Taiwan’s net-zero goals presents opportunities for U.S. green building suppliers.

In March 2022, Taiwan National Development Council (NDC) published its “Taiwan’s Pathway to Net-Zero Emissions in 2050” report, laying out a roadmap for Taiwan’s net-zero goals set by President Tsai Ing-wen.  (For more information, please visit NDC’s website)
 
Taiwan’s residential and commercial buildings sector play a major role in determining Taiwan’s carbon emissions as the sector comprises 35 to 37 percent of the nation’s energy expenditure, which makes the transition to greener buildings an imperative.
 
The report states that by 2030, Taiwan aims to use 100% LED lights in commercial buildings and will endeavor to have all new public buildings qualify as building energy efficiency class 1 structures or nearly zero-emissions, as determined by the Taiwan Ministry of the Interior and Architecture and Building Research Institute, with level 1 serving as the highest efficiency level.  Other areas of emphasis include improving exterior design, energy efficiency, appliance energy efficiency standards, and the deployment of smart meters.  
 
In helping reduce carbon intensity in line with Taiwan’s 2050 goals, green building materials, energy efficient/saving appliances and lighting, and home renewable energy systems pose promising opportunities for U.S. companies.
