As awareness and promotion of environmental protection has continued to increase globally, Taiwan has also been speeding up the pace in responding to this disruptive transformation towards sustainability. Regarded as the locomotive of industrial development in Taiwan, the Industrial Development Bureau (IDB) has been responsible for promoting industry upgrades and transformation. In line with the administration’s "five plus two" industry development plan, the IDB is currently focusing on the development of green energy technology, intelligent machinery, the development of an Asian Silicon Valley, biomedicine, national defense and aerospace, plus the development of a new agricultural paradigm and the promotion of circular economy concepts.
Whilst the transportation sector has been identified as one of the main sectors required for transformation towards sustainability, it is also IDB’s responsibility to encourage fuel economy and carbon reduction technologies in vehicles. In December 2016, the Legislative Yuan extended subsidies on electric vehicles (EVs) for five more years. However, given the critical electricity supply situation in Taiwan, the lack of EV infrastructure and market incentives, the broader roll-out of EVs will take several years. In the interim period, the development of more fuel-efficient vehicles will remain an important focus.
At this event our guest speaker, Acting Director-General of the IDB Jang-hwa Leu together with relevant division directors will give an update on the government’s current and future plans for green automotive initiatives in Taiwan as well as industry plans for smart machinery and green energy. In particular, they will give briefings on the following subjects:
  • Electric / new energy vehicle development plans
  • Smart machinery and green energy technologies
