Interview with Mr. Jaroslav Tauber, Trade Manager of “Tatung-Czech Republic”
Since its founding in 1918 Tatung has become the group Tatung (www.tatung.com). Tatung is a pioneer in the development of a national smart grid in Taiwan and a leading brand for energy saving systems and products. Tatung’s solutions can easily be applied to fields, smart buildings and smart homes, health and surveillance systems. One of the many achievements microgrid system for the Country Pingtung, Taiwan prize Initiative for Energy Smart Communities of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), and the prize for innovation of the Council of Science and Technology of Taiwan.
Eng. Tauber, in which areas does Tatung-Czech Republic develop solutions?
Tatung Czech Republic as a branch of Tatung, was established in 2005 in Pilsen, a factory producing LED (LCD) televisions and computer monitors. Thanks to the global strategy of Tatung Group, two years ago it was transformed into a trade business office in Prague (www.tatung.eu).
Our developments are in the field of intelligent solutions (Smart Home, Smart City, Smart Building), and Internet of Things (IoT), as well as solutions for systems of renewable energy sources, because they help reduce harmful gas emissions associated with electricity production. The main strategy of Tatung-Czech Republic is to spread Tatung products and services of the Group in Europe.
Where does the company coordinate its activities? In which countries do you offer your products?
As I pointed out, we started in the Czech Republic and we have spread the company’s activities in Slovakia, Poland, Hungary, and especially Bulgaria, where we created a small branch with a focus on sales of photovoltaic panels. We participate in the national program "Green energy savings" in the Czech Republic and "Green energy for domestic needs" in Slovakia.
The company offers innovative photovoltaic panels. What are their advantages over others on the market?
Most notably, the high efficiency that can reach 18.3% in monocrystalline and 17% in polycrystalline modules. Also, the PV panels are very resistant to hailstones and static load. And a minimum reduction of efficiency (0.62%), in case of difference in the solar radiation: 1000/200 W / m².
Tatung will participate for the first time in the exhibition in Bulgaria. What will you present?
Predominantly - photovoltaics and smart solutions. In the beginning we will focus on customers who need solutions for PV systems. At the TCZ stand we will also show an innovative teaching system - "StudyFUN".
Who are your target customers? Who do you expect to meet at the stand of Tatung in the EE & RE exhibition 2017?
If we find some partners for pilot projects, then we can say that our participation in this event was successful. We are also coming with a different solution to improve the process of learning in kindergarten and primary school. It is a system - "StudyFUN", which was the 2015 winner of the APICTA Award in the category of e-learning. We have a lot of positive feedback from it in the Czech Republic and we hope that in Bulgaria the situation will be similar.
