APO Approves Subsidy for Taiwan-Lao Cooperation Project

The Asian Productivity Organization (APO) has approved the subsidy for a demonstration project in Laos on April 20th. The project includes the establishment of the first on-grid rooftop solar power system installed at a government building in Vientiane, the capital of Lao PDR. This power system is expected to be the basis for a renewable energy training course to be introduced to small and medium businesses in Laos.

With no shading from nearby constructions, the roof Center for Clean Production (CPC) within the Ministry of Industry and Commerce campus is chosen to be the primary solar power system installation location.

The renewable energy cooperation project was initiated by the Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) of Taiwan. Through the APO international exchange platform, Taiwanese and Lao experts on green energy have successfully established communication on project cooperation opportunities. This year, ITRI technology experts and Taiwanese solar energy businesses will work closely with the Department of SME Promotion of Laos in installing the solar power system, promoting renewable energy initiatives, and advancing green productivity in Laos. The cooperation project is expected to conclude by the end of 2015.
