Energy, Power & Utilities

Taiwan is reforming its electricity market by liberalizing the renewable energy with open access to the power grid. The amendment of the Electricity Act in 2017 allowed power generated from renewable energy facilities to be sold directly to end users under Corporate Power Purchase Agreement (“CPPA”). The Act also paved the road for unbundling of Taipower, the dominant state-owned integrated electricity company. Taipower is expected to launch an electricity trading platform, starting with the Day-Ahead Ancillary Service Market in 2021.

The feed-in-tariff (FiT) scheme has played a crucial role in encouraging the installation of renewable energy generation facilities. Since the Renewable Energy Development Act (“REDA”) became effective in 2009, Taipower has been obliged to procure all electricity generated from eligible renewable energy generation facilities under 20-year power purchase agreement at fixed FiT announced by the Bureau of Energy (“BOE”). In 2019, the amendment of REDA was announced to further declare the island’s commitment in renewable energy. The Act not only reemphasized the 27GW renewable energy target by 2025, but also set the requirement for heavy electricity users to use certain percent of green power.  To cope with the intermittent characteristic of renewable energy, a short-term target of 590MW of energy storage is set by Bureau of Energy.
