Project for Promoting and Managing Energy Conservation Focus Center

Project Details


The Energy Conservation Focus Center (ECFC) program is based on the National EnergyProgram-Phase II (NEP-II) and aims to plan the future energy saving technology development with theview point of industrialization. The program in particular focuses on those which can be industrializedwithin 5 to 10 years, helpful to increase local energy supply by 5~10%, and decrease carbon dioxideemission by 5~10%. Besides, based on the technology breakthrough and related action package, it alsoaims to help the government reach the targets listed in the Sustainable Energy Policy to lower at least 50%of the energy density by 2025 (with 2005 as the reference year) and reduce the carbon dioxide emission ofyear 2025 back to the level of year 2000.The Energy Conservation Focus Center program covers from the development of key componentsand modules, to the RD and service of the energy saving total systems. In residential/commercial Track,with the aim of realizing zero/low energy consumption building and applying virtual power plan demandmanagement, the focus includes research, development and integration of air conditioning, lighting,equipment and smart control. In industrial Track, the focus includes increasing the efficiency of utilitysystem such as motors, air compressors, blowers, pumps and boilers. In addition, the system control willbe optimized and the energy saving of production systems will be improved. The evaluation of districtenergy system will be also performed. In transportation Track, the focus includes the development of highefficiency transportation system, electric propulsion, energy storage, light weight, and intelligent systems.To scale up the effectiveness of energy conservation on campus, Campus Energy Conservation Track aimsto build high energy-efficient cloud data centers and advocate that Taiwan educational institutions migratetheir IT services to cloud data centers for energy saving and better utilization of resource sharing. Ourtactic focuses on provisioning popular campus services by green cloud data centers to attract educationalinstitues at all levels in Taiwan to adopt cloud solutions so to reduce power consumption and carbonemission by IT-related equipment on individual campus.Overall, the project will work out strategies for theindustrialization of the energy saving technology and help achieve the objectives of energy saving policy.
