The recent SNEC International Photovoltaic Power Generation Conference & Exhibition in Shanghai, which was attended by more than 100,000 participants, has revealed that China's photovoltaic industry can offer critical lessons for the North American and European photovoltaic industries, according to Matthew Holzman, president of the Solar Engineering & Manufacturing Association (SEMA).
Therefore, SEMA plans to address the rapidly evolving China model and its ramifications at the association's next meeting. Scheduled topics of discussion include the impact of China's manufacturing model on the global solar manufacturing industry, as well as a technical assessment of the Chinese photovoltaic industry.
The discussion and information is designed to offer comparative data in order to help attendees understand the key differentiators in capital cost models, technology, manufacturing efficiency and quality practices, SEMA says.
SEMA's meeting is scheduled to take place Thurs., March 3 at Flextronics International's campus in Milpitas, Calif., located at 637 Gibraltar Court, Building 1, from 5-7 p.m. Attendees are instructed to RSVP to Jasbir Bath as soon as possible at firstname.lastname@example.org.
