San Jose, California – Freiburg, Pforzheim, Germany, 18 December 2009 – Intersolar is joining the SEMI PV Group and its partners to co-organize a first-class PV conference and presenting an Intersolar Pavilion at SOLARCON China in Shanghai, March 16-18, 2010.
The high-level PV conference takes place during SOLARCON China with more than 1,000 participants expected to attend. This continuing collaboration is a furthering of the successful partnership between the SEMI PV Group and the organizers of Intersolar’s global events, Solar Promotion International GmbH and Freiburg Management and Marketing International GmbH. Together they have created the successful and rapidly growing Intersolar North America exhibition in San Francisco, California and have expanded the scope of the already highly acclaimed Intersolar Europe event in Munich, Germany. The Intersolar shows bring together all solar energy technologies and the entire solar energy supply chain, including: equipment and materials suppliers, cell and module manufacturers, balance of systems (BOS) suppliers (including inverters, tracking systems, integrators), distributors and project developers.
“SEMI is extremely pleased to expand the excellent relationship we have with Solar Promotion International GmbH, and Freiburg Management and Marketing International GmbH as we co-organize these Intersolar shows,” said Dan Martin, Executive Vice President of SEMI. “SEMI has had a long-term presence in the China market, and we have recently collaborated with the major solar energy companies in the region to release a Policy Roadmap White Paper. This White Paper recommends significant increases to the long-term targets for domestic solar installation to encourage a rapid acceleration of the solar energy market in China. This show is an opportunity for both domestic and international companies to be there as the China markets achieve rapid growth and profitability.”
“Together, we are committed to producing the right number and size of high-quality solar shows around the world that will enable global, regional, and local manufacturers and suppliers to access these growing markets,” said Markus Elsaesser, CEO, Solar Promotion International. “The Chinese government, on both a national and provincial level, has begun an aggressive program of incentives to engage the industry in rapid growth. We are pleased to co-organize the PV conference and Intersolar Pavilion at SOLARCON China 2010 to help support the rapid growth and adoption expected in this region.”
"The Intersolar Pavilion and PV conference at SOLARCON China 2010 represents a beginning of our fruitful cooperation with SEMI in China,” said Mr. Klaus W Seilnacht and Mr. Dr. Bernd Dallmann, the CEO’s from Freiburg Management and Marketing International GmbH.
