Over 40 Chinese firms at energy summit
Abu Dhabi, January 4, 2010
More than 40 world leading renewable energy companies from China will take part in the World Future Energy Summit which will be held from January 18 to 21, in Abu Dhabi.
The event, which is now in its third year, will see a particularly strong level of Chinese participation from the solar energy sector. The Chinese pavilion has already grown to more than 1,000 sqm, said an organiser.
Leading companies and organisations from all across China, from Beijing, Shanghai, and Changzhou, to Wuxi, Ningbo, and Hangzhou will be participating in the World Future Energy Summit. Some of China’s leading companies are taking part in the Summit including Suntech Power, Yingli Green Energy Holding, and China Sunergy, among other international leaders.
There is a particularly strong presence of companies from Jiangsu Province, where solar power is a pillar of the economy. Suntech and China Sunergy are both located in Jiangsu. Approximately half of the Chinese companies participating are from Jiangsu province.
Dr Zhengrong Shi, Suntech’s chairman and CEO, will take part in a discussion on International Policy and Climate Change Action Plans during the summit in Abu Dhabi in January. Suntech, a NYSE listed company with a market capitalisation of close to $3 billion, is the world’s largest producer of crystalline silicon solar panels and has delivered solar energy products to more than 80 countries over the past eight years.
The China Greentech Report, recently issued by the China Greentech Initiative, a partnership of more than 80 of the world’s leading companies and organisations, projects that the investment by the Chinese government in its 'greentech' industry will drive private sector investment that could create a national market worth up to $1 trillion annually.
Such significant investment and government commitment has led to China playing a significant role in the exhibition at the World Future Energy Summit.-TradeArabia News Service
