We support the use of renewable energy with actions. We reduce GHG emissions and minimize environmental impact induced by production activities.
Installation of Renewable Energy Facilities
“Develop renewable energy” is one of the five major strategies propelling FENC forward along its march towards net zero. The Company has been intent on investing in and installing a broad mix of renewable energy facilities. Solar, biogas and wind power generators will be installed in Taiwan, mainland China, Vietnam, Japan and the U.S. FENC is supporting renewable energy use and GHG reduction with actions while minimizing environmental impacts from its production activities.
Since 2016, FENC has been installing solar power stations at its production sites in mainland China, which have generated a total of 69,275 MWh of solar power accumulatively. In 2022, a total of 14,199 MWh of solar power was generated at FENC sites in Taiwan, mainland China and Vietnam, of which 87% was consumed by FENC and a total of 6,876 tCO2e GHG emissions were avoided. During the same period, Hsinpu Chemical Fiber Plant, Hukou Mill, FEFC, OPSC and FENV added solar power facilities with a total of 2,647 kW in capacity. Additional solar facilities will be added at all production sites, bringing the projected installed capacity FENC-wide to 90MW in 2025, a soaring 500% growth from 2022 that would generate 100 GWh of power annually.
Renewable Energy Generation and Installed Capacity
Procurement of Renewable Energy
FENC has been purchasing green power since 2015. When the trading of Taiwan Renewable Energy Certificate (T-REC) started in 2018, FENC purchased T-REC from the Southern Region Campus of ITRI in 2019. In 2020, FENC accumulated 1,190 MWh of T-REC with additional purchase from National Penghu University of Science and Technology. In 2022, five FENC production sites in mainland China and Japan purchased 97.9 GWh of renewable energy certificates and avoided 57,390 tCO2e of GHG emissions. FENC plans to purchase a minimum of 100 GWh of renewable energy certificates per year in the future to further reduce energy indirect GHG emissions.
