The solar companies jointly held a product launch at the show on Oct. 22, during which a presentation was also given to highlight the competitiveness of Taiwan's solar industry, TAITRA said.
The four companies were Lof Solar, Motech Industries, Neo Solar Power (NSP) and TSMC Solar.
It was the first time that TAITRA has made concerted efforts to promote Taiwan's solar cell industry at the U.S. trade show, which ran in Chicago from Oct. 21 to 24.
The annual show is a major solar power industry event in the U.S. This year it featured almost 700 exhibitors.
At the event, Lof promoted its color solar cells, which have been adopted by Utah State University and Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, according to TAITRA.
Motech unveiled its next-generation high-efficiency mono-crystalline solar cell series, which will enter mass production in the first quarter of 2014.
NSP launched its bifacial (BiFi) solar cells, among others, while TSMC Solar showcased its CIGS (copper indium gallium selenide) solar modules.
TAITRA has been running an advertising campaign on behalf of Foreign Trade Bureau to promote Taiwan's quality products.
A mobile app launched by TAITRA for the advertising campaign has won a NEO Marketing Award from the Business Next magazine. It is the only government unit that has received an award from the magazine this year.
