Taipower Profile


Established on May 1, 1946, Taipower operates in generation, transmission, distribution, and the sale of electricity. According to the Electricity Act, Taipower is responsible for providing a stable electricity supply. Revenue from electricity sales accounted for 95% of the total revenue in 2020. As of 2020, the installed capacity in the Taipower System (including independent power producers) was 49.77 GW, which consists mainly of thermal power generation with hydroelectricity and renewable energy.

In recognition of the global trends toward sustainability and the development of future electricity markets, Taipower has been promoting an organizational transformation in recent years. In January 2016, the Company established four business divisions: the Power Generation Division, the Nuclear Power Division, the Transmission System Division, and the Distribution and Service Division. Following the establishment of these divisions, the headquarters and business divisions have adopted policy centralization and management decentralization, in an effort to transform from a government agency into a highly efficient enterprise. In the future, Taipower will abide by the requirements of the Electricity Act and transform itself into a holding company with subsidiaries, which aims to promote market competition, enhance business operation efficiency, and promote corporate sustainability. This will allow Taipower to become a prestigious and world-class power utility group that provides its customers with services of the highest quality.
