TAIPEI, November 8, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Delta today announced its participation in the 27u Conference of the Parties (COP27) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) held in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt. This year, Delta will host an official side event, participate in the Action Hub section of the Conference and have a booth at COP27 Blue Zone to share with delegations from around the world its solutions and initiatives, which help ensure the resilience of the electricity grid and coral restoration for the islands. Through the video demonstration of these events, it will not only show a successful case where Delta’s energy storage system stabilized Orchid Island’s power grid, but also the achievements of a coral restoration project that began on Delta’s 50th anniversary. At today’s press conference at TaipeiDelta representatives also shared first-hand observations from COP27.
San San GuoVice President of the Delta Electronics Foundation, said: “Delta is constantly innovating to create solutions capable of helping humanity achieve its sustainability goals. As an official observer to the UNFCCC, the Delta Electronics Foundation has participated in the COP for 15 consecutive times and has hosted or participated in 16 events to share its solutions for reducing carbon emissions and climate adaptation to the world. In this year’s side event, we will discuss the energy transition with the local authorities of two islands Spain. In the face of climate disasters, Delta developed an energy storage solution to enhance resilience and reduce the carbon footprint of Orchid Island’s power grid. At the Action Hub, Delta will share the adaptation methods to successfully restore approximately one thousand corals, which are responding to an ocean restoration program that the host country, Egypt, plans to launch. We will also discuss key issues such as marine biodiversity conservation and the development of blue carbon with representatives from the Ocean Biomolecular Observing Network (OBON), the Environmental Justice Foundation (EJF) and experts from the National Museum of Marine Biology and Aquarium. “
Paul Ai, Senior Director of Delta’s Energy Systems Solutions Division, said: “Extreme weather events often disrupt the islands’ independent power grids, which certainly becomes a major challenge for local governments. Delta’s energy storage systems in Kinmen Island and Orchid Island have enabled grids to supply power within 0.2 seconds to avoid outages.We will share these milestones with representatives of the international climate community and island authorities to ultimately provide highly resilient and environmentally friendly decentralized electricity grid solutions to their communities.”
Wim ChangCEO of the Delta Electronics Foundation, said: “If global warming increases by 1.5°C, 70% to 90% of corals will disappear. Therefore, Delta will share the achievements of the coral restoration collaborative project with experts from the National Museum of Marine Science and Technology, the National Museum of Marine Biology and Aquarium and non-governmental conservation groups to exchange views on how to restore corals with technologies, including coral nursery equipment jointly developed by Delta and our partners to rapidly restore coral ecosystems threatened by ocean warming.”
Apart from reviewing the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) of various countries, COP27 will focus on discussions on the loss and damage mechanism for vulnerable countries. The Delta Electronics Foundation has participated in COPs for several years and has shared the latest negotiation trends and carbon reduction knowledge with its stakeholders in order to accelerate the development of solutions that help mitigate the environmental impacts caused by climate change.
