How the U.S. and Taiwan Can Unite on Energy and Foreign Policy

Jordan McGillis of National Review outlines how the U.S. and Taiwan can unite on energy and foreign policy.

The C3 Take
  • Taiwan has laid out objectives for reaching net-zero emissions by 2050 but is currently heavily reliant on coal-fired power plants.
  • Taiwan can reduce emissions and reach its environmental goals by becoming more reliant on American liquified natural gas.
  • By partnering together, Taiwan can reduce its emissions and the U.S. can grow its relationship with a valuable ally in the South China Sea.

“According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), Taiwan generates 46 percent of its electricity with coal. Though it now has an objective to eliminate emissions by 2050, Taiwan used more coal-fired power from 2015 through 2019 than in any other five-year stretch in its history, setting a coal-generation record of 131 terawatt-hours in 2018.”
