James C. Liao, the President of Academia Sinica
The World Economic Forum has pointed out that climate change is the most urgent risk facing society today. Therefore, Taiwan needs to accelerate the construction of a high-efficiency low-carbon social system, with further carbon reduction as its vision, to chart a long-term transformation roadmap. This book examines systematically the challenges of Taiwan's energy transformation, from the perspectives of "governance reform", "policy tool" and "civil actions", and puts forward feasible policy recommendations that can serve as a guide for moving towards a carbon-neutral society in Taiwan.

Chi-Ming Peng, Meteorologist
In the face of climate change/energy transformation, Taiwan seems to have more blue-green ideology or faith than scientific dialectic, and more are said than done. The book brings together a number of top scholars in the country, sorting out first-hand scientific data, hoping that it will enable the public to understand the discussion in the future, so that Taiwan will not stay out of this wave of global energy transformation.

Yu-Li Lin, Writer
Taiwan's energy transformation is only just beginning, and the next few years will be filled with challenges such as power shortages, electricity prices, air pollution, electrification of transportation, and improved energy consumption of buildings. The authors of this book come from different fields of expertise. Their reflections will help to clear up the relevant doubts.
