Shanghai new energy conference and exhibition (SNEC) report

Shanghai new energy conference and exhibition (SNEC) report

At the conclusion of SNEC in 2018 the Chinese government slashed the domestic feed in tariff rate for solar PV projects. One year on and the Chinese industry has worked through the downturn caused by the policy change.

Indeed, the SNEC 2019 event from June 3-5 in Shanghai was bigger and better attended than ever.

THE WRAP:

Solar PV module manufacturers are increasingly innovating to create new products.

Half modules, double sided glass modules, and 'shingle' modules are coming to the fore.

In inverters to innovation and industry consolidation are improving product quality and range.

Unsurprisingly, energy storage remains a major focus for many industry players.

But it was hydrogen technology that provided the most compelling glimpse of the future, with hydrogen powered trucks on display.

And with 220,000 delegates in attendance, it is not possible to understate the impact renewable energy is having on the Chinese and global market.
