As the topic of offshore wind development has been discussed widely and intensively over the past decade, Taiwan has willingly undertaken the responsibility of preserving the environment as a member of international society by submitting to Paris Agreement and Kyoto Protocol, pledging to become a non-nuclear country by 2025, with an energy mix of 50% natural gas, 30% coal and 20% renewable energy.
In order to achieve this goal, the Chinese International Economic Cooperation Association (CIECA) and Metal Industries Research & Development Centre (MIRDC) has organized collaboratively the “2017 Taiwan Offshore Wind Industry Delegation Visit to the UK & Netherlands” on June 5th – 15th 2017 to learn valuable experience and expertise from the U.K. and the Netherlands to build local supply chain and enhance industrial development in Taiwan.
In London, U.K., the delegation plans on not only visiting the Offshore Wind Energy 2017, the largest offshore wind event in the world that hosts over 400 exhibitors showcasing first class services and cutting edge expertise, but also participating in “the UK Taiwan Offshore Wind Seminar” co-hosted by CIECA, Taiwan Wind Turbine Industry Association (TWTIA) and The Department for International Trade (DIT) to exchange knowledge and technology with wind energy companies in the U. K. as well as seek opportunities for mutually beneficial cooperation. [FULL STORY]
