Elaine Chen co-founded BillionWatts Technologies, a subsidiary under Billion Electric Corp, with a focus on solar PV and energy storage-related products and solutions.

Today, we discussed with this high-energy young entrepreneur the details of today’s energy transformation in Taiwan and its key drivers.

Elaine shared the future of Taiwan’s energy sector and their capacity expansion plans—a huge target of 20,000 MW of solar and 7,000MW of wind by 2025. We learned how the sector is moving from its imported coal and oil-based energy sector to indigenous renewable energy. We also talked about how the transformation will affect the demand for rooftop solar and on-grid battery storage.
