The RCEC-NTUT research center was established in 2017 by integrating cross-disciplinary industry, academia, and research experts in energy conservation and energy storage. The first phase (2018-2022 years) has four main axes: (A) Research and development of innovative energy-saving equipment technology, (B) Research and development of forward-looking industrial energy-saving technology, (C) Research and development of advanced energy management technology, (D) Near-zero energy consumption building energy saving technology research and development; develop residential, commercial and industrial energy-saving technologies. With the goal to solving the government electricity gap and energy conservation and carbon reduction. Because of the government electric power is entering an energy transition period to be a higher rate of renewable energy, and must achieve the 2050 net-zero emission target. We have to save energy to overcome the imbalance between power supply and demand. The center continues the accumulated results of the first phase, the main research axis of the second phase is adjusted to:
