The UK is the world leader in offshore wind, with 5 GW operating today and with more than one million jobs created in this sector. Taiwan and the UK signed an MOU on renewable energy in 2016 with the hope to work together on the development of offshore wind energy in Taiwan. Taiwan’s government plans to phase out nuclear power plants and have an energy mix of containing 50% natural gas, 30% coal and 20% renewable energy by 2025. The development of offshore wind energy has been the focus and the government’s long-term goal is to raise Taiwan’s offshore-wind power capacity to 3GW by 2025.

 

Apart from science and technology, Taiwan and the UK have forged cooperation in many other areas. Ms.Catherine Nettleton, the representative of the British Office in Taipei said this year, the UK is going to send a team of around 200 athletes to Taiwan to take part in the Taipei 2017 Summer Universiade or World University Games adding that It is an opportunity to build sporting links with Taiwan through “SPORT is GREAT” campaign.
