In the 11th Chinese photovoltaic forum, Shi Dinghuan, the president of China Renewable Energy Society, says that Jiangsu province will determine the Chinese photovoltaic industry, which plays an important role in the International photovoltaic industry. Jiangsu province has occupied more than half of the production capacity in the Chinese photovoltaic industry.
Jiangsuis the fast-growing region in new energy, which has always focused on the industry in the wind and photovoltaic power generations. After the Copenhagen climate conference, the photovoltaic industry has taken the lead in the recovery of finance crisis. Jiangsu province has obtained the development opportunity, and more than 95% products are export to Europe and America market, with the annual increase rate of 150%.
The solar battery is the signal for photovoltaic industry. Pro. Wei Qidong, the secretary general of Jiangsu photovoltaic industry association, believes that China has become the biggest solar battery manufacturing country in the world, with the solar battery production capacity of 4.1GWp in 2009, accounting for 37.6% of the world production, among of which the Jiangsu province has produced around 2.3 GWp crystal silicon cell. Besides, Suntech and GCL-Poly in Jiangsu province are among the largest crystal silicon producers in the world.
The photovoltaic industry in Jiangsu province has formed the completed industry chain, where more than 300 enterprises and companies are involved in the solar application products. 8 cooperations are successfully listed abroad, and around 20 companies have the production value of more than RMB 1 billion Yuan.
