"The government is determined to develop green energy and is confident of reaching the target of generating 20GW of solar energy annually by 2025, ensuring 20% of the nation's total energy output is from renewables.", Vice President Chen Chien-Jen said on Oct. 12 while addressing the opening of the International Photovoltaic Exhibition.
"The government introduced the goal as part of its efforts to phase out nuclear power generation. The goal will require investment of NT$1.2 trillion (US$37.96 billion)."
"Taiwan is in an excellent position to develop all sorts of green energy. If we can pool our resources, Taiwan will very likely become a center for green energy R&D and experimentation in the Asia Pacific", Chen said.
