With the aim to build a wireless charging ecosystem using the Qi standard, the agreement was formally signed during a ceremony that kicked off WPC’s seminar and tradeshow held today in Taipei. During the event that attracted more than 800 people, WPC members showcased new wireless charging innovations and emerging applications, along with demonstrations including Qi wireless-fast charging accessories that charge two percent per minute, as well as furniture and kitchen appliances with built-in Qi features.

Under the agreement, the two organizations will promote the Qi wireless charging standard. “In particular, the MOU between TAICS and WPC will benefit the members in TAICS and integrate the opinions from domestic industry to participate in the WPC standard procedure, in hopes to contribute local development with the goal of expanding the impact from Taiwan companies and standards worldwide,” said Mr. Jonathon Tsang, chairman of TAICS.

“With innovations by Taiwanese companies and installation of wireless chargers in a number of hotels and public spaces here in Taipei, Taiwan is one of the fastest growing, wirelessly powered countries.” said Menno Treffers, chairman of the Wireless Power Consortium. “The rapid adoption of wireless charging – with more than 50 million wireless chargers sold last year - is not only driven by improvements in efficiency, cost and convenience, but also by the increasing availability of wireless charger in hotels, offices and public space.”
