Text by: Corporate Communications

Delta, a global provider of power and thermal management solutions, organized an official side event today, at the Katowice COP24 Climate Change Conference in Poland, to reflect on the role of distributed energy resources in advancing the energy resilience of cities. Delta’s perspective as a technology provider was complemented in the event by the contributions of the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group, the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) and the Japan-based Renewable Energy Institute (REI). Vice Chairman of the Delta Electronics Foundation, Mrs. Shan-Shan Guo, highlighted practical cases in which Delta has enabled distributed energy solutions capable of sustaining energy resilience. More than a hundred influential opinion leaders and policy makers from around the world offered valuable views during the event. 

While addressing the audience, Mrs. Shan-Shan Guo said, “The main benefits of distributed energy resources technology include demand response, peak shaving and load shifting. Delta’s smart green solutions cover energy storage, building energy management and vehicle-to-home/vehicle-to-grid (V2H/V2G) EV charging that together can enable distributed energy applications to not only enhance the energy resilience of cities, but also to contribute to the net-zero emissions by 2055 target indicated in the latest IPCC Report.”


Vice Chairman of the Delta Electronics Foundation, Mrs. Shan-Shan Guo, highlighted practical cases in which Delta has enabled distributed energy solutions capable of sustaining energy resilience.

On December 10, as part of Delta’s events parallel to the 2018 UN Climate Change Conference (COP24), Delta held a Seminar Event in Krakow for key stakeholders, an audience that included more than 50 local customers, channel partners and media. Delta’s senior vice-president and general manager of ICTBG, Mr. Victor Cheng; and chief brand officer and vice Chairman of Delta Electronics Foundation, Ms. Shan-Shan Guo, joined our Delta Poland colleagues to share our endeavors in fostering sustainable development worldwide.

In his keynote presentation, Victor Cheng highlighted Delta’s strengthened capabilities in regards to the integration of IoT-based smart green solutions that are cementing the pillars of sustainable cities, such as smart factories, intelligent green buildings, microgrid-supported EV charging infrastructure and eco-friendly data centers. 

Shan-Shan Guo elaborated on Delta’s initiatives to become a world-class corporate citizen, such as our participation in the COP conferences since 2007, including this year’s COP24 here in Katowice, Poland. At COP24, Delta emphasized how distributed energy sources can enhance energy resilience. Shan-Shan ended her presentation by echoing the heartening thoughts of Polish poet Wislawa Szymborska“We should have started from this: the sky”, which remind us all of how essential is protecting our planet.
