R&D in Green Power
Taipower's efforts to promote low-carbon electricity are tireless and never-ending. However, the potential challenges of renewable energy cannot be ignored. Through various auxiliary devices and analytical technologies, renewable energy should be able to meet public electricity utilization demands. But, a combined power forecast system and energy storage system for peak load shifting will also be necessary and will allow Taipower to ensure competitiveness in the energy industry.
Strengthening the Application of Low-Carbon Energy
Wind and solar photovoltaic power are intermittent energy sources. The injection of electricity from these sources into the grid will lead to instability of the power system. The unpredictable energy output of renewable sources will be more difficult to dispatch and increase the costs of investment in and operation of the grid. Therefore, the ability to predict generation rates of wind and solar photovoltaic power will be an important component of business models in the power industry of the future.
Taipower is seeking to manage the effects of unstable renewable energy output by developing a short-term (6-hour) and medium-term (48-hour) forecast systems for the Company's wind farm. The Company has also developed a 48-hour solar photovoltaic power output forecast system as part of its Phase 1 Solar Power Station development. In the future, Taipower will develop monitoring capabilities for wind turbine operation and maintenance, solar photovoltaic operation and maintenance, rainfall forecasting and water level changes in reservoir catchment areas. These forcast capabilities will improve the efficiency of green power dispatching, and the development of these and other related developments is a priority for the Company.
