Division I undertakes researches within the area of gender equality, energy policy, environmental policy, energy statistics, GHG reduction, electricity economy, power corporation management, power engineering, renewable energy technology.
(1) Gender equality
First, we focus on the development of gender equality issues in Taiwan and foreign countries. Then, we establish links with women’s non-governmental organizations in Taiwan and abroad. Also, we promote the integration of gender perspectives in different areas. Hope to make the policy completely.
(2) Energy Policy, Environmental Policy, Energy Statistics and GHG Reduction
In order to address the grand energy and environmental challenge of the 21st century, our research team study energy and policy environmental issues to develop sustainable energy policy and protect the environment from the impacts of global climate change.
Besides, in order to enchant the fairness, justice, and public participation in the policy development process, our research team focuses on important issues of strategic environmental assessment(SEA) and energy governance in the Taiwan Energy Transition.
Our research team are now engaged on a long-term assessment of the energy, economic and environmental implications of the Taiwan Energy Transition, and provide independent and rigorous research output that informs energy public sector decision making.
Construct basic energy statistics data as basis of energy supply/demand forecast, policy plan and promotion.
In the same time, collect latest international energy statistics method to build up data processing guidance note, with the purpose of improving the quality of data.
To promote the use of energy statistics data in different fields with organize seminar and forum.
Research on GHG Reduction focuses on the following areas:
1. analyzing domestic greenhouse gas emissions statistics and trends
2. projecting national emissions
3. tracing progress towards domestic greenhouse gas emissions reduction target
4. analyzing major international GHG issues
5. tracking progress of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change
6. establishing strategies to reduce and manage greenhouse gas emissions
7. analyzing main countries’ emissions control supervision mechanisms
8. conducting assessment of impact of GHG reduction
In order to conduct research on GHG reduction and management issues, our team
closely analyzes the domestic greenhouse gas emissions statistics and observes the trends. The progress towards domestic greenhouse gas emissions reduction target has been kept tracked of. In addition, significant progress reports have been produced concerning major international GHG issues and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
The main countries' emissions control supervision mechanisms are also analyzed. Through the solid research works, it paves the way to establish the strategies to reduce and manage greenhouse gas emissions and build up the capacity to conduct assessment of impact of GHG reduction.
(3)Electricity economy and Power Corporation Management
(4)Power Engineering & Renewable Energy Technology
Our outstanding interdisciplinary researchers who are dedicated to international cooperation provide high standard of research on electric safety and standard of high-voltage power equipment of power generation, transmission, distribution, substation and end users. We improve and execute quality inspection, certification and check of high-voltage and renewable energy power equipment. In addition, we analyze statistical data and relevant experiences of domestic and foreign renewable energy generation system installation, to provide a forward-looking strategic plan and assessment for the reliable electric power system.
(5)Electricity supply and demand to analysis and planning in the future
In order to achieve the target of Energy Transition Policy, our team is actively to forecast the effect of economic and temperature for power demand, and plan the power supplies to face the rick of tight power supply in the period of energy transition.
In addition, our team also assists the government to supervise the generation units will be stable operation. Besides, the team analyzes the effect of local government’s coal reducing policy on power supply, and provides the information to decide energy public sectors.
