Abstract:There has been a general awareness about environmental protection in recent years, and the idea of ’going green’ has been popular around the world. Because of economic growth and an energy crisis, the developmental trend of energy may be turned from expendable to renewable energy. Ocean energy is the richest resource among all renewable energy. Therefore, the development and use of ocean resources is the most important energy issue. Due to the lack of fossil fuel, it is critical to develop renewable energy in Taiwan. The greatest advantage among Taiwan’s natural resources is the surrounding oceans. However, ocean energy is still a growing industry, and is lacks enough supporting policies in Taiwan. For further investigation and analysis of ocean bio-energy and ocean mechanical energy in Taiwan, this paper uses a PEST questionnaire and adopts SWOT analysis, to get a thorough understanding of their overall and business environment. Results show that developing ocean bio-energy in Taiwan and its economic benefits have been recognized. It is also shown that Taiwan has the superior nature conditions, human resources, technology and creativity to pursue it. However, ocean bio-energy in Taiwan is still in an initial stage. Technical development, government policy and regulation, capital investment, and the supply chain system all require the government’s assistance and planning. As for ocean mechanical energy, results show that nationals have a positive attitude for developing the ocean mechanical energy industry in Taiwan and its economic benefits. Also, they accept that the technical development has progressed towards a mature stage. Most repliers agree that Taiwan has advantageous natural and human resources. However technical development, policy, regulation, and capital investment all require an overall plan and further government support in order for the ocean mechanical energy industry in Taiwan to promote its competiveness. The findings of this paper can be a good reference in assisting ocean bio-energy and ocean mechanical energy companies in operational decision-making, as well as government agencies in formulating supportive energy policies.
