JERA’s plans took a leap by completing its first commercial offshore wind farm in Taiwan

JERA’s plans took a leap by completing its first commercial offshore wind farm in Taiwan

As a step to develop Asia’s green-energy market, Japan’s prominent power provider completed its first commercial offshore wind farm in Taiwan. JERA is a joint venture between Chubu Electric Power and Tokyo Electric Power Co. Holdings; both the companies jointly own almost 32.5% of the wind farm in the northwestern part of Taiwan. The operations are all set to begin by the end of 2019, and a power leader from Denmark called the Orsted has also invested in the project that will produce 130 megawatts of energy. JERA’s president stated that they are focused on learning more about off-shore wind energy and extend its service to Japan and the rest of the world.

JERA currently owns a 49% stake in Fromosa 2, and once the commercial operation starts, then, it is all set to produce 376 MW. Costs for Fromosa 1 are expected to be around 100 billion, and it will rise by a few hundred billion yen for the next project. The International Renewable Energy Agency made the estimation that by 2030, the off-shore wind generators will produce ten times more power than the current level. These projects will put Asia in the driver’s seat of demand by replacing the European countries.
