Experience with renewable energy projects over the last decade in Taiwan has revealed opportunities to improve the permitting process and stakeholder engagement. To address this, members of the ECCT Wind Energy Committee’s Stakeholder Engagement Best Practices Working Group have collaborated to produce a report which identifies the main challenges and makes recommendations to improve the stakeholder engagement and permitting process. This event has been arranged to launch the report as a basis for further dialogue with the government and other stakeholders.

The report summarises the challenges faced by the industry, examines best international practices, standards, and associated academic research to provide an in-depth analysis of the current industry situation in Taiwan and offers concrete recommendations for green energy development in Taiwan. By initiating this much-needed dialogue among stakeholders from government, political parties, and the general public, the goal is to foster collaboration between the private and public sectors to address current challenges and achieve the common goals of expanding and expediting Taiwan’s renewable energy rollout.

The event will feature an opening speech by Dr Chen Chung-Hsin, Director of the Renewable and Prospective Energy Development Division of the Energy Administration, under the Ministry of Economic Affairs, and presentations by members of the ECCT Wind Energy Committee’s Stakeholder Engagement Best Practices Working Group, comprising 33 industry experts from 27 international and local companies and organisations,  on: 1) Project cycles for renewable energy projects and an update on Taiwan’s current consent regime for offshore wind; 2) The importance of stakeholder engagement in renewable energy projects and 3) Key findings of the stakeholder engagement report.
