Taiwan’s Bureau of Energy under the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) is planning to invite Chinese government officials responsible for making renewable energy policies to attend a solar energy symposium tentatively scheduled for early 2009 in Taiwan, in an attempt to foster cooperation with the China government to promote the development of Taiwan’s solar energy industry including Taiwan-based solar energy makers’ investment in production in China, according to industry sources.

The Bureau of Energy confirmed the plan and indicated that it is in line with the government’s two flagship projects to promote solar energy in Taiwan. The Taiwan government hopes the China government can help through generating demand for solar energy in China which will in turn benefit Taiwan-based makers, the industry sources pointed out.

Taiwan-based solar energy makers’ investments in China
Motech Industries : Is establishing a solar cell factory with annual capacity of 65MWp in Kunshan, eastern China
