Participants of the forum include leaders and experts from Photovoltaic Green-ecosystem Organization(PGO),Asian Development Bank(ADB), China PV Industry Association, China Renewable Energy Society, Energy Research Institute of National Development and Reform Commission, New Energy Branch of CIITA, China New Energy Overseas Development Alliance etc and many chairmen from JIC Leasing Co., Ltd, CITIC Financial Leasing Co., Ltd, CGN Solar Energy Development Co., Ltd, CMIG, CNE, China Merchants New Energy Group, Kong Sun Co., Ltd and other China's leading PV investment and financing enterprises.


On the first day of the forum, a lot of core figures delivered important speeches. Wang Guiqing, vice president of CCCME and executive director of PV branch, gave a welcoming  speech and pointed out that PV industries in China has made great achievement after a decade of development. Meanwhile, it is necessary to prevent price decline and harm caused by trade remedy and disordered competition of foreign countries. To achieve better effect on “going out” remains a big challenge to national PV industries. The speech caused strong reaction among the people on spot. ZhaiYongping, General technical consultant of the energy department of Asian Development Bank, said China shall insist on the “go out” policy of both manufacture and investors, the two-way method of “half domestic and half foreign”, and the strategy of developing diversified foreign markets. Sun Ronghua, President of Trina Solar in China, Zheng Jiazhen, CEO of GCL, Xing Guoqiang, vice president of Canadian Solar, Wang Yingge, assistant of executive director of LERRI Solar, etc. emphasized the importance of optimizing special technology to forge core competence.


Wang Bohua, secretary general of CPIA and expert of China Strategic Alliance of Industry Technology Innovation of Smart PV, delivered a key-note speech named as “Situation analysis of PV industry in China”. He said China’s PV industry has been on sound development in the first half of this year with intense investment and an increase of installation demand for PV equipment by almost 3 times on year-on-year basis. PV industry has become one of the emerging industries with fastest growth rate and hugest potential. In the past half year, thanks to the positive influence of market, the price decline has been cushioned, despite that a fall after rise may happen in the second half, the tendency of the market remains optimistic. Based on the situation in the first half of the year and features and expectations of the second half of PV industry, Wang Bohua made profound analysis from aspects including polysilicon, silicon chip, components and so on to prove the bright future of PV industry.


Shi Zhengrong, the pioneer of new energy, gave a speech named “build a fun-oriented future that is green and sustainable”, which vividly illustrated the influence of new energy on humans and nature from the technical perspective. Shen Wenzhong, director of the Solar Energy Research Institute at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, gave the speech “the main ‘battlefield’ of the industrialization of silicon solar cells”, proving the importance of technical originality. Li Yuan, president of PGO, spoke up for the cooperation among all PV enterprises against the “cold spell in late spring” and gave suggestions on supporting new energy development. Cao Renxian, chairman of SUNGROW, emphasized the importance of synchronous development of energy storage in his speech “Path to realize high-proportion production of renewable energy”. All of these speeches were excellent with distinct characteristics.


Upon the end of marvelous conference reports, Wang Jin and Shen Wenzhong hosted three groups of high-end dialogues separately, covering over 20 key topics concerning new energy development, such as distributed power station, energy internet, PV equipment, PV poverty alleviation, state subsidies, abandon of PV power and limit of power output, after events of subsidy limitation on June 30, multiple objection from Europe and America, etc, rich content and fierce confrontation of ideas during these dialogues offered the audiences an enjoyable experience.


During these dialogues, Han Qinghao, chairman of CMIG, said distributed energy is the target of future development and suggested a change of thinking to energy internet. Qiu Zhanwei, chairman of Zhejiang CNE, stated that since the subsidy limitation on June 30 was launched, the bidding method to get power station’s quota makes the competition fiercer and the rate of return lower. Cui Yaping, deputy general manager of ZONERGY, a company that develops both domestic and foreign markets equally, called for new ways of cooperation to avoid vicious homogeneous competition. Liu Jidong, chairman of CETC, talked about the course of domestic PV equipment’s development and innovation starting from scratch, from weak to strong, even reaching markets overseas. Zhao Zhenyuan, legal representative of the IT Electronics Eleventh Design and Research Institute Scientific and Technological Engineering Corporation., Ltd suggested successors to learn to head to the new energy field through cooperative and united way. 


Topics in Dialogue (1): Policy, market and innovative development of PV industry

Topics in Dialogue (2): PV, energy storage and micro-network innovative technologies

Topics in Dialogue (3): Investment & financing, operation & maintenance and the mode on how to improve efficiency and innovation of PV plant


On the second day, another four professional sub-forums were organized, among which one was organized by Asian Development Bank concerning “the Belt and Road Initiative” Asian PV market docking. It was hosted by Zhai Yongping , from General technical consultant of the energy department of Asian Development Bank. Guests attended the forum included PV sectors and power investment companies from Southeast Asia, such as Mr. Adviento from Philippines, Mr. Fazlur, Mr. Hakim from Indonesia, etc. A series of discussions were conducted focusing on the potential and challenges of developing China’s PV market in Asia. Zhang Shiguo, vice chairman and secretary general of China New Energy Overseas Development Alliance, said countries along the routes actively support "the Belt and Road Initiative” and the energy policies of countries in Southeast Asia are getting clearer. Southeast Asia is becoming the main emerging market of international cooperation of new energy and the “going global” plan of China’s PVs step by step. But varied national conditions of countries along the routes make the situation more complicated with great challenges and opportunities. The government and PV enterprises of China need to further innovate their ways of exchange and mechanisms of cooperation.


In other three sub-forums, senior executives and technical experts from more than 30 enterprises gave keynote speeches on subjects of technical innovation of high-efficiency battery components, inverters, energy storage, trackers, support frames, design innovation of power stations, investment and transaction authentication of construction of PV plants and innovation of intelligent operation and maintenance.
