JinkoSolar invited to attend Summer Davos 2017
Dalian – June 27th, 2017 - JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. (“JinkoSolar”), a global leader in the photovoltaic (PV) industry, today announced that it was invited to attend the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting in Dalian from June 27-29, and hold talks with political/business leaders and experts on renewable energy and further exchange views on climate change, energy transition, carbon market, green financing, green development along belt road countries.
The meeting is a leading global gathering on innovation, entrepreneurship, science and technology. It is held in close collaboration with the People’s Republic of China, with the support of the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), and will welcome about 2,000 participants from 80 countries.
When commenting on the role of renewable energy in today’s energy-transition world, Ms. Dany Qian, Vice President of JinkoSolar at the World Economic Forum said: “We’re seeing continued, stunning declines in the cost of renewable energy, especially solar energy, energy efficiency, and energy storage — giving nations and communities around the world dramatic new opportunities to embrace a sustainable future based on a low carbon economy. In many parts of the world, solar energy is already much cheaper than fossil fuels, for example JinkoSolar quoted 2.42 cents a kilowatt-hour for solar power in Abu Dhabi, and some developing countries are leapfrogging carbon-based energy altogether.”
During the panel discussion, Ms. Dany Qian shared her vision of solar energy, “Decentralized solar energy will revolutionarily change our way to generate, distribute, consume, and trade electricity. It is not only a source of energy, but a free selected and free flowed commodity, even a platform or hub to integrate with electric vehicles, smart home appliances, smart grids, mobilized charging stations, artificial intelligence and other advanced manufacturing. Similar developments are occurring or are likely to occur elsewhere throughout the world. Solar energy is definitely ramping up our transition to a clean energy economy at a pace previously unimaginable.”
As the world largest solar panel manufacturer, JinkoSolar has been gaining increasing international recognition and is on fast track to become the industry leader. “We will continue to deepen collaboration with all climate responsible enterprises, governments across the world to make more efforts and contributions to fight climate crisis,” said Ms. Dany Qian.
