Green energy technology center approved for Tainan

The Cabinet has approved a plan to set up a green energy technology center in the southern city of Tainan.

The center will open in two phases. A core area housing a research center and a technological demonstration space is scheduled for completion in 2020. Meanwhile, an exhibition space and business area will be ready to open in 2026. The project is expected to gather NT$50-60 billion (US$1.6-1.9 million) in combined public and private investment.

The Ministry of Science and Technology says it plans to bring in makers of lithium batteries, fuel cells, large-scale energy storage systems, and energy-saving motors. Meanwhile, Tainan Deputy Mayor Wu Tsung-jung says that the center will include its own green, low-carbon features including green buildings and a solar power supply system.
