Ministry of Economic Affairs projects that the proportion of the power generation from the renewables will account for 20 % by 2025.With the demand for approximately 5.5 GW offshore wind capacity in the next 10 years, which attracts more foreign resources to invest in Taiwan market in terms of technology, workforce and finance, collaborating with Taiwan to realize industry localization by establishing offshore wind supply chain. After offshore turbines survive the trial of harsh environment of Taiwan, we can penetrate Asia market to gain more business opportunities in the future.

The 5.7 GW target by 2025 is estimated to stimulate NT$962.5 billion (US$32 billion) of investment, to create approximately 20 thousand job opportunities, to generate 20 TWh of electricity and reduce 10.5 million tons of carbon emission every year. This will reach the target of 20 % share of renewable electricity, as well as to realize the vision of nuclear-free homeland.
