To realize the Administration’s “2025 Nuclear-Free Home” policy, changes must be made to current distribution of electricity generation, including boosting the percentage of green energy and gas combined cycle generation. Meanwhile, supplementary measures for energy-related R&D and stable power source must also be proposed to meet this goal. To this end, green energy, natural gas and nuclear-free home must be tackled in a holistic way.

In addition to developing green energy, another way to boost power supply is to update existing electricity generation units. The government will accelerate the completion of Natural Gas Terminal No. 3 and increase the ratio of natural gas in fuel mix. This move, as a critical supplementary measure of “Stable nuclear energy reduction en route to nuclear-free home”, will not only mitigate air pollution but also buy time to develop green electricity generation options. The government’s goal is to establish an energy supply system that is low-emission, sustainable, high quality, stable, efficient and cost-effective. Aside from achieving nuclear-free home in 2025, the ratio of renewable energy in the power supply equation must also reach 20%. The continuous addition of power from renewable energy feeding into the grid is an unstoppable trend. To address the overall need of Taiwan’s electricity supply system and environmental issues such as CO2 reduction, natural gas will only increase in importance in the energy mix.
