The process of granting establishment licenses is underway in Taiwan. Unless something unforeseen legal complication arises, projects under development by parties including Ørsted and Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) are expected to be issued on Tuesday, when the Chinese New Year is celebrated, at the latest, informs Taiwanese Minister of Economy Chuan-Neng Lin  Wednesday during a press conference, reports Taiwanese media United News Daily.

At a price of TWD 5.516 (EUR 0.16) per kWh the price is set roughly in the middle of spread between TWD 5.84 per kWh originally awarded to the projects and the latter rate of TWD 5.09 per kWh proposed in a November ministerial draft.
