Within the APAC region Taiwan is a frontrunner in view of the transition towards renewable energy, having released in 2022 its “pathway to net zero emissions by 2050”. This pathway includes Taiwan plans on introducing 1.5GW of offshore wind capacity per year between 2026 and 2035. Whilst speaking, the auctions (also called round 3 auctions) for these capacities are ongoing. Floating wind will make its entry as well, seen the Bureau of Energy has promoted developers to submit projects including floating technology for the round 3 auctions.
Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) technology provides answers to challenges that wind farms are experiencing in view of protecting their critical infrastructure. Continuously monitoring these assets to proactively tackle potential risks, that’s the future we envision for the offshore wind industry.
