(The Taipei Times)
The association is waiting for the government to announce rules on how it would award projects and set local content requirements
Offshore wind farm developers and the Ministry of Economic Affairs yesterday expressed hope that the establishment of a new industry group would facilitate communication between the fledgling industry and the government.
The launch of the Taiwan Offshore Wind Industry Association (TOWIA), which comprises eight major offshore wind farm developers with projects in Taiwan, comes just weeks ahead of a highly anticipated announcement of the “rules of the game” for the third phase of the nation’s wind farm development plan, dubbed “zonal development.”
Developers have since March 2019 been waiting for the announcement of the rules on zonal development, which would see 1 gigawatt’s worth of projects released every year for 10 years.
