven times to reach 13.9 gigawatts (GW) in August 2023 from 1.9 GW in 2016, the Ministry of Economic Affairs said, noting barriers in the development such as issues on lands, feeders, and processes.

In a statement, the ministry said the development raises its renewable power generation to 27.5 billion kilowatt hours, bringing the sector’s share in the energy mix to around 10%.

The government said it resolved the deployment issues through diverse approaches which included the use of unfavourable agricultural areas and aquavoltaics for the solar segment.

“Taiwan will show more proactivity in the development of advanced energy, including geothermal energy, ocean energy, biomass energy, and hydrogen energy, and use renewable energy as the main driving force of its energy transition and net zero transition,” the ministry said.

It added that joint efforts between the public and private sectors will drive the market’s energy transition.
