Greening the Ocean?: Spatial Struggles over the
Offshore Wind Farms, Dolphin Conservation, and
Oyster Farming Culture in Taiwan
Dr. Po-Yi Hung – 2021-22 Fulbright Scholar and Luce East Asia Fellow, National
Humanities Center and UNC-Chapel Hill; Associate Professor,
Department of Geography, National Taiwan University
What does the “green” mean in green energy? In Taiwan, the planned site for offshore wind farms overlaps with both oyster farms and the habitat of Taiwanese Humpback Dolphins, categorized as a critically endangered species by the IUCN. This has resulted in a clash between conserving the oyster farming landscape, protecting an endangered species, and developing green energy against climate change. Facing this dilemma, this talk reconsiders the spatial struggles over the “green” label affixed to offshore wind farm projects, and other forms of green energy in general.
Recording coming soon.
