Taiwan has made progress in recent years in its shift towards a low carbon economy. Ambitious targets have been set to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and increase the portion of renewable energy sources to 20% of the energy mix by 2025. In line with these goals the government has introduced incentives and helped smooth the regulatory process for renewable energy developers. Nevertheless, the bulk of Taiwan's building stock is not energy efficient and progress has been slow in switching to green building designs. Since buildings account for a large portion of Taiwan's electricity consumption, much more work is needed to upgrade the building sector if Taiwan is to meet its GHG reduction targets.
A chapter in the LCI's 2018 report, "Energy for the Next Generation", highlights out some of the problems that have arisen following the passage of the Coastal Zone Management Act海岸管理法 in 2015. The report points out that the act, while well-intentioned to protect coastal areas from harmful development, has stifled the development of onshore wind turbines in coastal areas.
At this event our guest speaker will speak about the MOI's latest policies regarding green buildings and the Coastal Zone Management Act. This event will follow immediately after the LCI's 2018 mid-year meeting and is open to all ECCT members interested in environmental issues.
The speech will be presented in Mandarin with English translation
