Increasing investments in the development of the renewable energy sector has become an irreversible trend as global warming causes more extreme weather events around the world. Instead of sitting on the sidelines of the international movement for energy transition, Taiwan’s government has opted to aggressively push the deployment of renewable energies. The long-term solar strategy formulated by Taiwan’s Ministry of Economic Affairs aims to increase island’s cumulative installed capacity for solar PV to 20GW by 2025. Out of that total, 17GW has been earmarked for ground-mounted PV power plants, while the remaining 3GW has been allotted to rooftop PV installations. The latest study by EnergyTrend, the green energy division of the global research firm TrendForce, states that Taiwan’s solar market surpassed the GW scale in 2018 with annual installations rising above 1GW for the first time. The rapid growth has also attracted an influx of foreign investments, and the government, in turn, has further raised its annual installation target for 2019 to 1.5GW.
A critical component of any PV system is the inverter, often referred to as the “heart” of the system due to its role in bridging generation and usage. The performance of the inverter can affect the quality of generation and the operational lifespan of the whole PV system, so it is truly the core of stability and reliability. Inverters of high quality not only maintain a steady level of output but also effectively limits the energy loss that occurs during conversion and transmission. The benefits that they provide are thus vital to sustaining healthy internal rates of return for investors. AISWEI, formerly known as SMA China, has inherited 38 years’ worth of innovations from Germany’s SMA Solar Technology with respect to inverter design. AISWEI has also built up 12 years of experience in applying its expertise worldwide. Seeing that the prospect of Taiwan’s solar market is shining ever brighter, the company is eagerly seeking opportunities to make substantial contributions to the growth of the local renewable energy industries.
AISWEI carries the same German gene for aspiring to the highest quality standard. The company vigorously enforces the SOPs that it has established to guide all aspects of its operation, including R&D, supply chain management, production, and after-sales services. Before delivery, every new product goes through a rigorous QA process that involves a series of temperature, mechanical, and environmental stress tests. AISWEI also maximizes value for its clients and guarantee product quality by pushing forward in technological innovations. The percentage of R&D expenditure in the company’s total operating expenditure has been kept above 10% every year.
AISWEI currently offers products not only under the brand Zeversolar but also under its own name. New product lines under the AISWEI brand are based on technologies developed by SMA over the years and will introduce a higher level competitiveness into the market. Possessing a total production capacity of 3GW, AISWEI currently provides a full range of solar inverters from 1 to 80kW. In the future, the company will continue to impress its clients with new solutions that are superior in efficiency and quality as well as economically priced.
With government support, Taiwan’s solar market has exhibited strong growth in recent years. Going forward, AISWEI intends to collaborate with partners in the local solar industry to help sustain this boom. EnergyTrend and AISWEI will be holding a major industry conference on October 16 at the Nangang Exhibition Center in Taipei. The conference, titled “Energy Trends Forum and Technical Seminar,” is among the major programs that will be taking place during this year’s edition of Energy Taiwan, which is the island’s landmark event for the renewable energy industries. Experts from AISWEI, TÜV and ITRI along with EnergyTrend analyst will be at the conference to present their views on the latest developments in inverter technologies and on the key trends in the global solar market.
