Taiwanese society is facing an immense challenge of energy transition. Taiwan’s energy transition policy emphasizes on the increase of renewable energy which is also the goal of the EU’s 2020 Energy Strategy. The EU and Taiwan share the mutual interests in developing cooperation in the offshore wind energy. Bureau of Standards, Metrology & Inspection (BSMI), MOEA, Bureau of Foreign Trade (BOFT), MOEA, and European Economic and Trade Office (EETO) under the framework of European Business and Regulatory Cooperation Programme (EBRC) will co-host the “2018 EU-Taiwan Offshore Wind Power Certification Seminar” on 14 March. 

Due to the high costs of the project development, the financial support from corporate investment and financing institution is indispensable for a wind farm project. As an impartial third party, the accredited certification body will evaluate the feasibility of the offshore wind farm investment and the risks in offshore wind farm development, including Project Certification (PC), Marine Warranty Survey (MWS), and Due Diligence (DD).

The seminar will bring together experts from DG ENERGY of European Commission, European Investment Bank, and European industrial players as well as experts in this area from Taiwan to share their experience with the public, in order to provide more detailed information on the regulation and practice in the EU and in Taiwan to the stakeholders.
