National Taiwan Project - Air Conditioning Facilities for Every Campus

The Challenge

Considering the breadth of our project, the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Economic Affairs, the Executive Yuan Engineering Committee, and the Taipower Group will work in collaboration to establish a project task force. The task force will ensure consistency of equipment specifications, prepare procurement and bidding documents, and support government implementation. The task force’s ultimate goal is to resolve gradual difficulties that schools may encounter during the project, including price inflation of raw materials service capacity with a limited number of available technicians, and material shortage.

The Solution


To accommodate for the increased electrical consumption needed, the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Economic Affairs concurrently released a nationwide program to install solar energy on campuses. By 2022, photovoltaic units installed on campuses to reach generation of 340 MW will surpass the estimated consumed amount by 1.45 times. Regarding additional costs deriving from the implementation of air conditioning units in schools, nationwide campus electrical and maintenance fees will be included in the Executive Yuan’s general grant beginning 2022.
