Much progress has been made over the past year towards putting in place the policies and regulatory mechanisms to enable an increase in renewable energy, particularly offshore wind and solar energy. However, considerable work remains to be done to reach Taiwan’s energy saving and carbon reduction goals. At this event our guest speaker will provide an update on the government’s most recent progress, efforts and future plans in this regard.
