Taiwan Develops Green Parks Through Tech Innovations

To create sustainable green parks, the Technology Industrial Parks in Taiwan have dedicated to promoting energy and water-saving counselling and green electricity construction. In response to the negative impacts of climate change, major global supply chains have successively announced a carbon neutrality target. Suppliers are required to jointly respond as well and must implement environment-related sustainable technological programs.

Through multi-pronged promotions of reducing the greenhouse gas emission, so far, 84.38 million kWh of electricity and 48.9 million tons of water has been saved, and the total accumulative carbon reduction of 500 mt CO2e (carbon dioxide equivalent) has been achieved, which is equal to the carbon absorption of 200 Da-An Forrest Parks in a whole year.

In addition, the high-energy users with the electricity consumption contract capacity of 800 kW or more in the park have reached 1.7% of the annual electricity saving rate, which is better than the regulatory target and has shown concrete results in energy saving and carbon reduction in the parks.

The green wave is bound to drive the enterprises in parks to accelerate their participation in energy saving and carbon reduction. Hence, the Export Processing Zone Administration (EPZA) of the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) specially invites a professional team to consult enterprises to handle energy saving, water saving and material flow cost accounting.

Through directly or indirectly identify effective energy saving and carbon reduction methods, evaluating the costs of improvement and the recovery period, and provide diagnostic analysis reports for the implementation of the improvement. In addition, EPZA synchronously promotes technological innovations for clean production, carbon footprint, and water footprint.

EPZA also assists enterprises to comprehensively review the energy resources consumption and carbon emissions in operation, from which to develop follow-up improvement directions and strategies to enhance the efficiency of energy-saving and carbon reduction.

Moreover, EPZA also jointly promoted green electricity with enterprises in the parks, installed solar panels on the roof in recent years. So far, the number of parallel connections has reached more than 300 million kWh. Combined with the introduction of electric buses, planting and greening, and the promotion of related counselling and certification, the total accumulative carbon reduction is equal to the carbon absorption of 200 Da-An Forrest Parks in a whole year.

As all the resources in the world are limited, the only way to make the industry and ecology sustainable are to make the most effective use of limited resources, saving energy resources and developing renewable energy, and inventing green technologies. EPZA will continue to counsel the enterprises, strengthen energy-saving and carbon reduction and technical personnel training and other services, to create sustainable green parks jointly.

According to an article,  the Taiwanese Government declared that by 2025 it wants 20% of the country’s electricity supply to come from renewable sources – up from approximately 5% at the time. The ambitious target is part of the state’s wider energy transformation plans. To achieve its renewable energy target, the country needs to build approximately 27GW of new renewable electricity capacity, which it aims to do through a combination of offshore wind and solar power.

For the most part, Taiwan has attracted interest in its offshore wind auctions because it has a stable government. Furthermore, Taiwan’s strategic location in East Asia, with proximity to key markets means leading technology firms see the country as a potential hub for the Asian market.

The Taiwanese Government is not just focusing on offshore wind projects to meet its renewable targets but is actually keener to actively expand solar installation to make the most of Taiwan’s abundant seasonal sunshine. However, despite solar being preferable to wind in the typhoon high-risk region, land scarcity on the island could potentially be prohibitive for new solar projects.

In the long run, Taiwan will need more energy storage and gas-fired generation capacity, in particular, to address wind seasonality and solar daytime availability, as well as upgrades to its grid, which are currently planned.
