Developing Systematic Innovation Principle to Resolve the Structural Paradox of Nuclear-Free Homeland

Project Details


After suffering the nuclear disaster of Fukushima in Japan, the energy policies and the safety of nuclearpower generation have been revisiting by many countries in the world. In order to efficiently respond thisissue, the government in Taiwan addressed new energy policies toward a Nuclear-Free Homeland in 2025,which include exploring renewable energy, improving power generation efficiency, reducing carbon withsaving energy and implementing electricity liberalization. However, the initiating energy policies results inthe structural paradox of contextual complexity among the economic, environmental and social dimensions.Therefore, this project firstly employs “Theory of Inventive Problem Solving (TRIZ)” to develop systematicinnovation principle for resolving the structural paradox of the energy policy. Secondly, the systematicinnovation principle of Nuclear-Free Homeland will be further evaluated by Decision Making Trial andEvaluation Laboratory (DEMATEL) for identifying the causal relationship and degree of key influenceamong the innovation principles. The research result of this project will propose the key decision guidelinesfor helpfully fulfilling the prospect of nuclear-free homeland in Taiwan.
