Those PV scientists who are from the frontiers of research and manufacturing will share their expertise on the cutting-edge technologies of PV power.


The highlights of SNEC2016 include:


Ø  The Solar Leaders Dialogue will invite high-level representatives from industry associations in Europe, Asia and North America, CEOs from leading PV companies, industrial experts and scholars, participants from market research institutes, financial institutions and media, as well as the public to discuss extensively on the sustainable development of the solar industry, collaboration and developing strategies for the Asian, European and North American markets.

Ø  The Scientific Conference provides an excellent platform for the world's PV experts and scientists to showcase and share the latest developments in solar energy technologies. The conference programme encompasses a wide scope of PV technologies, ranging from silicon feedstock, PV materials, cells, modules, systems and quality assurance to smart grid technologies. The world's top PV scientists along with CTOs from leading PV companies have been invited to join the International Scientific Committee as well as presenting on the cutting-edge technologies of solar energy at the conference.

Ø  The Global Solar Council (GSC) was launched on December 6 2015 in Paris by the leading regional and national solar associations to unify the solar power sector at an international level, share best practices and accelerate global market developments. The next GSC Board Meeting is scheduled to be held on May 24 during SNEC2016. The founding members include Asian Photovoltaic Industry Association, China Photovoltaic Industry Association, National Solar Energy Federation of India, Solar Energy Industries Association, SolarPower Europe (formerly European Photovoltaic Industry Association), and so on (listed alphabetically).

Ø  The Global PV Financial Summit will launch an important topic: New energy and Internet Finance, which is not to be missed for the investors who would like to enter the markets in Chinese inland and in Asian countries around China and enter other newly developing markets as well as for the PV entrepreneurs who would like to have a long-term and sustainable development. The summit will discover how to deeply merge the three elements: Finance, New energy and Internet, how to tap their own potentials to improve each other, thus to form a brand-new framework and to fasten the pace for society to enter the era of industrial 4.0. The Summit is an important communication platform for stakeholders in PV industry about Internet, finance and insurance.

Ø  Faced with severe environmental and energy problems, Chinese government has been vigorously promoting the growth of new energy in the past few years. And to better transmit, store and use energy, the research on energy storage materials of good quality and the development and utilization of energy storage technologies and equipments are undoubtedly the choice of the new energy era. Studies have shown that “graphene”, as a kind of new material, has extraordinary superiority and great potential for its applications in ultra-capacitor, lithium-ion battery, solar cell, etc. With regard to new energy cells, the graphene technology has also tackled the problems of inadequate capacity and long charging time on the batteries of new energy vehicles, thus greatly promoting the development of new energy cells. This Symposium on the Application of Graphene in PV Industry and Energy Storage Technologies, focused on practices from the application angle, covers the discussions on the progress of graphene technology and its process research as well as standardization, and also shares the energy storage systems that are applicable to different markets and their development trends.

Ø  As a traditional session of the SNEC PV Power Conference, the Industry Workshop on Advanced PV Technologies covers all the aspects of photovoltaic technology and manufacturing, including equipments/devices, materials, processes, manufacturing, integration, as well as emerging photovoltaic technologies and applications. Three globally renowned market research institutes: IHS, Bloomberg New Energy Finance, and EnergyTrend, which is the new energy branch of TrendForce, have been invited to co-organize the Forum on Global PV Market - Outlook and Development Strategies. Hot issues concerning the status and outlook for global solar PV industry will be interpreted from different perspectives, and related industry organizations and institutions from all over the world will get together at the forum to share the latest policies and development strategies in the emerging markets.

Ø  To promote the application of solar energy in the facilities and buildings in urban and rural areas, advance the cross-industry cooperation of urban and rural planning, architectural design, and solar energy engineering and achieve the perfect combination of buildings and PV power generation systems in form and their harmonious complementation in function, in 2016, SNEC will continue to establish a high-level platform for the communication and combination between solar energy industry and building industry: SNEC (2016) International Solar Energy and Green Building Conference and 2016 Challenge Cup of Solar Building Design and Engineering, with the supports of the European Commission, DG JRC, United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), International Union of Architects (UIA - ARES ), Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development (ENEA).

Ø  In April of 2015, Zhengjue Temple took part in SNEC9th (2015) International Photovoltaic Power Generation Conference & Exhibition and signed strategic cooperation agreement with Asian Photovoltaic Industry Association (APVIA) to together propel the dual environmental protection. To achieve this, in 2016, SNEC2016 and Zhengjue Temple will jointly launch the event - “PV Journey through Zen Tea Ceremony on One Belt and One Road” to further deepen the unique function of the dual concept - mind and ecology - environmental protection in the one belt and one road area and will hold the launch ceremony of “PV Journey through Zen Tea Ceremony on One Belt and One Road” during SNEC10th (2016) International Photovoltaic Power Generation Conference & Exhibition.


SNEC is going to celebrate her 10th anniversary this year, which is also the biggest highlight. In an instant, 10 years has passed. From the first year of 2007, SNEC has been sharing weal and woe with China’s photovoltaic industry, and has finally developed to one of the most influential and professional large-scale international PV tradeshows in the world. During these 10 years, SNEC witnesses the development and growth of China’s photovoltaic industry. It is a platform where many entrepreneurs uninvolved in the energy sector before enter into this new energy business. It is a bridge for many China photovoltaic entrepreneurs to expand international market. It is a recorder of the development fluctuation of China’s photovoltaic industry. Together with many industry players, SNEC experienced the great upheavals caused by the anti-dumping and anti-subsidy of Europe and the US. However, it stands in the same line with global photovoltaic industry and contributes to its unification.


On this occasion of the 10th anniversary, SNEC deeply appreciates the great supports of those solar players and experts. Thus, SNEC plans to launch an award ceremony, together with public and industry media, for the authoritative scientists, specialists and entrepreneurs who have made outstanding contributions to or great achievements in the solar industry. We are looking forward that the renowned PV enterprises, experts and elites will gather at SNEC2015 to look into the PV market of China, Asia as well as the world, and take the lead on industrial innovation from the industry perspective and through a problem solving approach.
