As Taiwan marches towards a greener future, the first private geothermal power station in Taiwan passed required environmental evaluation on the 19th and is set to reach an annual electricity output of 800 million kilowatt-hours by 2025.

This capacity roughly equals one-tenth of Taiwan's Second Nuclear Power Plant. The power station, named Lize after the area it will be built on, will include 11 production wells and seismic sensors to protect the plant from Taiwan's frequent earthquakes. Once the project secures adequate financing, the Lize power station will embody Taiwan's first and significant attempt at tapping the nation's rich geothermal energy.
