能源政策調查 逾7成民眾「不缺電」就支持非核家園 | 7 in 10 support non-nuclear energy sources: latest survey

281

TAIPEI (The China Post) – To better understand public opinion on energy policies, the Taiwan Research Institute (TRI, 台灣綜合研究院) recently conducted a survey on Taiwan’s current energy structure, power supply stability, the recent referendum, and nuclear energy issues through a questionnaire this month. The results show that the public has a limited understanding of the aforementioned issue, the think tank said.

為了解民眾對能源政策的意見及接受度,台灣綜合研究院今年3月透過問卷調查,蒐集民眾對當前能源結構、供電穩定、公投回應、以及核能議題的看法。調查結果顯示,民眾對於能源議題的相關訊息理解有限。

According to the survey, most people want more non-nuclear power sources and the reduction of thermal power generation. As for the development of nuclear power, the greatest concern is the potential threat of nuclear waste. Under the promise of a stable power supply, the public is, therefore, inclined towards not relying on nuclear power, TRI said.

大部分民眾對於電力供應來源期望能非核並減少火力發電;至於發展核電方面,調查也發現,民眾最大的危機感是核廢威脅,在供電穩定的前提下,較傾向不使用核能發電。

Meanwhile, up to 58.8% of respondents think that the main source of electricity in Taiwan is produced by nuclear energy, followed by coal-fired power. However, the secondary energy source is gas, of which only 4.3% of respondents think it is one of the main sources of electricity in Taiwan.

調查中有高達58.8%的民眾認為的主要電力來源為核能,其次才是燃煤,而實際上位居第2名發電量的燃氣,僅有4.3%的民眾認為是主要電力來源。

On the issue of eliminating nuclear power, 49.2% of respondents agree with the option. The Taiwan Research Institute pointed out that overall, under the premise of a stable power supply, the support rate for a non-nuclear environment is as high as 72.3%.

在核廢議題上,民眾的同意度有49.2%。台綜院指出,整體而言,在「不缺電」的前提下,民眾較傾向支持非核家園,對非核家園的支持度高達72.3%。
