Clean Energy Expo China 2011 Draws 17,000 Attendees: Announces Two Collocations for 2012
Clean Energy Expo China 2011 recently wrapped up in Beijing and attracted nearly 17,000 attendees to the China National Convention Center.
CEEC 2011 featured 320 exhibitors from 19 countries and regions, including national representations from Germany (led by the German Industry & Commerce), Canada (led by the Ontario Investment and Trade Services, Ministry of Economic Development and Trade) and the Netherlands.
There also were several big-name industry sponsors and exhibitors on hand, such as SSB/Emerson, BASF, Siemens, Bachmann electronic, CSR Zhuzhou, LDK, State Grid, Longyuan Group and Guodian United Power, DHI·DCW, PPG, Delta Group, CEEG, GS-Solar, Trina Solar, Rayspower, Linuo, Sunrain, KGE and many more.
“Through this exhibition we’ve gotten many new contacts, and at the same time, showcased SSB’s capabilities,” said Gao Yupei, sales and marketing director of SSB Wind Energy.
He added, “SSB is committed to remain a leader in the industry, and so we will not miss this opportunity to be at Clean Energy Expo China.”
CEEC is organized by the China Electricity Council, Germany-based Koelnmesse and the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade Beijing Sub-council.
According to Koelnmesse officials, CEEC reportedly is the only cross sector renewable energy event in China and has been receiving strong political backing since its inception.
Lu Weijiang, marketing vice-director of the State Grid Electric Power Research Insititute, said of the show, “We will definitely participate at Clean Energy Expo China again and bring our latest renewable energy generation as well as grid connection technology and equipment. There is interaction and exchange between industry peers. We feel very good here and hope to network with more people.”
There were several sponsors as well - the China Electricity Council, the National Energy Administration, the State Electricity Regulatory Commission, the State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission, Asian Development Bank (ADB), the World Wind Energy Association (WWEA) the Independent Power Producers Forum (IPPF), the China Automotive Technology and Research Center (CATARC) and the National Solar Thermal Industry Alliance.
This year also was the first one that CEEC partnered with industry forum – China Power – at which issues surrounding wind power, solar energy, solar heating, smart grid and electric vehicle infrastructure were dealt with in various sub-forums.
“Clean Energy Expo China is a very good platform as it combines a high-quality conference with an exhibition, which is great for professional visitors to meet us”, said Su Yong, director of conference sponsor CEEG Solar.
Next year’s CEEC show will be even bigger, with the collocation of two market-leading events - International Photovoltaic Exhibition (CIPV) and China International Bioenergy Exhibition & Technical Conference (CIBE).
As a result of the collocation and the need for more showfloor space, the three events will be held next year at the China International Exhibition Center.
