TAINAN, Taiwan -- November 7, 2013

National Cheng Kung University (NCKU), southern Taiwan, hosts the Institute of
Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) International Future Energy
Electronics Conference (IFEEC), November 3-6, with approximately 300 scholars
and experts from 18 countries including Japan, China, USA, and Australia, to
explore issues on renewable energy and power electronics.

Academician Fred C. Lee who is also the Distinguished Professor from Virginia
Polytechnic Institute and State University, USA, on behalf of the Organizing
Committee, hailed for an initiative by NCKU to host the first international
conference in power electronics and welcomed all the guests from the world to
attend IFEEC 2013 at NCKU, Tainan.

“The time is ready for Taiwan to host international power electronics
conference,” according to Lee who noted that Taiwan is very strong in “power
electronics especially in areas of power supply.”

The Founder and Honorary Chairman of Delta Electronics, Inc., Dr. Bruce Cheng
gave his remark at the opening ceremony on November 4 where he had emphasized
that the climate change to have the potential to affect the life of every
person and every species on the planet.

“If we do not take the problem seriously now, over time, it will become even
more difficult to tackle with,” according to Cheng.

“Governments, business, and everyone must work together to overcome the global
climate crisis,” Cheng said when he had referred the Fifth Assessment Report
(AR5) released by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in his
talk on Green Technologies and Sustainable Development.

The report finds that globally average temperature data showing the warming of
0.5°C already and in the worse cases, increasing of global mean surface
temperature is projected to up to more than 1.5°C in the end of this century
compared to pre-industrial-revolution era, Cheng noted.

He also said, “IFEEC is an international forum for the presentation and
discussion of state-of-the-art technology, energy electronics and related
topics.”

With the focus on energy saving system and renewable energy, IFEEC 2013 is
expecting to come up with solutions to meet this global challenge, according
to Cheng.

IFEEC is organized with 30 technical sessions on topics of renewable energy,
power electronics, converters and motor drivers, according to General Co-Chair
of IFEEC 2013 Jiann-Fuh Chen who is also a professor from NCKU Electrical
Engineering.
