Taipei, March 20 (CNA) Taiwan’s Executive Yuan has decided to spend NT$300 billion (US$9.84 billion) over the next eight years to build infrastructure to generate green energy and preserve water.

A special budget totaling NT$50 billion has been planned for green-energy related infrastructure, aimed at ensuring the country’s sustainable development and transforming Taiwan into a nuclear-free homeland by 2025, Executive Yuan spokesman Hsu Kuo-yung (徐國勇) said Monday.

Taiwan’s government is hoping to increase green energy’s contribution to the country’s overall electricity generation from 5.1 percent in 2016 to 20 percent in 2025, Hsu said at a press conference.    [FULL  STORY]
