Keynote Presentation

Dr. Liyou YANG, General Manager, Jinneng Clean Energy Technology Limited

14:00-15:00

  1. How does the PV industry plan the path to achieve Carbon Peak and Carbon Neutral goals? What kinds of policy support needed? What are the challenges?
  2. What is the market status and development trends of the current global PV market? Is the impact of trade barriers further strengthened with the change of political powers in Europe and the United States? How does the trends of global carbon neutralization affect the overseas development of enterprises?
  3. What risks may exist in the PV industry value chain and in the supply and demand of various auxiliary materials? How should the enterprises avoid these risks?
  4. Till when could new business models, such as photovoltaic plus energy storage, hydrogen production by photovoltaic, bring new breakthroughs to the industry in the future? How will these contribute to achieving the Carbon Peak and Carbon Neutral goals? How large will the market be in the future?
  5. Domestic carbon market will launch online trading by the end of June. What opportunities will be brought to photovoltaic enterprises? What additional benefits will CCER bring to enterprises? How do we look upon the future trends of carbon prices?
