Abstract:The development of renewable energy is essential for reducing CO2 emissions while continuing to meet the growing demand for energy with cleaner sources. Today, Taiwan is actively promoting the expansion of renewable energy in order to increase energy independence and accelerate the progress of energy transition. However, without a sufficient practice in promoting renewable energy, the Taiwanese government is attempting to search for suitable strategies from renewables precursor countries to stimulate the expansion of renewable energy. The Taiwanese government expects these methods to contribute to the achievement of its renewable energy goals by 2025. Currently, two renewables promotion strategies are being applied in Taiwan, which are: “implementing renewable energy promotion policy” and “deregulating the electricity market,” respectively. Nevertheless, there is doubt that these two strategies are suitable for the current energy status in Taiwan. Because the system integration of renewable energy in Taiwan is still in the very beginning stage, it is questionable that these strategies can effectively stimulate renewable energy domestically to meet the government’s target. Therefore, this research aims to do an in-depth evaluation with desk research and interviews to find out what influence these two renewable energy strategies have on the expansion of renewable energy in Taiwan.
