Reforming Taiwan's energy sector: policy paralysis and blackouts


Reforming Taiwan's energy sector: policy paralysis and blackouts

Report summary

Taiwan’s power sector is operating in survival mode. Recent power reserve margins have been extremely low and are expected to worsen further going into 2015. Rolling blackouts are now a distinct possibility. Critical longer-term issues need to be resolved, including the introduction of cost reflective prices, liberalisation of fuel imports and binding decisions on the role for nuclear power.
