EDF Renewables signs contract to develop a 400 MW wind project in Taiwan

EDF Renewables, a subsidiary of France’s EDF Group, has signed an Administrative Contract with Taiya Renewable to develop the Huanyang Offshore Wind Farm, located offshore Changhua County in Taiwan. The 400 MW offshore wind project marks EDF Renewables’ (80.1%) first offshore wind project in Taiwan, where the wind farm should occupy 53 km2 with fixed-bottom foundations, to generate 1.6 TWh/year at a depth varying between 15 m and 45 m. The project was awarded in the Round 3-1 Offshore Wind Zonal Development in December 2022, and is expected to be connected to the national grid in 2027.

Taiwan’s energy policy considers a nuclear phase-out by 2025 and a 20% renewable share in its capacity mix by 2025, targeting to develop 20 GW of solar by 2025 and over 15 GW of offshore wind by 2035.
