Cooperation between China Electricity Council and German trade fair organizer brings new opportunities for development of China’s clean energy industry
The China Electricity Council (CEC) and Koelnmesse have inked a cooperation agreement in December 2009 to jointly manage Clean Energy Expo China (CEEC) and Wind Power Asia (WPA).
CEC is owned by the State Council and led by the State Electricity Regulatory Commission. Being the governing body of all power enterprises and institutions in China, the cooperation synergizes CEC’s local influence and government support with Koelnmesse’s management expertise and international network.
“We are honored to cooperate with the China Electricity Council, the leading association of the Chinese electricity industry, to hold Clean Energy Expo China/Wind Power Asia in 2010. With the current global concern on climate change, we believe that clean energy and environment protection will be one of the most important issues for the world’s development in the next ten years.
As China is the fastest developing market for clean energy it sets the ideal background for this strategic cooperation. Working closely with the industry, we will endeavor to provide a robust trade platform for the exploration of more effective clean energy solutions,” says Mr David Feng, Managing Director, Koelnmesse Co., Ltd. in China.
CEC will boost new opportunities for CEEC and WPA with the guaranteed attendance of key local buyer groups. Currently, 13 top power producers in China as members of CEC including the State Grid, China Southern Power Grid, China Huaneng, Datang, China Huadian Cooperation and China Guodian
Cooperation have confirmed their support for the events with strong procurement delegations. This marks the first time for CEEC and WPA to feature both the upstream power grid corporations and downstream equipment manufacturers and parts suppliers.
Trade visitors will also be benefitting from the alliance as a greater variety of equipment suppliers from the entire field of clean energy are expected to exhibit in 2010.
The next CEEC and WPA will be held from 23 to 25 June 2010 at the China National Convention Center in Beijing.
