The UK company Aon, through its arm UK Aon Taiwan Ltd, signed a memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Taiwan’s Changhua County today, 19 October, while another UK business – ODE – officially launched its Taiwan office.
The two events took place as the UK trade mission visiting Taiwan participated in the 12th UK-Taiwan Renewable Energy Conference today.
According to the UK government, Aon’s MoU with Changhua County represents strong collaboration between the UK and Taiwan to successfully develop offshore wind in Taiwan.
During its visit, from 18 to 20 October, the UK delegation will visit Changhua County to learn more about the region’s commitment to green energy development and the environment.
UK company ODE that launched its office in Taiwan has already begun recruiting skilled Taiwanese engineers.
The UK trade and technology mission visits will share the UK’s experience in the renewable energy sector with Taiwan, focusing particularly on offshore wind.
Made up of 50 representatives from 30 UK companies, the mission comprises two separate delegations: an offshore wind mission led by Huub den Rooijen, Director of Energy, Minerals & Infrastructure of The Crown Estate; and a Green Finance Mission, including representatives from the City of London Corporation, the London Stock Exchange, the Green Investment Group and other leading UK green finance institutions.
