CB - City Seminar (香港席明納)
On 24 November, 2018, Taiwan held referendums on ten topics. All three referendums related to energy passed. These included Proposition 7 against air pollution, to reduce by 1 percent year-on-year the electricity production of thermal power plants; Proposition 8 against the Shen-ao Power Plant, to stop construction and expansion of any coal-fired thermal power plants or generator units; and Proposition 16 on going green simultaneously with nuclear, to repeal Article 95 Paragraph 1 of the Electricity Act, in which it says, “Nuclear-energy-based power generating facilities shall wholly stop running by 2025”.
The referendums mentioned above reflect the discontent of citizens on the electricity shortages and air pollution that has occurred in recent years and their rising doubt on the government’s energy transformation policy.
According to the operating characteristics of various power plants, Professor Liang proposes an optimal electricity mix in Taiwan in 2025 from an economic and environmental perspective, namely, 32.4% coal-fired power, 40% gas-fired power, 10% renewable energy power, and 17.5% nuclear power generation. His proposal could avoid the four major problems caused by the government's energy transformation policy and may serve as a reference for the government to reformulate a new energy policy.more
