A model, based on the Fuzzy Analytic Hierarchy Process (Fuzzy AHP), was developed to determine the importance sequence and the key success factors of the selection of appropriate sites of offshore wind farms in Taiwan. The wind speed, typhoon, earthquake, distance to shoreline, land use, and flight safety were the key success factors in the selection of appropriate sites of offshore wind farms in Taiwan. The importance of the communications and transportation increased day by day as the economic development increased. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the Eighteenth International Offshore and Polar Engineering Conference (Vancouver, Canada 7/6-11/2008).
