Taiwan is one of the few asian countries that develop offshore wind power. Countries with similar geographical environment to taiwan, such as japan and south korea, have also become a reference for my country's development. Although taiwan has not developed offshore wind power in the past, it has valuable experience in the steel and shipping industry. For example, taiwan international shipbuilding corporation led the maritime fleet and established the "Marine team offshore wind power marine engineering alliance" with 35 companies; china steel corporation integrate domestic manufacturers to form the "Wind team offshore wind power components localization industry alliance" to jointly promote the localization of wind turbine components and invest in underwater basic manufacturing.
It is worth mentioning that taiwan has the only government among all asian countries that allows 100% foreign ownership to develop offshore wind power. Although the japanese government previously offered wholesale rates much higher than taiwan's, it was logo design still unable to attract foreign businessmen to develop like taiwan; offshore wind power development in japan, south korea, and china is mostly handed over to large local power companies and trading companies.
For example, hitachi and mhi vestas are the main companies in japan that invest in the offshore wind power industry; china's offshore wind farms are also handed over to state-owned power companies for development, and most of the wind turbines are independently developed. The taiwan government has a clear position on the development of offshore wind power. With the support of the policy and the addition of a 20-year single purchase contract provided by taipower, it has attracted a large number of foreign investment in taiwan , such as ørsted and singapore's yushan energy ( yushan), canada’s hokuriku power (npi), australia’s macquarie capital, copenhagen infrastructure partners (cip), germany’s dade energy group (wpd) and japan’s jera ), etc.; taiwanese local businessmen include shangwei new energy, sinosteel, taipower and asia cement.
