Taiwan-EU offshore wind power certification seminar to kick off on March 14 in Taipei BSMI, MOEA March 5, 2018
Organization: Bureau of Standards, Metrology & Inspection, M.O.E.A., R.O.C.        Publish Date: 2018-05-16 11:24
To deepened the bilateral trade relations between Taiwan and Europe and to promote a third party certification system for offshore wind power in Taiwan, the Bureau of Standards, Metrology & Inspection (BSMI), the Bureau of Foreign Trade, European Economic and Trade Office and European Business and Regulatory Cooperation in Taiwan will co-hold "Taiwan-EU Offshore Wind Power Certification Seminar" on March 14 at National Taiwan University Hospital International Convention Center.

Taiwan is currently making a transition to clean energy. During this phase, the BSMI plays the role of issuing renewable energy certificates and setting up a third party testing and certification system to evaluate the feasibility of renewable energy investment. As the European Union has great experience with renewable energy and is a forerunner in the field of offshore wind farming, the BSMI has teamed up with the European Economic and Trade Office and other parties to organize "Taiwan-EU Offshore Wind Power Certification Seminar". The aim to the seminar is to help Taiwan learn from EU's successful experience in developing offshore wind power and to boost bilateral trade ties between Taiwan and EU. Officer from DG Energy of the EU and European Investment Bank specialist will share their experiences with Taiwanese experts in the field of offshore wind power certification. It is hoped that the discussions at the seminar will strengthen Taiwan's third party certification system and further improve the country's certification technology.

Attendees will be able to learn about offshore wind power certification through the practical information provided at the seminar. Those engaged in the industry can also keep themselves abreast with the latest trend in regulatory compliance and discover new business opportunities.

The BSMI said that offshore wind power is one of Taiwan's developing renewable energy sources. However, due to the high project development cost, financial support from corporate investment and financial institutions is indispensable. Under this background, impartial third party certification bodies are needed to evaluate investment feasibility and risks of offshore wind farm development. Third party certification will touch upon three aspects of wind power development, including project certification, marine warranty survey and due diligence. Setting up a third party certification system, providing green energy construction services and realizing local certification are the major goals of the BSMI.

The Taiwan Strait area ranks first in the current global offshore wind speeds rankings and the western part of Taiwan has all the conditions for developing offshore wind farms. Offshore wind power is indeed an industry with great potential for Taiwan. Regulatory coherence and exchanges of technical knowledge between Taiwan and Europe is expected to expand the trade of offshore wind power between the two parties and promote domestic industry development.

The BSMI said that the seminar took months of preparation and that the European Investment Bank expert specializing in Asian renewable energy investment will make a rare presence at the invite of the European Economic and Trade Office to talk about investments in the renewable energy sector. Representative from banking, offshore wind power industry, organizations offering technical consultancy and those representing competent authorities, research and academic institutions are welcome to attend.
