The Controversies over Phasing Out Nuclear Power in Taiwan


After the construction of the fourth nuclear power plant (FNPP) has been suspended in 2015, the Taiwanese government has written the ‘Nuclear Free Taiwan 2025” policy into the Electricity Act (Article 95) in January 2017. How has the Taiwanese government made it? What was the interaction between the state, industry, and society? How has the consensus on nuclear free Taiwan been formed? Can this goal be achieved as scheduled? By answering these questions, this talk will describe the ongoing dynamics among various actors and give an overview of the development and controversies of nuclear power policy in Taiwan under three presidents.
