The first citizen suit in Taiwan seeking a reduction in carbon emissions, this case was filed on February 3rd, 2021.

The plaintiffs are challenging Taiwan's Regulation for Large Power Consumers which sets a goal of transitioning 10% of capacity to renewable energy. They argue that the regulation is in violation of the Greenhouse Gas Reduction and Management Act and the Renewable Energy Development Act, which set a 20% renewable energy goal by 2025.
