EDPR Sunseap, the Asia Pacific platform of EDP Renewables, has started supplying electricity commercially from solar installations at 56 schools in Taiwan for 2022, supporting the island’s transition to clean and renewable energy.

The installations have a total capacity of 15 Megawatts-peak (MWp), sufficient to supply approximately 4,440 Taiwanese households annually while offsetting 9,196 metric tonnes of carbon emissions*. Energy produced from these solar installations is distributed through Taiwan’s National Grid.

About 70% of these solar installations are in Yunlin County, a region known for its agricultural products. In one of the projects, EDPR Sunseap installed solar panels on the top-level bleachers surrounding a sports field – taking advantage of existing, elevated spaces that have been underutilised.

EDPR Sunseap has a pipeline of solar projects in schools totalling another 13 MWp in 2023, to support Taiwan’s national net zero target by 2050.

An EDPR Sunseap spokesperson said: “Solar systems installed in schools do not just reduce carbon emissions, they also provide an environment where students can experience first-hand how solar energy systems work. Education is a building block that can significantly accelerate renewable development in Taiwan.”
