Year of Energy Conservation and Carbon Reduction: MOEA Help Industrial Parks Cut Emissions through Joint Efforts
To broaden achievements in carbon reduction and help industry conserve energy and cut carbon emissions, the Industrial Development Bureau (IDB), MOEA, Chinese Taipei, inaugurated " Industrial Greenhouse and Energy Reduction Services Corps" in 2009, providing over 1500 consultations within the year. These consultations include on-site investigations and over 2,000 suggestions for boilers, compressors, refrigeration units, electric power and lighting systems, manufacturing processes, and the re-use of steam and waste heat. If implemented, these measures would reduce 650,000-plus metric tones of CO2 equivalent, and lower industrial energy expenses by at least NT$500 million.
IDB specifically broadened its assistance and services to factories in industrial parks in its 2010 "Industrial Greenhouse and Energy Reduction Services Corps Plan". This was in line with widening conservation consultations during the "Year of Energy Saving and Carbon Reduction" and with "Renewal Plan for Outmoded Industrial Parks" to enhance environmental protection efforts.
Carbon Reduction by Everyone
As per Bureau of Energy (BOE), Ministry of Economic Affairs, Chinese Taipei, in the Year for Energy Conservation and Carbon Reduction (2010), the energy conservation measures being boosted in governmental agencies and schools will be used as models for industry and all society.
In addition, energy efficiency and energy-saving management measures are also being broadened according to the recently passed amendment to the "Energy Management Act". The relevant regulations are as follows:
To the end of July, 28 products, 261 brands, and 4,438 models have received verifications on energy efficiency labels.
BOE has launched a website named "Energy Conservation and Carbon Reduction - It's Up to Me" (http://www.lowcarbonido.com.tw/). This website allows civilians experience a joyful spirit on "how energy saving lifestyles can be lived everywhere" through several aspects of life: food, clothing, residence, transportation, education, and entertainment.
