The Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) and the European Chamber of Commerce Taiwan (ECCT) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on joint activities to support offshore wind development in Taiwan.
The organisations will focus on developing opportunities and areas for cooperation through joint advocacy initiatives and other activities.
GWEC and ECCT said they shared a view that the promotion and the adoption of sustainable energy are paramount to help Taiwan reduce its carbon emissions and enable the energy transition.
“As the voice of the global wind industry, GWEC acts as a bridge between the wind industry, policymakers and other stakeholders in emerging markets in order to build new thriving wind markets and reach the world’s decarbonisation goals. This mission supports ECCT’s efforts showcasing the best European low carbon and clean energy solutions and practices in Taiwan”, GWEC said in a press release.
The European Chamber of Commerce Taiwan promotes the interests of European companies operating in Taiwan through proactive engagement with government and institutions, and by providing a platform for business networking and development opportunities.
“We are certain that this agreement will strengthen the future prospects of offshore wind growth in Taiwan, by collaborating efforts of both organisations to drive the energy transition in Taiwan through information exchange, organising official industry events and other mutual advocacy activities to unlock new opportunities for offshore wind in Taiwan”, GWEC’s press release states.
