Baden-Württemberg International (bw-i), in cooperation with the German Trade Office Taipei, is organizing an delegation trip for Taiwanese decision-makers and business experts, focusing on Smart Grids: Grid Integration of Renewable Energies. The trip is part of the the Energy Export Initiative by the Federal ministry of Economic Aggairs and Energy (BMWi). 

The planned delegation is set to visits to renowned companies, research institutions and projects, after the kick-off event on 16 April at the Fraunhofer Institute for Chemical Technology ICT. The event will feature lectures by German experts and an introduction to the market and framework conditions for the use of renewable energies in Taiwan. The lectures will also include a guided tour of the ICT. The event provides an excellent platform for participants to network and meet new business partners. 


Germany is Taiwan's most important trading partner in the EU. The Taiwanese government has declared the energy transition as one of the top goals, defining three main goals:

  1. Phasing out all nuclear power plants by 2025
  2. Reduction of greenhouse gas emissions to 50% of the levels of 2005 by the year 2050
  3. Increase the share of renewable energy sources from currently 5% to 20% by 2025.

The expansion of an intelligent power grid was decided in 2012 as the so-called "Smart Grid Master Plan". Approximately 20 years are estimated for the completion the smart grid infrastructure project.

As Germany is a leader in the field of efficient energy supply and smart grid technologies, Taiwan offers excellent sales and collaboration opportunities for German companies in the field of network expansion as well as electricity storage, generation, and consumption.

The Taiwanese delegation of Taiwanese will be traveling in between Germany from the 16th to 20th of April 2018.
