Taiwan

Climate targets: Energy

    • Renewable energy share in the electricity system 8% by 2025
      Energy | Trajectory target | Target year: 2025 | Base year: 2008
    • Increase the share of low carbon energy in electricity generation systems from the current 40% to 55% by 2025 against a 2008 baseline
      Energy | Fixed level target | Target year: 2025 | Base year: 2008
    • Increase the utilization of low carbon natural gas, therefore it could account for more than 25% of power generated by 2025 against a 2008 baseline
      Energy | Trajectory target | Target year: 2025 | Base year: 2008
    • Reduce the energy use of governmental agencies and schools by 7% by 2015 against a 2008 baseline
      Energy | Base year target | Target year: 2015 | Base year: 2008
    • Raise appliance efficiency standards by 10% to 70% by 2011 against a 2008 baseline, and further raise the efficiency standards by 2015
      Energy | Base year target | Target year: 2015 | Base year: 2008
    • Supplemented by further technological breakthroughs and proper administrative measures, energy intensity will decrease 50% by 2025 against a 2008 baseline
      Energy | Intensity target | Target year: 2025 | Base year: 2008
    • Improve energy efficiency by more than 2% per annum, so that when compared with the level in 2005, energy intensity will decrease 20% by 2015 against a 2008 baseline
      Energy | Intensity target | Target year: 2015 | Base year: 2008
    • The rewardable gross capacity of renewable energy is 6.5 million kilowatts to 10 million kilowatts of gross installed capacity by 2029. Upon the rewardable gross installed capacity reaching 5 million kilowatts, the central competent authority shall review the target.
