A Robust Transmission and Substation System
To ensure the stability of household and industrial electricity, Taipower has comprehensive planning and management of the power grid, transmission, substations, and distribution systems. Looking to the future, we will use five aspects in developing the next generation of stable power supply and distribution. The five aspects include: Cooperation between power distribution and power sales and implementing division of labor based on specialization,Fulfilling responsibilities and continuing the transformation, Customer retention through innovative services, Providing friendly grid connections for renewable energy, and implementing demand management and smart life.
Strengthening the Infrastructure of the Power Grid
The grid is a connective hub between the power generator and the customer. A sound power grid can effectively reduce the probability of power outages and maintain the quality of power supply. Over the years, Taipower has built a dense network around the country to ensure that people have the ability to use electricity conveniently. Regular maintenance of related facilities is also an important part of stable power supply. Taipower will continue to promote plans that increase the power grid's resilience, replace old facilities and lines. The Company will also promote grid projects in a timely manner to maintain a high-quality supply of electricity.
As Taiwan moves towards the integration of intermittently generating renewable energy sources into the grid, the stability of the system and the power supply of the whole country could potentially be affected. Taipower is committed to researching grid-connected dispatching systems and strategies, and to building related systems such as an integration platform that supplies power generation information.
Overall Taiwan has a very stabile power supply. The average number of power outages in 2018 was only 0.227 per household, and the average duration of power outages was 16.187 minutes per household. Over the past decade Taipower has steadily decreased the duration and number of power outages and greatly improved of quality of power supply, customer service, and its own corporate image.
