The portfolio of renewable energy sources for achieving the three E policy goals

Publication year: 2011brbSource:/b Energy, In Press, Corrected Proof, Available online 5 March 2011brYung-Chi, Shen , Chiyang James, Chou , Grace T.R., LinbrRenewable energy is considered by many policy-makers to contribute to achieving at least three major policy goals: the energy goal, the environmental goal, and the economic goal (3E goals). As an innovation-oriented island country with scarce natural resources, Taiwan announced the Sustainable Energy Policy Principles in 2008 that stated that Taiwan’s renewable energy policy should accomplish the 3E goals. Several studies point out that specific renewable energy policy goals lead to specific renewable energy sources and technologies because each type of renewable energy has different features. In order to achieve the renewable energy policy goals, this research aims to examine how…br Highlights: ►This study aims to propose a portfolio of renewable energy sources to achieve energy, environmental, and economic policy goals for Taiwan. ►Non-pumped storage hydropower performs best to achieve energy and environmental goals. ►Wind energy performs well to accomplish environmental goal. ►Solar energy is the most preferred alternative to achieve economic goal. ►The portfolio of non-pumped storage hydropower, wind energy, and solar energy can accomplish the three E policy goals at the same time.
