Beneq hosts photovoltaic specialist seminar in Shanghai

Shanghai, China | Posted on November 3rd, 2011

In October, an exclusive two-day solar energy seminar was held in Shanghai. The intention of the seminar was primarily to bring together executive-level cell manufacturing representatives with academic and industrial experts on emerging cell-enhancing coating technologies, e.g., atomic layer deposition (ALD) and aerosol coating, both of which are provided by Beneq.

The participants, more than 100 top-level business delegates and research experts met for two intense days to learn about the current status of PV both globally and in China, and Beneq coating equipment for silicon-based and thin film solar cells. Speakers at the seminar included Prof. Junhao Chu, Academician of the Chinese Academy of Science and Director of SCPV, Qiang Huang, Vice President of Trina Solar, Dr Xiaoguang Ma, CTO of Suntech and Dr Winfried Hoffmann, Vice President of EPIA.

Prof. Junhao Chu, Director of SCPV and who opened the seminar, summarizes: "We are very pleased with the success of this seminar. In order to ensure consistent development of research and development of photovoltaics in China, we need these kinds of events. Personally, I was pleased with the high standard of speakers, and the level of interest of the participants. We have found that closed invitation-only seminars lead to a more open atmosphere among the participants, thus enabling tangible decisions and concrete outcomes."

Beneq CEO, Sampo Ahonen, who addressed the seminar, comments: "This concept is clearly a win-win occasion for all involved. It is seldom a company gets the opportunity like this to meet face-to-face with top level management of the biggest cell manufacturing companies in China. It is likewise rare to meet such a number of distinguished speakers, all of which are recognized authorities in their respective field of expertise."

The aforementioned seminar was arranged by the Chinese Academy of Sciences Shanghai Branch, the Shanghai Solar Energy Society, the Shanghai Vacuum Society and Shanghai Physical Society, hosted by the Shanghai Center for Photovoltaics and Beneq and supported by the Shanghai Institute of Technical Physics of CAS, the East China Normal University-Colorado State University Joint Research Institute for New Energy and the Environment, the Key Laboratory of Advanced Technique & Preparation for Renewable Energy Materials, Ministry of Education, Yunnan Normal University and the Institute of Solar Energy, Shanghai Jiaotong University.
