Delta announced today its founder, Bruce Cheng, addressed the audience at the closing ceremony of the EcoMobility World Congress 2017 with a speech titled “Climate Change Mitigation: Sustainability Development in Mobility”, under the invitation of hosts, the Kaohsiung City Government and the ICLEI (Local Governments for Sustainability).  Mr. Cheng shared today his experience in leading Delta in its development of energy-saving technologies for buildings, transportation and energy storage, with policy makers from about 50 global cities, just as he did in 2015 during Delta-organized side events at the 2015 UN Climate Change Conference (COP21) in which policy makers learned about the contribution to sustainability from Taiwanese corporations.  
Mr. Bruce Cheng highlighted, “Reducing carbon dioxide emissions from buildings and transportation is irrevocably critical for mankind’s goal of containing global temperature rise within 2°C.  According to estimations by the IPCC, the energy savings potential of buildings is 50% to 75%, and Delta’s efforts in creating 25 green buildings across the globe are in line with this research. E-mobility is now the next frontier in the fight for lower carbon emissions, with several countries setting up specific targets implying that 70% of all new vehicles will be electric by 2050. EV charging infrastructure, which is a key factor of EVs to become mainstream, is also one of Delta’s rapidly growing business.”
Delta’s multi-year endeavors in EV charging include the development of AC and DC chargers capable of supporting key regions of the world such as Europe, USA, Japan and China with power output up to 150kW currently (and 350kW and higher in the near future), meaning a 180km range in an EV can be enabled after only a 15-min charge.  Moreover, our charging site management system helps optimize energy use in this growingly critical industry.  Notable success cases of Delta’s EV Charging Solutions include a series of smart AC EVSE (EV Supply Equipment) developed in collaboration with the US Dept. of Energy, and other installations in Holland and Norway.  In Taiwan, the official dealer of BMW selected Delta’s technology for their growing EV charging network across Taipei City and at the Taipei 101 building. 
Street lighting is another critical industry for sustainable cities.  Delta’s LED lighting technology also supports cities across the planet, with up to 470,000 LED streetlights installed, out of which approximately 300,000 ones support cities in Taiwan.  In Kaohsiung, we have installed close to 40,000 streetlights, thus, reaching the highest market share in the city.  Delta has also developed multi-functional streetlights which integrates LED lighting with wireless communication, EV charging and vehicle plate recognition, and digital signage to fulfill various needs while maximizing safety.
Delta built its first green building- Tainan Plant I in 2006 and as of today it has created 25 green buildings across the world.  In 2016, our certified green buildings achieved energy savings of 15.2 million kWh, equal to a reduction in carbon dioxide emissions by 10,027 tons.  Our masterpiece green building, located in California, USA and housing Delta’s HQs for the Americas region, achieved net-zero energy status in the month of July through the combination of our own energy-saving solutions and solar energy generation. One of our most noteworthy green buildings is the eco-friendly campus donated to the Namasia Elementary School following the destruction of its original campus by the typhoon Morakot in 2009. This facility offered an Energy Use Intensity (EUI) reading of only 7, but further installation of solar PV energy capacity and energy storage systems transformed the building into Taiwan’s first net-zero energy campus.   
The EcoMobility World Festival & Congress is organized by the ICLEI every two years and its goal is to nurture new ideas with the international community for sustainability.  The 2017 edition is held in Kaohsiung, Taiwan and extends for the entire month of October.  The Delta Electronics Foundation responded to the invitation of the Kaohsiung City Government by hosting the “Delta Green Building Exhibition”, the largest environmental education event at the Congress and a showcase of Delta’s next-generation technologies to enable low-carbon buildings and transportation.
