||Taiwan lack natural and energy resource, need to import 99.3% energy. Due to the traditional high-carbon energy also supply from abroad, its supply will be impacted by international demand and production, price fluctuations, and the international politics. In recent years the international oil price surged upward, business costs were constantly raise.|
In this study, some small and medium businesses are taken as objects in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. In this investigation, understand the application of energy resource in those businesses, different industries have their attention to other items and differences, it can be seen on those small and medium enterprises in the concept and practice by measuring and computing power consumption.
Research Methods: First, to explore the international and domestic energy and policy and the related energy research literature, interview the small and medium enterprises and observe the way of energy usage, and provide the improving solution, questionnaires and field measurements made on those enterprises, to record the response, investment willingness and problem for energy improving, statistical analysis and get the conclusion. The results showed that the prevalence among the small businesses’ waste of energy, there is many invalid lighting, it is the room to improve the installation of reflective shade to effect the lighting, even replace the lamps (T8) to lamps (T5) with reflective shade, then reduce the use of lamps and power, indirectly to reduce the power consumption of air condition.
This research also found there is considerable room to improve the light in the refrigerated cabinet. The traditional fluorescent lamps(T8) be used in the refrigerated cabinet. The performance is low and produce high temperature, then the refrigerated cabinet shall expand more power to reach the set temperature, if change those lamps to LED lamps could immediately reduce the loss of electricity bills.
Extension of this study, there is a great improvement in the domestic building and enterprises on lighting application, it could reduce a lot of power consumption by detailed observing, detected, and improving engineer to remove lighting waste, and thus achieve carbon reduction targets by 20% of the electricity.
