It is powered by 24-hour-non-stop off-grid renewable energy system, also widely used in bicycle rental station, integrates solar pv’s power system, storage, and management. These features make it suitable for playing a phenomenal role in the future’s power system.
Several forums will be held in conjunction with the Show, covering issues including energy saving, carbon reduction, water industry, smart grid technologies. 2015 Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Summit will look into the imminent trend towards greening of Taiwan industry, as the Financial Supervisory Commission requires listed companies to issue CSR reports.
