2018 Taiwan Solar Show Offers Up Zero Emission, Zero Waste Future To Attendees
August 21st, 2018 by Kyle Field
The shows build on the success of last year’s PV Taiwan Show, which drew more than 10,000 visitors from more than 70 countries. This year, event organizers Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) and SEMI are pushing hard to take the show into the global spotlight in 2018 with its theme of double zeros. The double zeros represent the complementary themes of zero emission power generation and zero waste. The two themes are being brought together in two co-located shows in Taipei that represent the full spectrum of green energy technologies and the circular economy they help foster.
On the energy front this year, 2018 Energy Taiwan will highlight the emerging full circle energy economy that encompasses the renewable future of energy efficiency, sustainable energy generation and energy storage. In recognition of the expansion of the solar industry into these complementary fields, PV Taiwan and the Taiwan International Green Industry Show (TiGiS) will scale up and be rebranded into the new 2018 Energy Taiwan show. Circular Economy Taiwan will be held at the same time at the same facility and will showcase leading waste reduction and localization technologies.
The expanded focus of the two new shows recognizes the holistic nature of the transition to renewables, including solar, with projects increasingly including the complementary disciplines of energy storage and energy efficiency. In Taiwan, the government is encouraging the adoption of future energy technologies with a suite of new initiatives including the “two-year solar power promotion plan,” “four-year wind power promotion plan,” and the “forward-looking infrastructure development program.” These programs are expected to bring an additional 24 billion NTD | $78 million USD to the Taiwanese green energy economy over the coming years.
Energy Taiwan also features industry summit forums that bring together experts in solar, wind, hydro generation as well as discussions on circular cities, and deep dives into the emerging field of indoor air quality monitoring and management. In total, 50 events will highlight emerging trends in renewables and energy at the show, including a number of presentations about cutting edge technologies and trends across the industry.
The Energy Taiwan and CE Taiwan shows will be held from September 19 to 21, 2018, at Nangang Exhibition Center, with up to 600 vendor booths and an estimated 17,000 buyers from domestic and international markets.
The online pre-registration is open now for both Energy Taiwan and Circular Economy Taiwan. In addition, TAITRA is offering travel/lodging to select companies to facilitate attendance based on annual sales revenue. To pre-register and apply for the incentive, drop your info into this form.
