Taiwan Steps Up Battle to Cut Carbon Emissions and Achieve Net-Zero by 2050
July 22, 2021

While the world is experiencing the Covid-19 outbreak since 2020, the most searched keyword in 2021 is net zero emissions. This implies that climate change is going to be another battlefield because no one is immune to its effects. For this reason, governments around the world have also actively promoted net-zero emissions to stop climate change from getting worse.
With the support of the Taiwan Smart City Project initiated by the Industrial Development Bureau (IDB) of the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MoEA), Noodoe – a Taiwan-based electric vehicle charging service provider - has cooperated with Taitung City Government, along with local car rental operators, restaurants, tourist centers, and outlying islands like "Green Island," to provide electric vehicle rental/sharing/charging services. Noodoe has cooperated with Taiwanese restaurants, shopping malls, parking lots, and resorts to set up charging stations to build a complete charging network across Taiwan. It also cooperates with charging network operators (such as EVCS), electric vehicle manufacturers (such as Audi), builders (such as Morgner), and smart city power plants (such as Southern California Edison). This tie-up helps achieve low-carbon green tourism with smart electric vehicles while breaking the deadlock between economic growth and environmental sustainability, and the trade-off between green tourism economy and local ecology.
According to the MIC (Market Intelligence & Consulting Institute), government policies, electric vehicle prices and vehicle models, and charging infrastructure all play their key role in the popularity of electric vehicles. At present, the Taiwan Smart City Project has fostered about 300 Taiwanese companies to develop more than 220 smart services across 22 counties and cities in Taiwan, benefiting up to 8.54 million people.
