Taiwan is aiming for net carbon neutrality by 2050 and targeting the power system for decarbonization. Promotion of solar and offshore wind power and efficiency will be “decisive” in achieving the “net-zero transition” since the sector accounted for 56.4% of total carbon emissions in 2020, Deputy Economic Minister Tseng Wen-sheng told a briefing last week. Officials tell Energy Intelligence that the cabinet will release a draft “net-zero pathway” by Jun. 30. Solar capacity reached 5.82 GW last year and is aiming for 20 GW in 2025. Wind power, mostly offshore, is expected to expand from just over 700 MW in 2018 to 6.8 GW in 2025 and 15.6 GW by 2035, according to current plans (NE Mar.11'21).
