Abstract—Since the policy of “no-nuclear community” was announced, Taiwan has been on the one-way destined for a change of energy structure. But debates about energy structure never stop here. A team composed of four Taiwan’s universities was born by the duty of finding a way to help citizen to make an informed decision of energy policy and created Taiwan Energy Policy Educational Model (TEPEM). A web with knowledge map of energy, role-playing game, and decision support by TEPEM was developed for a series of teaching tests in this study. As a result, knowledge map is useful to improve the realization of energy. Most decision makers in this study also confirm the necessity of decision support by TEPEM while making a choice of energy policy. But using role-playing game to promote each other’s communication on energy policy is in vain during these tests. A real talk would be more useful to vanish the gap than a visual role-playing game.
