The Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) has completed the review of "R.O.C. 2022 Renewable Energy Feed-in Tariffs (FIT) and Calculation Formulas" and made the public announcement on January 28. Compared to the draft, only the FIT rates, number of phases, and additional rates for grid enhancement and EHV installation of solar PV, as well as the rate of small hydropower under 2 MW, have been adjusted, and all other rates remain the same as the draft.

The key points of the officially announced 2022 Feed-in Tariffs (FIT) Rates for Renewable Energy Electric Power are as follows:

1. Solar PV:
(1) The 2022 FIT rates have been restored to two phases in a year; based on capacity size and category, the FIT rates will be between 3.8680 to 5.8952 TWD/kWh.
(2) Considering the domestic situation of the pandemic, the FIT rates of roof-top systems will not be lowered. Also, additional tariff rates have been formulated for costs and expenses of grid enhancement, and construction fees of EHV booster station, cables, and grid connection, in accordance with Taipower's regulations on charges and fees, in aim to reflect grid-connection costs and differences of different sites.

2. Small Hydro: The FIT for capacity sizes under 2 MW is further increased to 4.1529 TWD/kWh compared to the draft; the FIT for those above 2MW remains the same as the draft at 2.8599 TWD/kWh.

3. Geothermal: Same as the draft, the FIT rates have been divided into different categories based on capacity size. A category with capacity sizes under 2MW has been added, with the FIT rate set at 5.7736 TWD/kW. As for capacity sizes above 2MW, the FIT rate remains the same as the draft at 5.1956 TWD/kWh.

4. Biomass: Same as the draft, the FIT of non-anaerobic digestion facilities is 2.8066 TWD/kWh, whereas the rate of biomass energy with anaerobic digestion facilities is 5.1842 TWD/kWh.

5. Waste to Energy (WtE): Same as the draft, the "agricultural waste" category has a FIT rate of 5.1407 TWD/kWh; the rate of general waste and general industrial waste is 3.9482 TWD/kWh.

6. Marine Energy: Same as the draft, the FIT rate of marine energy is set at 7.3200 TWD/kWh.

7. Other incentive and reward mechanisms: Same as the draft, which include applicable articles governing the rates of newly added geothermal and small hydro profit-sharing mechanism for indigenous people, markup mechanism of the inclusion of Taitung in the solar PV region, and integration of solar PV and storage systems; other 2021 incentive and reward mechanisms, such as outlying island markup tariff, phased tariffs, markup tariff for high-efficiency solar PV modules, and regional markup tariff, will all be retained.

The MOEA specially stresses that the 2021 solar PV root-top system FIT rates included grid-connection fee, which is now specified as a related fee in the 2022 FIT rates, and will be calculated as an additional tariff. However, to ensure that the increments of the FIT rates correspond with the increments of Taipower's roof-top system grid-connection fee, the 2022 FIT rates for roof-top systems in the 20-100 kW category have been further divided into two groups: "without grid-connection fee" and "with grid-connection fee" to ensure clarification. Moreover, considering the existing policy that encourages small-size roof-top systems, the maximum first phase rates of categories 1-20 kW and 20-100 kW with grid-connection fee will be adjusted to be the same as the 2021 Q4 rates as an incentive. In summary, combining the maximum rates of 2022 with the additional grid-connection fee, the 2022 solar PV phase 1 FIT rates in all categories will be 0.3% lower than 2021 Q4 on average, which is a slight adjustment.

As for small hydro under 2 MW, the annual sales parameter has been appropriately adjusted to reflect the influences of dry spells in recent years on power generation, and consequently, the FIT rate is increased; other than the aforementioned, all other contents remain the same as the draft, where all 2021 incentive and reward mechanisms have been retained, hoping to further popularize renewable energy installation.

Finally, the MOEA points out that all the opinions and information gathered after the announcement of the draft and during hearings were thoroughly discussed at the third review committee meeting, where consensus was forged and resolutions made. All related procedures were conducted in accordance with the principles of fairness, justice, transparency, and prudence, and considerations were given to factors such as Taiwan's development environment, promotion goals, and development trends in renewable energy technology to ultimately establish FIT rates suitable for the development of Taiwan. The administration will continue to view all relevant issues with caution to establish a good foundation for the development of our nation's renewable energy industry.
