As reported locally today, Taiwan’s Bureau of Energy (BOE) has set tentative feed-in tariffs for renewable energy in 2018, lowering the rates by 11.82-13.45% for PV power and 0.73-4.61% for wind power.

While for all other renewables the feed-in-tariffs have been lowered over 2017 tariffs, the tariff for geothermal has been increased by 5% to NT$ 5.1956/ kWh (USD 0.17224/ kWh)

Before finalizing feed-in tariff rates, BOE will hold a public hearing to collect opinions from all parties concerned in early November.
