Toward the Goal of Low-Carbon Electricity
Toward the Goal of Low-Carbon Electricity

In response to the low-carbon transition trend of the global energy industry, Taipower is committed to developing high-efficiency generation technologies, adjusting its generation structure, and continuously increasing the proportion of renewable energy to reduce the electricity carbon emissions factor. Taipower has adopted the following methods to achieve energy transition and move towards low-carbon electricity:

 
  • Transformation from coal to gas-fired

    Elevate the proportion of gas and continue the trend of primarily gas with coal as support, making the gas ratio higher than that of coal

  • Coal-fired unit upgrades

    Gradually replace coal-fired units with ultra-supercritical units with better generation efficiency

  • Gas-fired unit upgrades

    Gradually phase out old gas-fired combined-cycle units and replace them with new-type combined-cycle gas-fired units with better generation efficiency

 

In recent years, Taipower has actively engaged in energy transition. Apart from reducing the carbon emission factor of electricity each year, Taipower has continued to achieve its goal of decreasing air pollution and providing cleaner electricity for industries and individuals in Taiwan through the use of cleaner energy.

Taipower actively manages the power consumption in its plants. The Company sets targets for annual power consumption in plants that do not exceed the average performance of the previous three years. Taipower is also gradually phasing out older units and replacing them with new ones. As it does so, it plans to introduce high-efficiency generating units and to enhance existing units through various operations and maintenance measures.
