DERs and Delta Delta Exhibit at COP24, 12/3-12/7 (No.144)
Incorporating residential solar, storage, electric vehicles, and demand response technologies,
distributed energy resources (DERs) facilitate city sustainability and transform the energy sector.
Delta’s visualized presentation at the exhibit would embody a future smart city.

Distributed Energy Resources IoT-based Smart Green Solutions to Nurture Energy Efficiency in Cities
Distributed Energy Resources
“Economic Losses, Poverty & Disasters” published by UNISDR estimates there were over 6500 climate-related disasters causing considerable economic loss and impacting the stability of power supply during past two decades. The IPCC special report on global warming of 1.5 °C also indicates renewables should supply 70-85% of electricity by 2050 to avoid the overshoot of 1.5 °C. Thus the off-grid and distributed energy resources will be significantly required for the disaster prevention, reconstruction and energy transition.
Delta’s case in DERs
Namasia Off-Grid Campus
Namasia Ming Chuan Elementary School was totally sabotaged by Typhoon Morakot in 2009. Delta then helped the rebuilding and turned it into a green campus with the energy use intensity less than 7kWh/m2 per year. The entire school has become the first net-zero energy consumption campus in Taiwan by adding solar PV capacity up to 22 kWp, 40kWh energy storage system, and power conditioning system. It can also operate by its off-grid system. Now the school serves as the shelter that has admitted thousands of climate refugees during typhoon.
Delta Americas Headquarters
Located in the City of Fremont, California, Delta Americas Headquarters is a LEED platinum certified building that applies techniques such as solar PV, LED lighting, elevator power regeneration system, and ground source heat pump system. It has reached Net-Zero energy consumption in summertime and will achieve whole year zero consumption next year.
Delta Ako Energy Park
Inaugurated in 2016, Delta Ako Energy Park is a large distributed ultra-high-voltage solar power plant (4.6 MW) in Japan. With Delta’s high-efficient inverters and 1MW energy storage system, the annual electricity generation could reach 4.9 million kWh.
Buildings with DERs Delta built 27 Green Buildings plus 1 Green Data Center
DERs includes energy saving, energy creation and energy storage. Delta’s promotion on green and energy saving buildings starts from 2006, and until today has built 27 green buildings, which span across campuses, residences, corporate offices and facilities. Among the 26 green buildings, there are 12 buildings granted with LEED certification. In 2017, Delta green buildings saved 14.9 million kWh of electricity, which is equivalent to a reduction of 9,268 tons of CO2e. In 2018, Delta collaborated with the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) to build the world’s 1st LEED v4 ID+C (Interior Design and Construction) Gold-certified green data center. This earns Delta two Industry Leadership Awards in Greenbuild China 2018. Dow Jones Sustainability World Index and CDP have also recognized Delta’s leading environmental, social and corporate government (ESG) performance over the years.
EVs with DERs Delta develop extreme fast charging and V2G technology
To facilitate the decarbonization in the transport sector, Delta provides electric vehicle (EV) charging solutions. Recently under the collaboration with US Department of energy (DOE), Delta further develops industry-leading 400 kW EV Extreme Fast Charger (XFC) to enhance the charging convenience. In addition to it, the charging solutions also enable vehicle to grid (V2G), which turns EVs into virtual power plants that supply power for emergency and demand response. To further promote low-carbon transportation, Delta has joined EV100, becoming not only its first member from Taiwan, but also its first electric vehicle (EV) charging solutions provider member.
Executive Director of Delta Electronics Foundation
Shan Shan Guo is the executive director of Delta Electronics Foundation, and leads the foundation to implementing climate actions that include energy efficiency education, green building promotion and widespread eco-mobility infrastructure. She has curated green building exhibition globally and further consolidates these social participation in both domestic and international community, which helps Delta acquire leadership honors in Dow Jones Sustainability Index and Carbon Disclosure Project. At COP21 & COP23, she was invited to German Pavilion and ICLEI side event to share Delta’s endeavors in nurturing green buildings. In 2018, she receives the the Green Leadership Award on behalf of Delta Group at Greenbuild China. She has a Bachelor’s Degree in Foreign Language, from National Taiwan University, and a master’s degree in Integrated Marketing Communication, University of Michigan.
