ECCT-Taipower release net zero power report

The European Chamber of Commerce Taiwan (ECCT) and Taiwan Power Company (Taipower) today jointly released the “Paving the Way to Net-Zero Power Report”. The report offers proposals and showcases innovative solutions aimed at achieving net zero power. Given that governments and companies in both Europe and Taiwan share the goal of reaching net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, the purpose of the report is to provide policy and technological solutions to help Taiwan to move faster along the path to net zero power and overall net zero emissions.

The publication highlights innovative renewable energy and circular economy solutions showcased at a series of workshops jointly organised by the Taipower Research Institute (TPRI) and ECCT’s Low Carbon initiative (LCI) since April 2021 as well as in individual chapters submitted by representatives from the European Union and ECCT member companies.

The report is divided into four main sections covering energy policy, the supply side, electrical grid and the demand side. The policy section includes separate chapters on zero carbon policies from the European Economic and Trade Office, Bureau Français de Taipei (the French Office in Taipei) and the Taiwan government.

Each of the other three sections include summaries of the findings of various LCI-TPRI workshops, followed by chapters submitted by individual ECCT members showcasing their solutions for zero power. There is also a chapter in the Electrical Grid section submitted by the Energy Administration of the Ministry of Economic Affairs on the government’s roadmap to net zero policies.

LCI-TPRI workshops that are covered in the report address topics including hydrogen, electric vehicles, energy storage, power grid upgrades and risk management, solar power, wind turbine blade recycling and floating offshore wind energy, to which 30 ECCT member companies and European trade office members have contributed their expertise.

In addition to coverage of the LCI-TPRI workshops, the report includes chapters from ECCT member companies on the topics of geothermal energy (Baseload Power), onshore wind energy (Enercon), floating wind energy (National Taiwan University), floating offshore wind certification (Bureau Veritas), insights on hydrogen development (TÜV Rheinland Taiwan), the hydrogen value chain (Bosch), the hydrogen economy (YARA Environmental Technologies), clean fuel of the future (Atlas Copco), decarbonising the semiconductor supply chain (Schneider Electric), energy savings (ABB), strategy for embodied carbon reduction (RCI Engineering), energy efficient lighting (Signify) and EVs for logistics (Gaius).




報告分為四個主要部分,涵蓋政策脈絡、供給面、電網面和需求面。在政策部分,包括了來自歐洲經貿辦事處、法國在台協會以及台灣政府的章節,詳細探討了淨零碳排放政策相關議題。其他三個部分彙整了多場歐洲商會低碳倡議行動(ECCT LCI)及台電綜合研究所(TPRI)研討會的摘要,並由歐洲商會會員撰文,提供對淨零能源的解決方案。電網部分更包含了經濟部能源署的文稿,分享了政府實現淨零政策的路線圖。


報告中由歐洲商會會員公司提出的文稿範疇廣泛,涵蓋地熱(Baseload Power)、陸域風電(Enercon)、浮離式離岸風電(國立台灣大學工學院)、浮動離岸風電認證(Bureau Veritas)等主題。此外,亦納入有關氫能發展見解(TÜV Rheinland Taiwan)、氫能價值鏈(Bosch)、氫經濟(YARA Environmental Technologies)、未來清潔燃料(Atlas Copco)、半導體供應鏈脫碳(Schneider Electric)、能源節約(ABB)、實現碳減排的策略(RCI Engineering)、效能照明(Signify)以及物流電動車(Gaius)等主題。
