The German inverter manufacturer sees great potential on the island that aims for 20 gigawatts of photovoltaic capacity by 2025.

Kaco now has its own representation marketing the “Made in Germany” technology on the island, where the government plans to install new photovoltaic capacity of more than 18 gigawatts by 2025. At the beginning of the year, the inverter Kaco strengthened its presence in the growth market of South East Asia by appointing a Territory Manager. This announcement set the course for rapid expansion in Taiwan, one of the fastest-growing markets for photovoltaics.

The Taiwanese government is planning to expand the installed photovoltaic power from around 1.5 gigawatts at present to 20 gigawatts by 2025. The short-term goal is to add 1.52 gigawatts in the next year and 6.5 gigawatts by 2020. By focusing on the major expansion of solar power and other renewable energies, sun-drenched Taiwan will be able to complete its gradual withdrawal from nuclear power. The government is intending to invest more than 29.3 billion euros in the project.

This led Kaco new energy to step up its engagement in the region by appointing a Territory Manager in February of this year. The company made use of the market information and contacts obtained through this move to establish a presence in Taiwan very quickly.

The island nation of Taiwan has only limited suitable space available for solar power plants. Of the 20 gigawatts announced, 17 will be generated by ground-mounted systems and 3 by rooftop systems. Although the Taiwanese Ministry of Economic Affairs has prioritised the expansion of transmission lines and associated infrastructure, it must be possible to integrate the solar power plants in all available building, land or coastal areas.

“Inverters from Kaco new energy provide power outputs ranging from small rooftop systems to large-scale megawatt parks. Owing to our integrated system solutions and the continuously high power of the inverters, even under difficult climate conditions, we can satisfy any requirement,” says Stanley Yu.
