Global experience, local expertise
Ørsted plays a key role in driving offshore wind development in Taiwan. Our large-scale offshore wind farms do more than mitigate climate change. They’re also making our domestic energy infrastructure stronger and more robust – and they’re growing the national economy.
Globally, we’re leaders in offshore wind with a 25 % market share. We’ve currently built enough offshore wind to power 9.5 million people, and by 2025, our ambition is to power 30 million people.
In Taiwan, we were the first and only renewable energy company to establish their APAC hub in Taipei. From day one, we have been pioneering offshore wind throughout the entire wind farm lifecycle, building a comprehensive value chain and drive industry chances to provide benefits for local communities.
Together with our joint venture partners, we’ve delivered Taiwan’s first commercial-scale demonstration offshore wind farm – 128 MW Formosa 1 (35% stake) in 2019. In 2018, we were awarded 1.82 GW of installed capacity for Greater Changhua offshore wind projects off the coast of Changhua. We are also developing more than 5.6 GW offshore wind projects in the Zonal Development Phase to contribute significantly to Taiwan’s energy transition goal and the growing needs for clean energy by companies in Taiwan.
On a local level, our renewable energy solutions are having a long-term positive impact on local communities and suppliers as we pave the way for a secure and reliable future for domestic energy in Taiwan.
