Taipei, Taiwan – The Renewables Consulting Group (RCG), a sector specialist advisory firm, today announced the appointment of market intelligence and management consulting specialist Chien Huan Li to its growing office in Taipei.
As policies and regulations related to climate change rise to the fore, RCG has increased its team of experts in response. With a background in energy and climate policies, Li’s deep experience in collaborating with government agencies, non-governmental organizations (NGO) and multiple stakeholders domestically and regionally will help our clients as they formulate a response to combat climate change. Li’s responsibilities include policy and legal analysis as well as market strategies.
Before joining RCG, Li worked in the Ministry or Economic Affairs (MoEA) in Taiwan as a specialist in green energy policy. In collaboration with governmental agencies, industry delegates, and think tanks, he assisted the MoEA to coordinate policies and regulations across departments. Before his role with the government, he worked in the Chung-Hua Institute for Economic Research on trade data analysis and market entry strategies for renewable energy and other environmental product exports.
Commenting on the news, Gareth Lewis, RCG’s Managing Director, Asia Pacific, said:
“As climate-related policies and regulations only become more commonplace, it is comforting to have Chien Huan Li on the team. His understanding of legal and economic regulations combined with his prior work as a green energy policy specialist for the Ministry of Economic Affairs, make him an invaluable asset in serving our clients.” – Gareth Lewis, Managing Director, APAC
The Taiwan Bureau of Energy (BoE) recently held a consultation on the Zonal Development (Round 3) regulations, outlining the site application process for offshore wind developers to submit their greenfield sites to the government. This is a further step in the policy development which should culminate in the publication of final regulations in January 2021, kick-starting the next phase of offshore wind in Taiwan. RCG’s strengthened team is well positioned to advise clients on government and stakeholder matters.
The Taipei office, in conjunction with RCG’s office in Tokyo, is leading the acceleration of the firm’s Asia Pacific platform in order to realise its goal of providing a top-tier market intelligence, management consulting and technical advisory service to the renewable sector and delivering long-term value for clients.
