Towards net-zero emissions by 2050, in addition to saving energy, energy creation and storage are also required. This year, the Taipei City Environmental Protection Bureau launched the “Taipei Residential Community Energy Creation, Energy Storage and Energy Conservation Subsidy Program” for the first time this year, with a planned subsidy of 100 million yuan for residential buildings The community sets up energy creation and energy storage equipment to promote distributed power generation. The application period is from May 1 to July 31 or until the subsidy funds are exhausted.
