Carbon sequestration of about 113 Kaohsiung metropolitan Parks, and created a PV industry with a net worth of NTD 28 billion. This study looks at the evidence of achievements the city has made promoting scientifically meaningful architectural aesthetics in its innovative green buildings and energy technology, as well as the success it has seen pushing the policies through a bottom-up structure. In conclusion, it can be said that, using a model based on a project developed by our institute, the Kaohsiung City Government has successfully made the renewable energy become an integral part of Kaohsiung’s lifestyle, creating a threefold win for the government, the institute, and the people of Kaohsiung.
