Taiwan approves EIA for two offshore wind projects totalling 2.2 GW

The Taiwanese government has approved the environmental impact assessment (EIA) for two offshore wind projects totalling 2.2 GW in capacity, located off Taiwan’s western coast. 

Specifically, Taiwan has approved the preliminary EIA of the 1.2 GW Huan Ya offshore wind project, currently being developed by the Taiwanese company Taiya Renewable Energy off Miaoli County. The floating wind project is expected to comprise 71 wind turbines. In addition, Taiwan has approved the EIA of the 1 GW Winds of September floating offshore wind project, currently being developed by the renewable company BlueFloat Energy off the coast of Hsinchu County. 

At the end of 2022, offshore wind represented less than 1% of Taiwan’s installed capacity (with 237 MW), as the island only installed its first offshore wind turbine in 2017. Onshore wind capacity stood at 1.34 GW at end-2022. Currently, Taiwan has nearly 3 GW of wind projects under construction and over 22 GW under development.
