The conference focused on the developmentand cooperation in offshore wind power, building-integrated photovoltaic technology and other fields. Enterprises from mainland and Taiwan signed a number of cooperation agreements on wind power equipment investment and technology transfer, anti-typhoon blade research and development and photovoltaic power plant construction.
Taiwan solar photovoltaic industry has developed on a large scale and achieved 200 billion New Taiwan dollars, roughly 40 billion yuan, of output value in 2010.
Taiwan considers the development of green energy industry to be an important measure to promote economic development, and has proposed the "Dawning Green Energy Industry Program" to support the construction of 1 million photovoltaic roofs, the development of offshore wind power and the continuous expansion of photovoltaic manufacturing industry.
