Abstract

Since Taiwan lacks self-produced energy, and is 98 percent reliant on imports for its primary energy. Increasing energy efficiency and energy savings are an essential part of Taiwan's energy policy. This work summarized the energy saving potential of the Taiwanese textile industry from the on-line Energy Declare System in 2008. It was found that the total potential energy savings was thus 64,034 KL of crude oil equivalent (KLOE). The energy saving potential identified was 94,614MWh of electricity, 24,536 kiloliters of fuel oil, and 23,722 tons of fuel coal. It represented a reduction of 192,353 tons in carbon dioxide emissions.
