The Ministry of Economic Affairs solemnly condemns the people in the media for repeatedly deliberately misinterpreting and disseminating false information in response to the results of the assessment of the referendum energy policy by the Ministry of Economic Affairs. The Ministry of Economic Affairs once again reiterated that it has fully responded to public opinion and is responsible for appraising and implementing the government's powers and responsibilities under the referendum law. There is no illegal veto of the referendum, and there will be no shortage of electricity after two years of current power development planning.
For example, the Ministry of Economic Affairs pointed out that today (20) the Japanese style media column alleged that the government's illegal veto of the results of the referendum and the energy policy that only two years of electricity is sufficient is completely wrong and deliberately distorted. On the same day, President Lin represented the working capital and attended the symposium of the headquarters and industry and commerce groups. He fully expressed his opinions during the meeting. In response to the above two issues, not only Minister Shen has fully explained in the meeting, but the Ministry has also explained it to the public many times. However, President Lin ignored these instructions and still used the distorted statement to vote for the media. The Ministry of Economic Affairs condemned the rumors.
The Ministry of Economic Affairs said that it respects everyone's preference and position on power generation methods. However, in view of the controversy over the past few decades, whether it is nuclear power or nuclear waste, the Ministry of Economic Affairs has clearly stated that it is not government inaction, but objective facts are not feasible. Objective facts, insisting on including this controversial high and actually implementing energy with high uncertainty into the option, will make Taiwan's future energy supply more risky. In addition, the government has only promised that the government will only promise that there will be no shortage of electricity for two years or that there will be a shortage of electricity after two years. It is also a deliberate misinterpretation of the facts stated by the Ministry of Economic Affairs to hold a press conference on the results of the review of the referendum energy policy. The press conference will be open to the public as evidence. You can check the website. Please do not take it out of context and deliberately misinterpret it to mislead the public
(https://www.facebook.com/moea.gov.tw/videos/393194341250662/). In particular, the Department issued a press release on February 1 to clarify that there will be no shortage of electricity after two years.
The Ministry of Economic Affairs once again stated that the results of the three energy referendums at the end of last year have been implemented in accordance with the referendum law. For the seventh case, the firepower can be reduced by 1% in the statutory two years, and the power supply can be stabilized. The eighth case is currently There is no plan for the new expansion of coal-fired units; the 16th case has completed the legal operation, and the provisions of Article 95 of the Electricity Industry Law have expired on December 2, 107. People with different positions should not distorted and spread their own positions. False information misleads the public.
The Ministry of Economic Affairs finally stressed that nuclear power continuation or restart does have its objective facts. At present, our dependence on nuclear power is not high (only 10.1% of nuclear power in 107 years). The government is currently working hard to develop low-carbon gas power generation and regeneration. Energy is the main force of power supply in the future. Electricity is for everyone to use. I hope that all sectors of the society will fully support the development plans of solar photovoltaic, wind power, gas generators and natural gas receiving stations as scheduled, and the current energy policy can be reduced at the same time. Air pollution and reduced carbon emissions can also ensure stable power supply in the future and reduce the uncertainty of future power supply.
