Bureau of Energy, MOEA held a consultation meeting with all stakeholders on the developer selection mechanism for Phase 3 (Zonal Development) of offshore wind on 11th May. In response to domestic demands for green power and the development of local supply chain, the annual capacity to be allocated between 2026 and 2035 is increased from 1 GW to 1.5 GW, and the developers will be selected through a two-stage process, i.e., capability review and bidding process. In addition to continuing the implemented key development items from the previous stage, the IRP (Industrial Relevance Program) policy will also introduce both flexible and optional mechanisms to respond to the expectation of the stakeholders and to drive the industrial development. MOEA will take relevant policy suggestions from the concerning parties and the participants into consideration, and will announce relevant promotion measures once a consensus is reached.

I. Annual capacity between 2026 to 2035 will be increased from 1 GW to 1.5 GW in response to domestic demands for green power and the development of local supply chain
(I)The draft scheme plans to raise the annual capacity from 1 GW to 1.5 GW between 2026 and 2035, reaching a total capacity of 15 GW. The allocation from 2026 to 2031 will be conducted annually, and the first one will start in Q2 2022.
(II)Developers from 2026 to 2031 will be selected through a two-stage process. Stage 1 is capability review, which focuses on technical capability and financial capacity as well as IRP. Stage 2 is the bidding process. Applicants, who pass Stage 1, will be ranked according to their bidding prices, and the bid will be awarded to the developer with the lowest price. In the case of same bidding price, the one with higher score of its additional industrial relevance plan will prevail.

II. Flexible and optional mechanisms are introduced to IRP in response to the expectation of the stakeholders
(I)The draft scheme plans to continue with the implemented key development items from the previous stage, where relevant industries have been investing in setting up factories and establishing local technology capabilities.
(II)Flexible mechanisms are introduced to the draft scheme with "item flexibility" and "quantity flexibility;" collaboration between industries is also encouraged, especially on those with high potential value, such as components of wind turbine systems, engineering design service, etc.

III. MOEA will keep collecting opinions to forge consensus before announcing relevant promotion measures
(I)The consultation meeting provided participants with Live URL and online Q&A interface to collect opinions from all stakeholders. MOEA will take all relevant policy suggestions into consideration, and will announce relevant promotion measures once a consensus is reached.
(II)The slides of the meeting are available on the "Offshore Wind Zonal Development Consultation Meeting" corner of the BOE website. (https://www.moeaboe.gov.tw/ECW/populace/news/Board.aspx?kind=3&sub_kind=6&menu_id=8682&news_id=19817)

MOEA plans for the policies of Offshore Wind Zonal Development mainly in consideration of supporting the domestic demand of green electricity and sustainable development of the local supply chain, as well as other diverse aspects, such as social environment and ecology. Drawing from the experiences from Phase 1 (DIP) and Phase 2 (ZAP), MOEA will continue to promote Phase 3 (ZD) with steadiness.
