Solar Energy as A Sustainable Power

2021-11-26

National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University (NYCU) actively supports energy harvesting and renewable power generation, and in accordance with the Executive Yuan’s Two-Year Solar Energy Program, it allowed rooftop energy service companies (ESCOs) to install solar panels on campus buildings to increase on-campus green energy generation.

As of the end of 2020, photovoltaic (PV) power generation equipment with an operating capacity of 429 kWp have been installed on the campus of National Yang-Ming University. According to the standards of Taiwan Power Company (hereinafter Taipower), such equipment can power approximately 150 households. In addition to supplying a building’s electricity demands and reducing carbon dioxide emissions, solar panels can insulate rooftops and reduce temperatures, thereby reducing the power consumption of air conditioners. This PV-ESCO model promotes energy conservation and on-site implementation of energy education.

For Hsinchu Bo’Ai and Tainan campuses, PV equipment with a total capacity of 1194.14 kWp were installed on the. Furthermore, PV equipment with a capacity of 300 kWp are scheduled to be installed on the Hsinchu Guangfu campus. The total power generation across the three campuses will be 1494.14 kWp. These PV systems are connected to the Taipower grid, through which the power generated by the PV systems can be sold. The systems are also expected to conserve approximately 1.875 million kWh of electricity, thereby substantially reducing carbon emissions by approximately 3,385 metric ton.

NYCU is actively striving to implement the sustainable management of a green campus, and it is dedicated to global sustainable development.
