[Reporter Wu Xintian/Taipei Report] The government is striving to achieve net zero emissions by 2050. According to a recent review report, the first phase of the 2020 carbon emission reduction target was only 1.88%. The impact of factors such as the epidemic and the return of Taiwanese businessmen did not meet expectations.

The National Development Council and the Environmental Protection Agency held the "Phase Goals and Key Strategies of Net Zero Transformation" today. The National Development Council mentioned that my country's carbon emission reduction path is reviewed and determined every five years, and the Executive Yuan has approved a 2% reduction in 2020 , 10% reduction goal in 2025; the most recently completed review report for the first phase in 2020 was a reduction of 1.88%, which did not fully meet the target, but emphasized that 2025 will still move towards a 10% reduction as scheduled.

Zhang Zijing, director of the Environmental Protection Agency, said that the main reason is that the emission factor of electricity did not meet expectations. Due to the impact of factors including the epidemic situation and the return of Taiwanese businessmen, the increased renewable energy was diluted by the increased demand for electricity, so the emission factor of electricity could not be reached, so it was poor. A little bit.

He pointed out that in addition to checking the previous efforts for follow-up corrections in the phased goals, if there is a gap with the goal, you can look back and check the direction of your efforts.

Chen Zhengqi, Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Economic Affairs, pointed out that the deployment of renewable energy is slow at first and then fast. This year, the two parts of wind power and photovoltaics have indeed failed to fully meet the standards.

But he pointed out that there was a learning curve at the beginning, and through the new development model, loosening of regulations and inter-ministerial consultations, he expects it will be smoother from now on.

He explained that for the wind power part, seabed surveys, infrastructure construction, and related planning and other tests should be carried out in the early stage.

Last year, affected by the epidemic, border control made it inconvenient for many engineers to come to Taiwan. In addition, the supply of some materials was interrupted, and Walrus needed to cooperate with many technical issues.

He pointed out that there seems to be little progress in the front, but it will soon follow. He believes that the target of 5.6GW of cumulative offshore wind power installed in 2025 can be achieved.

As for solar photovoltaics, Chen Zhengqi explained that at the beginning, he encountered some problems such as land and localities. Through inter-ministerial consultations, he found a new development model, and symbiosis and co-prosperity with the localities. Everyone benefits from each other. Including already supplied power, developing sources and potential sources.

He further pointed out that this year's Sunshine Optoelectronics actually exceeded the target in terms of this year's goal, but last year was not smooth, and it has to catch up with the progress, and next year's progress can catch up.

In 2025, the accumulative installation of 20GW of solar power can also meet the standard.
