On August 7, 2020, the 14th International Solar PV and Smart Energy (Shanghai) Forum was held in Shanghai. Mr. Tang Jun, president of Suntech was invited to attend the “Global Solar Leaders Dialogue” session and shared insights with the PV industry leaders from around the world.
As an important part of SNEC 2020, the dialogue served as a wide communicative platform for the industry well-known experts and relevant leaders from government departments to discuss about policy guidance and market trends, focusing on global market forecast during the 14th five year plan period, impact of COVID-19 and counter-measures to take and the development potentials of PV generation technology etc.
Mr. Tang pointed out that the crystalline silicon technology has fully developed, “For example, in 2014, we considered mono PERC technology as an alternative, but not an ultimate. However, it is this alternative technology has served as an alternative way for six years, still played a key role for the promotion of conversion efficiency. In the years ahead, the PV module conversion efficiency is expected to 25%. Meanwhile, Suntech has got involved in key technologies, such as HJT, which will set the trend in the future in R&D.”
Mr. Tang emphasized that the high quality products should be put at the most important place when seeking the application of high power, high efficiency and large scale. “We’re taking over the renewable energy industry, and we must take recycling economy into consideration. To develop high-quality products, it is to embrace circular economy concept and avoid subsequent waste to the maximum extent possible.”
As a global leading PV brand, Suntech has enjoyed stable growth in recent years based on pragmatic business operation and management. By the first quarter of 2020, Suntech had broken the cumulative shipment of 22GW to over 100 countries and regions. In the future, Suntech is striving to provide high-quality and reliable solar products based on excellent technology. We are working together with the peers to make contribution to the entire PV industry.
