“Wind energy has been on the rise in Germany since 2000. Since then, the electricity feed-in rose from 10 TWh to about 126 TWh in 2019, making wind energy the most important renewable energy. With a share of 24.5% of the overall gross electricity generation, wind energy even superseded lignite,” stated Axel Limberg, Chief Representative and Executive Director of the German Trade Office Taipei during his opening speech.
Due to their vast expertise in wind energy technologies, Mr. Limberg considers German companies to be excellent partners for Taiwan’s energy transition efforts. Asked whether the current coronavirus outbreak could seriously impact a closer cooperation in the near future, Mr. Limberg remained positive: “We are delighted that three German companies have decided to support our German Pavilion here at the Wind Energy Asia despite this ongoing crisis. This clearly shows that German companies remain committed to an active participation in the Taiwanese energy transition and that they continue to believe in this market.”
