Energy-Heavy Industrial Consumers

Excluding nonprofit and social service organizations such as schools, hospitals, government agencies, and transportation, there are approximately 300 major electricity consumers across Taiwan. Among them, the majority belong to traditional industries like semiconductor, steel, and petrochemicals, as well as the electronics industry. To allow these major electricity consumers to fulfill their obligations with more flexibility, the Major Electricity Consumer Terms provide four options: setting up renewable energy generation equipment, installing energy storage systems, purchasing renewable energy certificates, and making financial contributions.

The advantages and disadvantages are as follows: 




From the above pros and cons analysis, it can be seen that paying fees is the most expensive method and has no real help in saving electricity, money, and carbon reduction. When large electricity consumers do not have enough space to install renewable energy generation equipment and cannot purchase renewable energy certificates, installing energy storage equipment is the most suitable option.

In addition, while choosing to set up renewable energy power generation equipment, it can also be equipped with energy storage equipment, such as, PV+storage, wind+storage...etc. To use renewable energy in a more flexible and stable manner, storing power during off-peak times, and generating power during peak times, help achieve the maximum benefit of peak-shaving and valley-filling.
