The Bureau of Energy (BOE) held the "Renewable Energy Week 2020" exhibition at Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center from October 14 to 16. President Tsai Ing-Wen said in her opening speech that the government is actively developing renewable energy to reach the 20% target by 2025. She also emphasized that the renewable energy trading system and Taiwan Renewable Energy Certificate (T-REC) have been in placed to accelerate solar photovoltaic deployment to meet the 20 GW target by 2025.

The exhibition, "Renewable Energy Week 2020," was jointly held with "Energy Taiwan," which featured 4 themes - solar photovoltaics, wind energy, hydrogen & fuel cells, and smart energy storage. President Tsai, Minister of Economic Affairs Wang Mei-Hua, Director-General of the Bureau of Energy Yu Cheng-Wei, and other VIPs all attended the opening ceremony to kick off the joint exhibition.

To facilitate renewable energy deployment, President Tsai stated that comprehensive planning has been developed to tap into our renewable energy resources and overall strategy consisting of five principles, including "technological maturity and feasibility", "cost-oriented", "phase allocated for balanced development", "driven the industrial advancement" and "adaptable electricity price rise". Thus, solar PV and offshore wind energy have become our main focuses of planning.

President Tsai noted that the substantial progress has been made for T-REC between Orsted and TSMC, who have signed a corporate power purchase agreement (CPPA) to offtake the production from Orsted's 920 MW offshore wind farm, and for both "Shalun Green Energy Technology Demonstration Site" and "Marine Technology Industry Innovation Zone" projects, which are now near completion. The Executive Yuan also established an inter-ministerial taskforce in September 2020 to accelerate solar photovoltaic deployment to meet the 20 GW target by 2025. By 2025, the government expects the offshore wind to generate NT$1 trillion in investments, NT$1.2 trillion in output value, and 20,000 job opportunities, which will be an important milestone in the development of Taiwan's energy transition.

To encourage enterprises to develop solar photovoltaic products of high performances and reliable quality, optimize the setting for solar photovoltaic installation, and increase the competitiveness in the international market, the exhibition selects winners of the annual "Top Solar Award" and "Taiwan Excellent PV award;" this year, President Tsai was there to honor the winners.

There are four categories in the Top Solar Awards. Bank SinoPac and International Bills Finance were awarded in the category of Excellent Financial Services, TE Electrical Engineering for the Good System Manufacturers, ChainWin for the Excellent Small System Awards, TE Electrical Engineering and SUNEDGE PV Technology for the Excellent Medium and Large-scale System awards.

For Taiwan Excellent PV award, TSEC, AUO Optronics, Win Win Precision Technology, United Renewable Energy were recognized in the category of the Solar Photovoltaic Module, and TSEC and United Renewable Energy in the Solar Cell category.

BOE said that Renewable Energy Week 2020 was the place that showcased the enabling renewable energy policy, its achievements, and the dedicated effort made by central and local governments. Therefore, it organized two pavilions: "BOE Green Energy Pavilion" and "Municipal and County Pavilion". The former presented the policy and goals, the key R&D technologies, and the results of promoting green energy, and the latter presented the achievements made from the joint efforts of the central and local governments in green energy promotion.

The exhibition hosted several sharing sessions and outcome presentations, to facilitate close interaction with the visitors, so they gain a deeper understanding on the strategies and results of Taiwan's energy transition, and thus participate in the development of green energy, ultimately achieving environmental sustainability. Also, BOE launched the "Marine Technology Industry Innovation Zone" to support the offshore wind power industry, focusing on "Offshore Wind Power training for professionals" and "Marine Technology and R&D" to promote Taiwan's emerging marine industry and add value to local businesses.

BOE hoped that this exhibition can mobilize the government and all sectors to work together, turning domestic demand for renewable energy into green energy development momentum that drives Taiwan into becoming a hub for international renewable energy investment. Furthermore, in aim to make Taiwan an "Asia-Pacific green energy center", the government established a national team to enter the international supply chain market after training in the local market, enhancing the productivity and value-added of Taiwan's green energy industry.
