Energy and power needs in Taiwan are inadequate. Almost 99% of electric energy sources are heavily dependent on imports of oil, coal, and natural gas. The total power energy was 252.2 TW-hours in 2013, and the electricity generation was contributed by thermal power of 63.4%, nuclear power of 16.5%, co-generation of 15.9%, hydropower of 3.4%, and renewable energy of 0.8%. Within the thermal power of 63.4%, coal generated 34.4%, liquid natural gas 26.9%, and oil 2.1%. Contribution by coal power generation is large. Renewable generations of 0.8% consisted of wind and solar, which are small. However, the renewable generations, which were almost zero in 2000, increased drastically in 2013. Particularly, wind power has considerably developed.
