Hon Hai Precision Industry Co.’s rescue of Sharp Corp. promises to bolster the Taiwanese electronics maker’s ambitions for a bigger role in clean energy in some of the world’s most polluting countries while also providing a firmer footing in Japan.

Hon Hai, also known as Foxconn, which reached a deal last week to take control of Sharp, has previously announced plans to improve energy efficiency at its factories and introduce more solar power in China and India.
