The Ministry of Economic Affairs yesterday established the National Renewable Energy
Certificate center as part of efforts to attract foreign enterprises that pledge to use “renewable” energy when investing or placing orders with local manufacturers.
“Google and some foreign companies used to raise doubts over the ‘purity’ of the renewable energy supply here. Certificates issued by the center could ease such concerns,” Minister of Economic Affairs Lee Chih-kung (李世光) said, adding that both Google and Apple Inc have welcomed the center.
The Taipei-based center is to issue its first renewable energy certificate (REC) before the end of June at the earliest, according to the Bureau of Standards, Metrology and Inspection. [FULL STORY]
