- 2 Kilowatt Society


During the TAUP -NATPA meeting on 1/26 in Taipei City, it was presented that the poll shows the most urgent and highest top issues are economy and jobs. It is also well understood that the economic expansion and the job creation needs to achieve the goal of reducing the carbon foot print and energy consumption (節能減炭). We all know Taiwan has not been able to reduce the carbon foot print. The electrical motorcycles and cars will be important in this regard.

 

On the other hand, there is an important proposal regarding the reduction of the energy consumption, namely, the 2 kilowatt society. At the meeting, I noticed that most people are not aware of this. Here is the Wikipedia reference for people having an interested in helping the TIW administration.

James J Y Hsu
