German Renewable Energy Experts at Energy Taiwan 2021 - German Pavilion

German Pavilion at Energy Taiwan 

TAIPEI, Taiwan – The German Trade Office Taipei brought leading German renewable energy experts to Energy Taiwan via its service unit DEinternational Taiwan Ltd. Four renowned companies and three partners joined the 5th edition of the German Pavilion, which introduces first-class German technologies and excellent services to the Taiwanese public from December 8 to December 10, 2021.

“Germany and Taiwan both have ambitious goals for the expansion of renewable energies,” stated Mr. Axel Limberg, Chief Representative and Executive Director of the German Trade Office Taipei. “A rapid implementation of renewable energy projects will be decisive for transforming our economies to being climate-neutral. If the political frameworks are appropriate, privately operated companies will be the driving force for a fast transition.”

The power supply in Germany becomes "greener" year by year and the share of renewable energies in electricity consumption has been growing steadily: From around six percent in 2000 to an average of 47 percent in 2020. The increasing trend reflects how clean energy has already become in Germany’s energy mix since the initiation of the energy transition policy by the German government in 2010. Electricity generation from renewable energy sources surpassed lignite and hard coal for the first time in 2019. Wind energy was the largest renewable energy source with a share of 51.6 percent, followed by solar energy with 19.5 percent. In 2020, wind energy even contributed a share of 25.6 percent to the overall electricity generation, making it the primary energy source for electricity generation.

Thus, Axel Limberg emphasized: “Germany is well-positioned in the renewable energy sector. Technologies such as solar cells and wind turbines are being continuously improved. Having developed valuable innovations and highly specialized technologies over the past twenty years, many German companies belong to world market leaders within the value chain. Furthermore, Germany’s newly elected government has set the goal of achieving 80 percent of the power generation from renewables by 2030. To achieve this ambitious goal, an increase of knowledge exchange will certainly be needed. Thus, we are delighted that some of these experts decided to join our German Pavilion at Energy Taiwan to promote the exchange of innovation and experience between companies of both countries.”
