Green Building and Green Factory Milestone
Fab 14 Introduced a Smart Control System and Received First Exceptional Smart Building Award in Taiwan
TSMC is the leading semiconductor company worldwide for the largest LEED-certified building area, and the number one enterprise in Taiwan with the largest green building-certified areas and most number of certified green fabs. In addition to these green certifications, in 2018, TSMC’s Fab 14 introduced a smart control system with features including automatic curtains that open and close to control lighting, and automatic carbon dioxide detectors that draw fresh air from outside whenever needed. Both room temperature and air quality can be adjusted according to the season and temperature, maintaining a comfortable, low-energy consumption, and smart work environment. Fab 14 received the first exceptional smart building award from the Ministry of the Interior in Taiwan.
