Abstract: Since the launch of the Energiewende (Energy Transition) in Germany in 2010, the concept influences on energy and climate policies around the globe. In May 2016, the Taiwan government began promoting renewable energy (RE) and phasing out nuclear power. However, it has not used the Renewable Energy Development Act, which is similar to the German Erneuerbare Energien Gesetz, as the main instrument. Instead, the new government has prioritised the revision of the Electricity Act and the introduction of liberalisation to allow RE producers to compete in the market and sell directly to end consumers.
