Taiwan Textile Research Institute & Delta Electronics Cooperate On Advanced Energy Storage Technology

September 21, 2008 by Jeff Shepard

Taiwan Textile Research Institute (TTRI) and Delta Electronics, Inc. announced their cooperation in the field of flexible energy storage textile and advanced energy storage technology.

Currently the components used for energy storage are solid and non-flexible. TTRI states that it has leveraged their expertise to integrate textiles with energy storage materials to develop what is described as an innovative product that is flexible, stores energy efficiently, and is also affordable. Delta states that it will use this new technology to develop a whole new range of applications for energy storage products.

"We are dedicated to developing new technologies and materials to help the textile industry create new business opportunities," said Lien,Jung-shen, TTRI’s Executive Vice President. "The development and commercialization of carbon fiber is a new direction that will bring added value to the textile industry. Together TTRI and Delta will create new and innovative solutions that will benefit both the electronics and the textile industries."

Mark Ko, President & Chief Operating Officer of Delta Group remarked, "We are very pleased to introduce this new technology from TTRI. Our cooperation will develop a variety of energy storage products for various applications. These will save energy and reduce carbon emissions in line with Delta’s mission: ‘to provide innovative, clean and efficient energy solutions for a better tomorrow.’ Cooperating with a domestic professional research center will not only support local development and commercialization of research, but it will also establish synergies between industry and research institutes."
