An expert dialogue forum was held after the release of the report and outstanding enterprise leaders, experts and scholars from various fields of the clean energy industry exchanged opinions on industrial development, product innovation, technology research and development, and other issues. Mr. Li Zhenguo, President of LONGi Green Energy Technology Co., Ltd., participated in the forum as a representative of the photovoltaic industry. President Li said that in the past decade, the competitiveness of photovoltaic over traditional energy sources has been greatly improved with the continuous breakthrough in photovoltaic power generation technology and photovoltaic power generation costs have fallen significantly.
At present, in many areas of the Middle East and South America, photovoltaic feed-in tariffs are already less than 2 cents. It is believed that in the near future, photovoltaic will become the most economical type of clean energy in most areas of the world. Coupled with the infinity of photovoltaic resources, as well as the continuous progress of energy storage technology, photovoltaic power generation will certainly occupy a dominant position in the future energy structure.

On the issue of the global development of the photovoltaic industry, President Li said that since the birth of photovoltaic industry, it has a high level of globalization, internationalization and marketization. Overseas growth of photovoltaic industry has been rapid in recent years. Taking LONGi as an example, the proportion of overseas shipments increased rapidly from about 10% in 2017 to more than 30% in 2018. At the same time, photovoltaic is also widely recognized by countries around the world as a type of clean energy, many countries have imported demand for manufacturing industry. LONGi also completed the production distribution of the whole industry chain in Kuching, Malaysia in 2018. At present, LONGi is still looking for coastal countries and regions with terrain altitude difference, hoping to combine pumped storage with photovoltaic power generation to achieve clean energy power supply for the whole industrial chain, and truly realize the development philosophy of “Solar for Solar”. 

 

Looking forward to the future development trend of the photovoltaic industry, President Li said that the development of the photovoltaic industry is still at the starting point today, and only when the photovoltaic industry really achieves grid parity can it be regarded as a “formal debut” in the energy structure of mankind. In the future energy change trend towards “electrification of energy consumption, cleanliness of power generation”, photovoltaic will eventually account for nearly 70% of the future energy structure. Therefore, we believe that photovoltaic power has a huge market prospect.
