Energy and Resources Management

Renewable Energy

A total of 2,125 MWh of electricity was generated from WNC’s solar power plants in 2020, and approximately 1,121 tonnes of CO2e was reduced. The annual power generation equates to a carbon absorption capacity of approximately 2.9 times that of Taipei’s DaAn Forest Park.

Energy Conservation Results

In addition to enhancing the resource efficiency of our product design as well as R&D and production processes, we have also implemented energy conservation and carbon reduction measures at our sites. These measures include recording and analyzing daily energy consumption, improving electricity usage efficiency, improving piping and electrical wiring, improving and/or replacing old facility equipment, and implementing various energy conservation programs. WNC has implemented the ISO 50001 energy management system and formulated specific improvement plans for its illumination systems, exhaust systems, air-conditioning systems and air compression systems. The effects of these energy conservation measures are presented in the table below:

Water Conservation Results

WNC operates in an R&D- and technology-intensive industry and only tap water is used at WNC sites in Taiwan and China. WNC’s Vietnam site uses underground water. In 2020, saved and recycled water made up approximately 12.6% of the total water withdrawn by WNC, which saved about NT$4.19 million in water withdrawal costs.
