Siemens Vows to Turn Taiwan into Offshore Wind Hub


TAIPEI, Taiwan -- Siemens Taiwan President and CEO Erdal Elver vowed Wednesday to establish Taiwan as a regional offshore wind power hub.

At a press event, the company reiterated its mission to use its technologies in offshore wind power, gas-fired power generation and energy efficiency via digitalization to help establish a sustainable energy future for Taiwan.

President Tsai Ing-wen recently announced the latest energy mix plan for Taiwan in 2015 - 20 percent renewable, 50 percent natural gas and 30 percent coal-fired power. Siemens Taiwan President and CEO Erdal Elver, Deputy Director General of German Institute Taipei Sabrina Schmidt-Koschella and Taiwan Institute for Sustainable Energy Dr. Eugene Chien all welcome the ambitious plan.

They agree that transforming the energy sector in Taiwan will not only help fulfill Taiwan's responsibility in reducing its greenhouse gas emissions, but also help establish a sustainable future for Taiwan. The three leaders jointly stressed on the importance of bringing policies, societies and technologies together as a comprehensive approach will win the battle against global warming and to realize Taiwan's energy transformation.

From the technology perspective, Elver has specified three key levers for Taiwan's sustainable energy future: offshore wind energy, gas-fired power generation and energy efficiency in buildings, energy grids and mobility through Digitalization. Siemens is committed in bringing in proven technologies and total solutions to Taiwan. Taking the development of offshore wind power as an example, Siemens will provide products suited for the climatic conditions in Taiwan and the rest of APAC. Siemens will also establish in Taiwan the hub for offshore wind power activities in the APAC region.

As pointed out by Erdal Elver, "Speeding up and scaling up offshore wind power development in Taiwan is certainly important; but accelerating the development and deployment of gas-fired power generation and enhancing the energy efficiency in buildings, grids and mobility are equally important. In the foreseeable future, fossil power generation will remain as a stable base load of electricity supply.

Within the fossil power sector, gas-fired power generation is cleaner than its coal-fired counterpart and can serve as the backbone of a reliable energy supply. And technologies for increasing energy efficiency are already available today. They only need to be deployed! Digitalization will further boost the implementation of energy efficiency measures in buildings, mobility and grid management."

The 22nd session of the Conference of the Parties (COP22) of the U.N. Framework Convention to Climate Change focused on the implementation of Paris Agreement. …
