Electricity generation in Taiwan 2008-2018

Over a span of ten years between 2008 and 2018, Taiwan’s production of electricity has reflected an increasing trend. As of 2018, the amount of electricity produced peaked at a total of nearly 260 terawatt hours.

Renewable energy sources in Taiwan

While the capacity for green energy power in Taiwan has been on the rise since 2008, the actual production of electricity from such sources still has a long way to go. By 2018, Taiwan had tapped into the potential of solar power and bioenergy to produce electricity. In combination, the annual production of electricity from solar and bioenergy in 2018 measured around 32.2 terawatt hours, which was higher than the amount of water or wind powered electricity produced in that year.

Vox pop on nuclear power in Taiwan

Besides establishing renewable forms of energy production, Taiwan has also considered resorting to nuclear power as another clean energy source. In 2019, the hotly debated topic had 44 percent of respondents to a survey indicating that they were against abolishing nuclear power in the country, as opposed to nearly 17 percent of respondents in support of the decision. In addition, another 30 percent of respondents were in favor of availing clean energy at a higher price in that year.
