Carbon Reduction, Clean Energy, the Rising Green Energies- Beyond the Nuclear Energy in INER

The Institute of Nuclear Energy Research (INER), established in 1968, is a government agency with a history of credibly safeguarding dedicated to the research and development (R&D) on nuclear safety, nuclear facility decommissioning, radioactive waste treatment and disposal technologies. Moreover, INER also bears the mission of developing radiopharmaceuticals for the public well-being. For 49 years, results of INER’s endeavors have received high recognition. Nowadays, Taiwan’s energy policies are ensuring nuclear safety and waste reduction, building up green energy and a low carbon environment, and working eventually toward creating a nuclear-free homeland. In conformity with the national energy policy, INER has expanded its researches in recent years to including the development of green energies such as new and renewable energies, energy conservation and carbon emission reduction, in addition to participating in the energy-related economic policy research.

In compliance with the government’s reorganization plan, INER will become an affiliate to the “Ministry of Economic and Energy Affairs” under the new name-the “Institute of Energy Research.” We at INER will continue to abide by the government’s directive in the implementation of our country’s energy policies. Reorganization signifies a new starting point, a new assignment, and a new mission for us. With creative thinking, pragmatic spirit and enthusiasm, we have set our goals to improve our professional knowledge, to put through innovation and to offer service so as to provide the best solutions to the energy-economics related issues of the country. 

We at INER are engaging in comprehensive evaluation of the needs of the country and contributing for endeavors to advancing toward the objective set by the government policies. With substantial experiences in research of energy technology and strategy analysis that we have accumulated, we are committed persistently to our vision and strive to be the research institute which provides complete strategy and technological solutions to the nation’s energy security, environmental protection and ultimately the well-being of its citizens.
