In order to utilize the achieved strategic advantages of offshore wind development, BOE plans to release 10 GW between 2026 and 2035 through Zonal Development. BOE held a consultation meeting on 19th June to collect feedbacks from all stakeholders, and the important opinions provided by participants will be taken into consideration. The BOE will keep consulting stakeholders and announce the scheme after a consensus is forged.

To promote offshore wind power and clean energy, develop domestic industries, and facilitate green economy and job opportunities, MOEA plans to promote offshore wind power through the three-phase strategy that comprises Demonstration Incentive Program (DIP), Zone Application for Planning (ZAP), and Zonal Development (ZD). Preliminary achievements of DIP and ZAP have attracted numerous developers and suppliers to invest and establish factories in Taiwan.

I. Active participation of developers, system providers and domestic suppliers
More than 40 companies attended this event, including international and domestic developers, system providers and domestic suppliers. All participants actively joined the discussion and demonstrated a high level of interests in topics of capacity allocation, review process and industrial relevance. They provided various suggestions to BOE and IDB for reference of policy-making.

II. Zonal Development to release 1 GW of capacity each year
(I)The draft scheme plans to release 1 GW annually between 2026 and 2035, reaching a total capacity of 10 GW. The allocation for 2026 to 2030 will be conducted first, and areas with depth below 50 meters will be prioritized.
(II)The allocation for 2026 to 2030 will be determined through a two-step process. Step 1 is capability review, which focuses on technical and financial capabilities as well as commitment to the domestic industry. Step 2 is the bidding process. Applicants who pass Step 1 will be ranked according to their bidding prices, and the bid will be awarded to the developer with the lowest price.
(III)The allocation for 2026 to 2030 will be conducted in stages starting in Q2 2021, and will be completed in 3 years.

III. Continue collecting opinions to forge consensus
(I)The slides of the meeting can be downloaded from BOE website, and post meeting opinions or suggestions are welcome and will be taken into consideration.
(II)The legal works of the scheme announcement will be initiated after a consensus is forged.

Continuing the experience of DIP and ZAP, MOEA will promote offshore wind through the three-phase strategy. It is estimated that the targeted 5.7 GW by 2025 will stimulate NTD 1 trillion of investment and over 20,000 job opportunities. The corresponding annual carbon reduction is around 12 million tons, equivalent to 30,000 Daan Forest Park. This will significantly contribute to policy visions such as energy security, innovative green economy, and environmental sustainability.
