Highlights

  • Taiwan's energy policy considers a nuclear phase-out by 2025 and a 20% renewable share in its capacity mix by 2025.
  • The 1.2 GW onshore wind objective for 2020 was missed as it reached 800 MW.
  • Taiwan's energy sector is dominated by two national companies, Taipower and CPC.
  • Renewables (including hydro) accounted for 20% of the power mix in 2020.
  • Coal imports are stable since 2011.
  • Oil and gas prices are following international prices. Electricity prices have remained stable since 2016.
  • Oil and coal are still the main fuels consumed.
  • Total energy consumption per capita is 3 times higher than the Asian average.
  • Taiwan targets 20 GW of solar by 2025 and over 15 GW of offshore wind by 2035.
  • A new referendum on the activation of mothballed 2.6 GW Lungmen nuclear power plant will be held in August 2021.

Abstract

  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Bureau of Energy (BOE) of the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) is in charge of the energy sector.

  • Energy Companies

    Electricity:

    Taiwan Power Company (Taipower) is the national electricity company (96.92% state owned).

  • Energy Supply

    Resources:

    Taiwan's fossil resources are very limited.

  • Energy Prices

    Electricity:

    Electricity prices have remained roughly stable since 2016. They were US$8.2c/kWh and US$8.9c/kWh, respectively, for the industrial and household sectors in 2019. Since 2014, the industrial-household electricity price differential has narrowed, from almost 20% less for industry in 2010 to just 8% in 2019.

  • Energy Consumption

    The country's total consumption per capita reached 4.5 toe in 2020, which is three times higher than the Asian average (1.4 toe in 2019). Electricity consumption per capita is also 3 times higher than the regional average, at around 10 750 kWh (2020). However, the total energy intensity has been decreasing rapidly and regularly since 2010 (-2.3%/year).

  • Issues & Prospects

    Gas:

    MOEA plans to increase the deployment of LNG with new LNG terminals.

List of Tables

In the Taiwan energy market report you will find the following tables:

  • Economic Indicators: Annual historical data including population, GDP growth, imports and exports, inflation rate, energy security and efficiency indicators, CO2 emissions.
  • Supply Indicators: Historical data including oil and gas reserves, electric and refining capacity, energy production, power production and external trade. All are detailed by energy source.
  • Demand Indicators: Historical data including consumption per inhabitant, consumption trends, total consumption by energy source, final consumption by energy source and sector, and electricity consumption by sector.
  • Energy Balances: Single table displaying the overall energy industry balance per annum, also graphically displayed by energy sub-segment.

Data (Excel Sheet)

The Taiwan energy market data since 1990 and up to 2020 is included in the Excel file accompanying the Taiwan country report.
It showcases the historical evolution, allowing users to easily work with the data.

Key Data included in the excelsheet:

  • Economic indicators: Annual historical economic indicators, energy security, energy efficiency and CO2 emissions.
  • Supply indicators: Annual historical reserves, capacity, production and external trade (imports(+) exports(-) balance).
  • Demand indicators: Annual historical consumption per capita, consumption trends, total consumption, final consumption (per energy and per sector) and electricity consumption total and per sector.
  • Energy Balance: total and per energy.
  • Taiwan Energy Prices: In addition to the analysis provided on the report we also provided a data set which includes historical details on the Taiwan energy prices for the follow items: price of premium gasoline (taxes incl.), price of diesel (taxes incl.), price of electricity in industry (taxes incl.), price of electricity for households (taxes incl.), price of natural gas in industry (taxes incl.), prices of natural gas for households (taxes incl.), spot price of Brent and CO2 emissions (from fuel combustion).
