ECCT CEO Freddie Höglund led a delegation of ECCT members to visit Dr Chang Chuang-chang, President of the Chung-Hua Institution for Economic Research (CIER, 中經院 張傳章院長) to exchange views on renewable energy trading and offshore wind investment, and discuss bilateral collaboration on the forthcoming Global Offshore Wind Summit Taiwan (GOWST) 2020 that is being organised by the ECCT’s Low Carbon Initiative (LCI) and the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC).
At the meeting, Dr Chang, who was the previous vice chairperson of the Financial Supervisory Commission (FSC), shared his past experiences of advising local insurance companies to direct investment to the offshore wind industry, and how Taiwan promotes corporate governance synchronised with Sustainable Development Goals and renewable energy development. Dr Liang Chi-yuan, Chair Professor of CIER, stressed the urgency of nurturing talent in Taiwan in project financing to reduce the risks of offshore wind investment. In this regard, he said that Taiwan could draw on experience from Europe in the use of green certificates and renewable energy trading.
