The inaugural Solar Power Mexico (SPM), organised by SNEC International Photovoltaic Power Generation and Smart Energy Exhibition & Conference (hereinafter referred to as SNEC PV Power Expo & Conference), Solar Power International and Hannover Messe, was successfully held on March 19-21, 2019 in Mexico City. Hundreds of leading solar companies from China, Europe, America, and Mexico such as GCL, Trina Solar, Canadian Solar, Suntech, Sungrow, Jinko, JA Solar, Astronergy, Jinlong Solis, ABB, Siemens, BayWa, SunPower, Exel Solar, Solar Edge, Ingeteam, Hanwha Q-cells, SDE Mexico, etc., exhibiting at the event along with thousands of distributors and buyers from Mexico and over the world.
SNEC 13th (2019) PV Power Expo & Conference announced at the Solar Power Mexico, will take place on June 3-6, 2019 in Shanghai, China as scheduled. 2019 International Energy Storage and Hydrogen & Fuel Cell Exhibition and Conference (hereinafter referred to as Energy Storage and Hydrogen Expo and Conference) will be held concurrently.
SNEC2019 PV Power Expo has attracted exhibitors and visitors from over 90 countries and regions. SNEC2019 will reach a scale of 200,000 square meters’ exhibition space and over 1800 exhibitors, coming from the entire value chain of solar, energy storage, hydrogen and fuel cells industries. About 4000 professionals and 5000 enterprises, including buyers, suppliers, integrators, are expected to gather at Shanghai, with the visits to reach over 220,000. There will also be delegations from emerging markets such as Mexico and Brazil to join SNEC2019 program.
The Conference will invite the National Energy Administration, Ministry of Science and Technology, and other relevant governmental departments to talk about the latest incentives for solar/PV industry. Leading scientists and experts like Prof. Martin Green from University of New South Wales, Australia, Prof. David Renne, President of International Solar Energy Society (ISES), Dr. Dirk-Holger Neuhaus from Fraunhofer ISE in Germany, Dr. Michael Woodhouse from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), USA, Prof. Armin Aberle, CEO of Solar Energy Research Institute of Singapore (SERIS), Prof. Ayodhya N. Tiwari from Empa-Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology in Switzerland, etc. are to share their great insights on the solar/PV industry .
The conference will cover government incentives, development trends, technical upgrading, conversion efficiency, PV systems, smart grid connection, financing and risk, etc. among others, via various programs. Apart from the Solar Leaders Dialogue, Global Green Energy & PV Financial Summit, and Scientific Conference, it will launch the International Energy Storage and Hydrogen & Fuel Cell Conference. This conference will bring in policy makers, industry experts and scholars, leading enterprises, financial institutions, consultancies and media, to discuss the policies, cutting-edge technologies, market trends, business model, and financing tools, etc. in the field of energy storage, hydrogen and fuel cells.
There will also be industry workshops conducted on balance of system and O&M of PV plants, high efficiency solar cells, auxiliary materials, technologies related, PV intelligent manufacturing technology. The Graphene Photoelectric Application Summit, Seminar on PV poverty alleviation, distributed & residential PV and off grid energy technologies as well as energy internet technologies and application summit will be talked about. In addition, SNEC2019 will also introduce training courses and seminars for developers from different regions, including China, Southeast Asia, America, Mexico, and Europe in order to promote the global project development collaboration.
From the industry’s viewpoint, let us take pulse of the PV power market of China, Asia, and the world, so as to guide the innovative development of the industries of PV, energy storage and hydrogen, and achieve “Energy Internet”.
