The First West China Photovoltaic Forum was held in Shuangliu, Chengdu this past week.
Seventeen programs totaling CNY14.5 billion were signed that concentrated on Chengdu, which is also the biggest group of deals signed since the Sichuan Earthquake.
Of all the signed contracts, three were about logistics, nine programs including ultra clear glass, and leadless glass power of Yibin Global Group Company was the largest concentrated industrial program with a total investment of CNY10.9 billion.
Shuangliu has planned to construct a photovoltaic industrial park since 2004. It has already introduced many photovoltaic companies such as Apollo and Taney and aims to be the most influential photovoltaic industry zone in West China.
Sichuan has great advantages to develop photovoltaic industry. First, the rich hydro electricity and polysilicon production guarantee the energy and material supply. Second, 80% of silicon talents are from institutes and colleges in Sichuan. Third, cost on land and communication is 25% lower than that of coastal areas.
