In spite of the limited contribution to daily operating reserve from renewable energy due to its intermittency, the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) makes all-out effort to develop renewable energy. The MOEA raised the renewable energy target by 1.5 times to 17,250 MW for 2030. Taiwan’s Renewable Energy Development Act was passed on July 8th , 2009, and the renewable energy promotion target for 2030 was first set at 10,858 MW in 2010, which has been raised to 12,502 MW in 2011 and then further to 13,750 MW in 2014, with an increase of 26.6%.
