  In compliance with the vision of “TECO GO ECO,” the company has spared no effort in carrying out the R&D and production of energy-saving, environment protection, and high-efficiency products. In addition to consolidating its leading industrial status for heavy machinery and home appliances, the company has also actively forayed into the sectors wind turbine , in demonstration of its aggressiveness for energy and other new businesses, such as electric vehicle components and parts, an effort facilitated by its electric-machinery technological and manufacturing strength. In the future, in line with the spirit of “energy-saving TECO and green technology,” we will fulfill the social responsibility of energy conservation, environmental protection, and sustainable development, thereby playing a pioneer for Taiwan to march into the global green-energy industry.
  According to the “guidelines for energy development” publicized by the Bureau of Energy, MOEA, the nation's energy policy pursues the setup of a energy supply-demand system featuring “safety, efficiency, and cleanness,” reducing energy intensify, CO2 emission, and discharge of other pollutants, for which renewable energy plays an integral part.
  TECO stepped into the realm of wind-power products several years ago and has developed 2kW and 3kW horizontal wind turbines and large-scale 2MW wind turbine , with a plan of continuing development of other models for regions with different wind velocities.
Large-scale win turbine
TFC2000 series is first indigenous large-scale 2MW wind turbine in Taiwan, with the first unit having been installed in Inner Mongolia, which generated 8.1 million kWh of power during 2011-2013. In compliance with regional demand and industrial trend, the company has been developing TFC2000-113, suited for use in low wind-velocity areas, and TDD5000 5MW models, for offshore wind-power generation, on top of the plan of introducing high-temperature super-conducting technology and 10MW and larger offshore wind turbines, with the company's technological roadmap shown as the following:

Small wind turbines
TECO has developed three small wind turbines, with capacities of 400W, 2kW, and 3kW,  suited  for  installation  at  open  plots with strong wind, such as factories, roof of buildings, and farmland. 400W wind turbine is  standalone  alone,  for  such  usages  as landscape road lamp, while 2kW and 3kW models are mostly linked to power grid.

TFC2000 series is based on the design concept of sustainability:
As a substitute for thermal power, wind power can cut CO2 emission and enhance the share of the nation's indigenous energy, in addition to lowering energy intensity.

Recyclable and reusable materials, such as steel and cast iron, account for 60% of the total materials.
Part of power consumption during the production process is recycled for reuse.
The use of permanent magnet in the design for wind turbines, skipping carbon brush, can reduce waste materials and augment the performance of wind turbine.
Certification for compliance with the standards of IEC61400 and the requirement of LVRT for linking up with power grid.

Output of wind turbines and the effect on reducing CO2 emission

  Faced  with global warming and drastic climatic change, nations worldwide have stressed renewable energy, thereby setting goal for its development, in order 

to promote renewable energy and dampen greenhouse gases. The  trend has  been  whetted  by the meltdown of the Fukushima Daiichi power plant in Japan and the increasingly serious air pollution in China. With wind turbine  being  the  renewable  energy  with  the  highest economic benefit, the European Union has aimed to raise the share of wind power in power supply to 50% by 2030.
  TECO has successfully developed own-brand 2MW permanent-magnetic wind turbine, boasting the highest local content rate among indigenous models, which has been shipped to the U.S. market. With complete lineup, models in the series can meet the requirements of strong-typhoon areas and areas of rigorous climate, are applicable universally, thanks to the specification of 50/60Hz, and meet the strict requirements on specifications for linkage with power grid. TECO has also been actively developing 5MW offshore model, kW model, and wind-light complementary model, among others.
  With a foothold  in Taiwan and a sight on China, TECO has blended Taiwan's advantage in quality management with the tremendous demand of China, fostering the formation of domestic wind-turbine industrial chain, spanning casting, stamping, composite materials, electric wire and cable, integrated design and assembly for power system, civil engineering, shipping and maritime engineering, planning and design for wind farm, design and integration for electric machinery, wind power and photovoltaic charging system, and maintenance of wind farm, capable of creating annual output value of around NT$4.65  billion . (calculated on the basis  of 50  2MW wind turbines, 1,000 3kW wind turbines, 1,000 wind-light complementary systems, and 1,000 wind inverters.)
 
Capable of creating annual output value of around NT$46.5 billion in Taiwan
  With petroleum resources gradually exhausting and global warming gaining growing concern, it has become a trend for governments worldwide to develop green-energy and environment-friendly mass transportation vehicles, boosting demand for low-pollution 
hybrid electric cars and pollution-free electric vehicles. The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan estimates that market share of electric vehicles  will top 50-70% by 2030 and 95% by 2050, a trend promising handsome potential for electric- vehicles components and parts, such as motor drive.
  Electric vehicles now mostly employ alternating-current motors, including permanent-magnetic synchronous brushless motor (such as Toyota Prius), induction motor (such as Tesla Roadster), and switched reluctance motor (such as VW), thanks to the merits of high efficiency and powerful output , main reasons for the original extensive industrial applications of such motors.
  In compliance with the global development trend, TECO has made forward-looking deployment in the development of motors and related technologies, including permanent-magnet motors, induction motors, and integrated starter motor/generator hybrid electric car, which are allincluded in the company's product development roadmap. The company has also embarked on the development of direct-drive wheel motor, featuring dynamic auto control. TECO owns various key technologies for the design, manufacturing, and testing of vehicle motors, which have been employed in electric commercial trucks, the electric vehicle s in the produce market of Xilo, in Taiwan's Yunlin county, electric tri-wheel cars in the Philippines, and 21-seat buses, highlighting the solid base TECO has established in the field of vehicle  motors.
