In order to utilize the natural wind power in Taiwan Strait, windfarm projects have been proposed to the government and obtained the greenlight by the department of Energy and Environmental Protection Agency. However, NGOs focused on the construction and operation of wind turbines may damage the marine mammals and bird species along the coastline. A conference held by EPA in October 2019 invited numerous experts from Europe and Taiwan to discuss the possible impact and minimization procedures for the off-shore windfarms.
