Taiwan’s main power provider plans to invest $22.7 billion (US) to boost the amount of wind energy generated to 4,200 megawatts. Taiwan’s Ministry of Economic Affairs unveiled the details as part of the nation’s eight-year green energy development plan, an ambitious project aimed at phasing out nuclear plants by 2025. The target is to have 3,000 MW of offshore wind and 1,200 MW of onshore wind by that time. Taiwan has set a goal of raising renewable energy output from the current 5 percent to 20 percent over that time frame. Meanwhile, the country also intends to decrease its reliance on coal-burning power plants from 45.4 percent in 2016 to 30 percent by 2025.
