DOHA: Taiwan is set to introduce its globally acclaimed innovative energy saving/generating eco smart glasses to Qatar's property market.
By replacing a building's ceiling and walls with the specially-developed thin-film PV modules, harmful radiation can be filtered out, heat can be blocked, and clean energy from the sun can be generated, enabling Qatar to save or generate an estimated 380KW/sqm/year energy, two Mission leaders of Taiwan Green Energy Solution Providers to the Middle East, told The Peninsula yesterday.
Dr Chuang, Suo-Hang, Vic Chairman, Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) said this cutting-edge green energy solution is increasingly becoming popular across the world, with a growing demand in EU, Japan and South Korea. Another success story is in Switzerland where Taiwan has developed a hundred percent 'zero emission house. The building doesn't need any electricity and in fact it is selling clean energy generated from the Sun, he said.
'It is a total solution for green building. The most important component of this glass is a semiconductor. Experiments have proved that the eco smart glasses can reduce the energy consumption by 30-60 percent. The product is ideal for Qatar, especially when it has embarked on a sustainable development mission, Dr Suo-Hang said.
'We understand there are huge opportunities for our product in Qatar. We are also confident of entering into local partnership to invest in Qatar and set up manufacturing units in the country.
The easy availability of labour force and having strategically located, Qatar is ideal for setting up our manufacturing units so that, besides meeting the local demand, we can easily export our products to the growing demand markets in the Middle East and to the Europe, he said. However, Dr Chuang added a concrete discussion regarding any potential partnership and investments is yet to take place.
'Qatar is an ideal market for our products. We see a large number of glass-covered skyscrapers in Doha. By using our solutions, Qatar can not only save a lot of energy but can beat a lot of solar heat inside the building, said Dr Spencer Yeh of NexPower Technology Corp, the pioneer of thin-film silicon solar PV technology in Taiwan. He said NexPower has tailor-made solutions for Qatar in line with the country's sustainability and energy efficiency goals and in view of its year-round sunshine.
NexPower Technology is a subsidiary of a world-class leading semiconductor foundry, United Microelectronics Corporation.
Dr Suo-Hang and Dr Spencer are in Qatar to lead a delegation of Green energy solution providing companies from Taiwan to showcase their respective products in Qatar.
Dr Suo-Hang said Taiwan's 7,000 companies are exporting their products across the world and its global trade stood at $580bn in 2017.
TAITRA's major functions include market development, strategic marketing, trade Information services, exhibitions, convention sevices, trade education and Taiwan Trade, an e-trading hub service.
