|dc.description.abstract||In order to reach its objective of raising renewable energy to 20% of total energy for power utilities by 2025, Taiwan government is planning to install 5.5GW offshore wind capacity by the timeline scheduled. For which, Taiwan becomes the focus point for global offshore wind investors and developers. Also, the Government expects to develop local offshore wind supply chain for the purpose of entering into Asia Pacific and worldwide market through local content requirements to the developers and the technology they might bring when come to participate in this mega project. With the reference of offshore wind development road map and the supply chain and cluster establishment experiences in Europe, the purpose of this study is to identify the challenges which local suppliers might encounter as they have neither oil and gas industry experiences nor similar learning curve in the past.
The challenges are composed of high cost of investments and labors, lack of offshore wind -related technology, of certification standard and process, lack of installation and transportation vessels and also related skilled labors and engineers. With the challenges identified, this study provides some recommendations to the government which include maintain a sustainable and stable offshore wind development strategy to ensure developers and local supply′s long-term investment plans, to set up a lawful and transparent policy in order to reduce potential arbitration risk, to establish a special fund dedicated to offshore wind development to support technical research and financing-issue in medium-small scale company, also to support the priority local content item such as building specialized installation vessels and transportation vessels which currently need to be leased from the Baltic and European countries at very high cost. This kind of specialized vessels and crew would potentially become leading role of supply chain in the region.||en_US|
