German-Taiwanese Green Building Conference

       The German Trade Office Taipei has organized a delegation trip of four renowned German companies active in the field of energy efficient materials for buildings to Taiwan from November 19 to 23, 2018 as part of the German Energy Solutions Initiative by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi).

      The delegation visit began with the “German-Taiwanese Green Building Conference” today, hosted by the German Trade Office at the Sherwood Taipei, during which these four German companies exclusively showcased their solutions and products regarding energy efficient materials in buildings. Visitors were informed about the latest German energy conservation technologies and had the opportunity to discuss with them about possible future cooperation.

      In his opening speech, Chief Representative and Executive Director of the German Trade Office, Axel Limberg, stated: “We see that around 27% of Taiwan’s total carbon emissions were caused in the buildings sector in 2013 and the primary energy consumption in households used for air conditioning systems alone accounts for a total of around 31%. Taiwan thus has a great potential in implementing cost-effective energy conservation measures which could not only play an important part in contributing to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, but also in the reduction of operational costs of businesses.”
