更洁净的东亚电网

发自悉尼——就在不久之前,核电的未来还取决于亚洲。2015年全球新启用的十个反应堆中有九个在亚洲大陆。但最近韩国和台湾关于“绿色能源”的声明却令人开始质疑核电​​的长期(至少在东亚地区)可行性。事实上,2017年可能标志着该地区对核能的迷恋走向终结——同时开始对其他可再生能源的新一轮追逐。

韩国总统文在寅和台湾“总统”蔡英文分别都制定了野心勃勃的国家议程,在推动可再生能源的同时逐步淘汰核能。虽然两地实际上都走在能源存储和智能电网等绿色行业的创新前列,但对传统燃料的过度依赖却阻碍了面向清洁发电技术的投资。目前韩国和台湾两地分别有22%和14%的能源需求要由核能提供,而如今这一比例都将遭到大幅削减。

虽然一切都还只是规划蓝图,但两地的承诺相结合标志着该区域能源规划正向着更环保,更清洁的技术方面实现重大转变。此外它们还将为可再生能源装机容量投资的增长铺平道路,令自身在区域市场中立于新的竞争位置。

    The Meritocracy Muddle

    Eric Posner

    Although populism in Western democracies is nothing new, resentment toward elites and experts has certainly been on the rise. Does this trend reflect a breakdown in the system, or a system that is actually working too well?
