TAITRA will lead six Taiwanese enterprises to African Utility Week and POWERGEN Africa, to be held on May 12-14, 2020.
This year marks TAITRA’s first participation. A wide range of products will be found at the Taiwan Pavilion: Solar power system, Solar Module, BIPV, Solar Module Roofing, Solar Charge Controller, Power Supply and Power Control System.
South Africa is among the world's top 10 hard coal producer and exporter. More than 75% of the electricity produced in the country is derived from coal. A switch to more green energy comes as South Africa faces pressure to meet emissions-reduction targets. The enactment of government policy and the decrease in green energy costs both point to develop the renewable energy industry.
In response to green energy development opportunities, Taiwanese companies have created unparalleled renewable energy solutions by taking a research and development-focused approach. This has been successful as the country now reigns as the world’s second-biggest photovoltaic cell producer. The innovation has made it possible for the production of very light panels for rooftop photovoltaic systems and photovoltaic curtain walls that are environmentally friendly and highly efficient.
Each year, TAITRA organizes trade missions to visit various expo and cities in Africa to promote the representative industries of Taiwan, which include automobile parts, hardware, flat panel display, sports equipment, and medical equipment. Beyond providing local enterprises with the unique opportunity to meet with Taiwanese companies in person to explore possible business cooperation, all of the events also serve as a great occasion to establish closer trade relations between Taiwan and 54 countries in Africa.
African Utility Week and POWERGEN Africa is a big success, attracting more than 360 exhibitors from 70 countries and showcasing some of the most advanced products and technologies throughout the 3-day event.
