From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This page is a list of power stations in Taiwan and the rest of the Republic of China that are publicly or privately owned. Non-renewable power stations are those that run on coal, fuel oils, nuclear power, and natural gas, while renewable power stations run on fuel sources such as biomass, geothermal heat, moving water, solar rays, tides, waves and the wind. By the end of 2011, Taiwan and the rest of the Republic of China had installed 41,401 MW of generating capacity across all types of power station.[1]

Among the lists of largest power stations, Taichung Power Plant is the largest coal-fired power station in the world.
