Delta Shared Energy Storage Technology and Coral Restoration Initiative at Side Event and Action Hub of COP27


The Delta Electronics Foundation hosted an official side event and discussed energy transition with the local authorities of two islands of Spain.

The Delta Electronics Foundation has participated in the 27th Conference of the Parties (COP27) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change held in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt by hosting a side event and an Action Hub event on November 16. This year, Delta focused on two "island" issues, climate resilience and ecological adaptation, and shared its endeavors with the international community.

Wim Chang, CEO of the Delta Electronics Foundation, stated, "As the proportion of renewable energy supplied gradually increases, accelerating the establishment of a more resilient decentralized energy system is one of the hot topics at COP27. The Spanish island governments' representatives emphasized that technology was the key to achieving an energy transition. As a leader in energy-saving technology, Delta’s energy storage solutions are able to support the energy system when a circuit breaker trips, manage overall demand to eliminate short-term demand spikes, and overcome power supply bottlenecks, while being able to be tailored to local conditions, thereby helping stabilize the power grid. We shared with the international community how we improved grid resilience in Kinmen Island and Orchid Island with technology."

The Delta Electronics Foundation decided on the topics of this side event and invited the Spanish island governments to exchange ideas about the issue of the island energy transition with each other. At the event, Pep Malagrava, DG Energy and Climate Change Government of the Balearic Islands, emphasized their renewable energy goal of 35% by 2030 and 100% by 2050 for the whole islands. This means an acceleration of renewables within 200MW per year until 2030, reaching 1600MW. Thanks to innovative solutions, such as using green hydrogen for energy storage, we are also looking for new ways to produce green electricity, such as off-shore wind and wave energy.

On the same day, the Delta Electronics Foundation also held the Action Hub in Blue Zone, which we applied for hosting for the first time and as the only Taiwanese organization that has passed the qualification review. the Delta Electronics Foundation shared its coral restoration initiative with the international climate science community in collaboration with the National Museum of Marine Biology and Aquarium, the Partnership for Observation of Global Ocean (POGO), and the Environmental Justice Foundation (EJF). High temperature-tolerant coral genes and blue carbon ecosystems were also part of the event discussion, which received enthusiastic responses from international opinion leaders.
