New Taipei City is best at ‘green’ energy: report

By Shelley Shan  /  Staff reporter

Green Citizen Action Alliance deputy secretary-general Hung Shen-han (洪申翰) said that the evaluation contained qualitative and quantitative parts.

The qualitative part examined if members of the public can participate in green energy initiatives, if a local government stipulates its own energy regulations and mobilizes resources from the government well as the private sector to enforce them, Hung said.

The quantitative part gauges the growth of electricity consumption per capita, as well as aggregate electricity consumption in each city or county, Hung said, adding that it also factors in the increase in green energy consumption.

Citizen of the Earth, Taiwan director Tsai Hui-hsun (蔡卉荀) said that while it is important for local government officials to develop green energy policies, they must also make sure that they do not create controversies when they select locations to install new facilities.
