    Department of Environment Protection held "Energy-saving Championship" to evaluate autonomy energy-saving measurement for participants. Those evaluated as "Excellence" would be appraised publicly to be the models for energy saving and carbon reduction.
  4. Holding activity to encourage high-energy-consumption industry to save energy.
    Development of Economic Development held energy-saving award programs for high-energy-consuming industries such as hotels and department stores, and publicly awarded and praised those participants with effective and excellent measurement and performance of recycling and greening.
