The 10th SNEC PV POWER EXPO Successfully Held

The largest PV tradeshow in the world -- SNEC 10th (2016) International Photovoltaic Power Generation Conference & Exhibition was successfully rounded off on May 26th, 2016.


SNEC2016, with the exhibiting space reaching 150,000 square meters, attracted 1618 exhibitors and over 200,000 visits from 95 countries and regions.

SNEC2016 has also become the most popular grand gathering with the largest spot trading amount and the most releases of new products and new technology among the past ten editions.

Meanwhile, SNEC PV Power Expo also becomes an important “positive energy” for a prompt development of PV industry in China and even in the world. SNEC sets up a platform for those entrepreneurs who have never been involved in energy field before to fully show their PV talents and to become new energy bigwigs enjoying their fames throughout the world. SNEC connects a bridge to make many Chinese PV entrepreneurs compete with overseas peers, and let PV or new energy made in China lightening everywhere in the world. SNEC faithfully records the puberty of Chinese PV industry when many PV entrepreneurs successfully overcome the market turbulence and difficult dilemma caused by the global financial crisis and the anti-dumping and anti-subsidy in Europe and USA. SNEC stands together with world’s PV dealers through thick and thin as well as advocating peace and opposing rat race. It also advocates, supports and renders the global PV industry into a magnificent united PV power and new energy battlefront!


On this occasion of the 10th Anniversary of SNEC, and to sincerely and deeply express gratitude to these international organizations, scientists, PV experts and PV enterprises who always support solar energy and PV industry development and always take part in and support SNEC, the Organizing Committee presented ten “Apollo” Awards via a series of celebrations: Outstanding Contributions to PV industry, Pioneer and Leader of PV Industry, Leader of PV Industrial Organization, Distinguished PV Scientist, Industrial Leader of PV Industry, Technological Leader of PV Industry, Technological Leading Company of PV Industry, SNEC 10 Years Sustainability Company, Terawatt Level PV Industry Media, Best Booth Design & Building, as well as Full Support Figures. Apollo is known as the god of the Sun. Every Apollo trophy is handmade by the colored glaze called “Sun Stone”. The fireball symbolizes the up power. The little golden man holding the fireball high indicates that our solar energy business is flourishing and prosperous. The earth trophy tells the development of green energy to protect our home, the Earth.


SNEC2016 Conference is an opportunity that you cannot miss to stay up to date on the technology and market, present your results to the community, and network with industrial experts, scholars and entrepreneurs and colleagues. Different sessions such as Keynote Speeches, Solar Leaders Dialogue, Scientific Conference, Global PV Financial Summit, Industry Workshops on Advanced PV Technologies and Global PV Market, Symposium on the Application of Graphene in PV Industry and Energy Storage Technologies, SNEC (2016) International Solar Energy and Green Building Conference and 2016 Challenge Cup of Solar Building Design and Engineering, also attract almost 1800 industrial top managers, PV scientists and industrial experts from the whole world. In every event, experts and entrepreneurs express their brilliant points of view when audience raise questions and generates a lot of wisdom sparks about new energy.
