Taiwan's Investment Commission has offered local solar energy firms a list of counterparts in Germany that have gone bankrupt recently and are currently soliciting investments from Taiwan makers.
Due to severe price competition in the solar market, many Germany-based solar firms have declared bankruptcies and are in need of investment. Considering the fact that Taiwan has a well-developed solar supply chain, by acquiring these Germany-based firms, Taiwan-based peers can obtain technologies and local distribution channels.
The Germany-based firms that are being solicited are Blue Chip Energy, Arise Technology Deutschland, Solar Millennium, SunConcept, Ralos New Energies, Solarhybrid, Odersun, Q-Cells, Soltecture, Solvello, Invetux Technologies, Solarwatt, Centrotherm and GSE Deutschland.
Others include Sunways, which has been acquired by China-based LDK and Scheuten Solar, which has been acquired by Aiko Solar in China.
Some solar firms in Germany have been expressing interest in receiving foreign funding such as Conergy, a Germany-based solar firm that recently announced that a China-based firms will procure 30% of its shares.
