Taiwanese chip foundry TSMC expects its electricity consumption could increase by over 50 percent in ten years as it migrates to more advanced technologies. Faced with power shortage problems in Taiwan, DigiTimes writes the foundry is exploring the possibility of generating electricity at its factories by installing generators or perhaps even building its own power plant, to ensure the company is not adversely impacted by electricity conserving measures.
TSMC has already made inquiries with Taiwan's Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) and government-owned Taiwan Power Company (Taipower) about the feasibility of building its own power generators and related regulatory matters, the sources disclosed.

According to Taiwan's Power Industry Law, companies can set up power generating equipment for use at their own factory sites. In other words, the law has to be revised to allow TSMC to build its own power plant, the sources observed.
