The Preliminary Energy Management on larger energy consumption projects conducted by the Ministry of Economic Affairs shall help the energy users reduce energy cost.
     To effectively improve industrial energy efficiency, Taiwan, alongside United Kingdom, Germany, and South Korea are among the few countries in the world that execute a preliminary energy managing mechanism. The Preliminary Energy Reviewing System (PERS) conducted by the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) reaches its 3-year-milestone, while 17 new larger energy consumption projects had been reviewed for industries including power generation, semi-conductor, iron and steel manufacturing, man-made fiber manufacturing, and chemicals, helping to improve efficiency of production process, optimizing energy efficiency, and controlling the supply and demand of energy.

     According to the "Regulations Governing the Assessment of Energy Development and Utilization" that promulgated on 24th, November 2015, MOEA conducts PERS for new massive production projects whose energy consumptions might have the significant impact on the overall domestic energy. Prior to investments, the aforementioned projects need to adopt best available techniques (BAT) which are commercialized and of high energy efficiency, and to submit the energy utilization manuals to the ministry for further review, MOEA says. Plants or factories can only be established once the plans are authorized. Based on the experiences of firms, it is more effective to improve energy efficiency with a systematic approach at the planning stage than improving it after the establishment of the plant. PERS aims not only to improve energy efficiency but to assist enterprises to plan ahead for saving future energy bills.

     Through the execution of PERS, says the Bureau of Energy (BOE), there are 17 new massive production projects proposed by 11 firms, including 9 plans from power generation, 3 from semi-conductors, 2 from iron and steel manufacturing, 1 from man-made fiber manufacturing, and 2 from chemicals have been reviewed. More than 120 BAT for energy efficiency are examined before the plants are built. Newly-established gas-fired plants are all committed to build high efficiency power generators in line with EU's BAT reference, with net electrical efficiency (measured in LHV) reaching as high as 58%, while in some cases it exceeds more than 60%, far beyond EU's standards. Besides, there are more than 35 public utility systems been optimized, improving energy efficiency for future factory operation.

     BOE further emphasizes, PERS, while helping enterprises with energy efficiency optimization, not only mitigates the pressure on national energy supply but also suppresses greenhouse gas emission, as well as reducing energy bills, hence striking a policy balance among the "3Es": Energy, Environment, and Economic.
