Taiwan Power Report 2015

Taiwan Power Report 2015

BMI View: Heavily dependent on imports, Taiwan's power market is dominated by thermal sources, withcoal, gas, and to a lesser extent, oil-fired power stations generating the majority of energy used. WhileTaiwan's fourth nuclear plant is almost operationally ready, growing public distrust threatens to stall thestart up of this facility, even as the first two nuclear plants age and need to undergo maintenance.

Moreover, political and economic pressures have restricted Taipower, the state utility from raising tariffs,leaving the company stuck in the red. Despite the Taiwan government's ambitious renewable energy goalsto 2025, slow progress suggests renewables are unlikely to reach the target of a 16% share of energyproduced.

As Taiwan continues to experience relatively robust real GDP growth, we believe the trend of recovery inenergy consumption will continue and we expect growth to average 4.0% during 2015-2024. Thermalgeneration, comprising coal, gas, and oil, is expected to continue to drive this growth, and we forecast it willincrease by an average of 4.2% per annum during the period to 2024.
