The ECCT's Low Carbon Initiative (LCI), following the success of 2017 Europe Taiwan Wind Energy Conf., in 2018 together with partners in government and industry, has arranged this full-day summit to chart the way forward in developing a robust wind energy supply chain in Taiwan. The event will bring together leaders from central and municipal governments from Taichung and Changhua County with experts from Europe and Taiwan to share ideas and best practices on the following topics: 
 
  • 1. “Taichung wind hub” of key content suppliers and manpower: How to make Taichung the regional cluster centre providing quality manufacturers, manpower and services for the wind energy industry.
  • 2. “Supply chain building”: Creating a win-win model and cooperation system and developing a large-scale, cost-effective and standardized strategy for offshore and onshore wind.
  • 3. “Beyond local content”: Pushing forward standardization and certification for wind O&Ms and procurement; learning from overseas advanced onshore and offshore wind equipment standards and smart manufacturing to enhance domestic quality;  exploring how to establish unified standards for wind turbines, components, service, quality control and O&M personnel for Taiwan’s wind and O&M industry. 

The event will also serve as the forum for the signing of a Taiwan-Europe Wind Supply Chain and Talent Training MOU and a Joint Venture Agreement to set up a Global Wind Organisation Training Centre in Taichung Port.
