Taipei, March 11 (CNA) President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) reasserted Taiwan’s intention to phase out nuclear energy by 2025 as planned on Saturday, when more than 5,000 people took to the streets across the country to demand the government move faster to meet that goal.

“Taiwan in 2025 will no longer rely on nuclear power. Taiwan will have embraced clean and sustainable energy by then,” Tsai said on her Facebook page.

Taiwan has been working to develop renewable energy, she said, adding that green energy output in Taiwan grew by 21.2 percent from 2015 to 2016, to a record-high 12.69 billion kilowatt-hours.    [FULL  STORY]
