Taipei, June 8 (CNA) Economics Minister Lee Chih-kung (李世光) said Thursday that
the government is carrying out its plan for Taiwan to transition to greener power and has a feasible 10-year goal for a stable electricity supply to facilitate economic growth.
He was responding to concerns raised by the American Chamber of Commerce in Taipei over instability of Taiwan’s power supply during its period of transition away from nuclear power.
“The transition to a post-nuclear fuel mix is important, but it also has the potential to be economically disruptive if it is implemented too rigidly or quickly without a clear replacement plan that ensures continued cost-competitiveness, affordability, and reliability of the electricity supply,” AmCham said in a white paper released Thursday.
