To facilitate the government’s Phase 3 Offshore Wind Zonal Development Plan and local content policy, SRE upgraded the Taiwan Team with a more expansive and prospective mission. Taiwan Team 2.0, formed in September 2022, is a partnership between six major supply chains (electrical equipment, underwater foundations, WTG components, vessels and maritime construction, ports, and engineering/design) and over 30 benchmark suppliers, banks, and insurance agencies. All the members are fully committed to the Formosa 4 project, building industry clusters, and achieving the capability for Taiwan to independently develop offshore wind. In the future, Taiwan’s experience and technology can be exported internationally and used in the APAC offshore wind market. In December 2022, the MOEA announced the bidding result of the Phase 3 Offshore Wind Zonal Development Plan, and Formosa 4 received approval for 495 MW of installed capacity. As the project officially enters the construction stage, the team will focus on equity and organizational adjustment to manage the development of the project.
The public expects the wind farm industry to become a pillar of Taiwan’s economy and SRE understands this. Thus, SRE calls on talented green-collar professionals to contribute to Taiwan’s zero-emission goal and the development of sustainable renewable energy in the region.
