PVAP Expo 2013

Introduction

The global photovoltaic industry faces a cold winter, as product prices fall and profits decrease with companies announcing bankruptcy featured in the media.

 

The good news is that the world’s total installed PV capacity in 2012 exceeds that of 2011.New favorable solar power policies have been announced in countries such as China, India, Japan, Malaysia and Thailand. The Asian markets have gained momentum in 2012 and more emerging markets from the region can be expected in 2013.

 

Grid parity has been achieved in Singapore and will be the case in more countries as solar technologies are optimised, leading to cost reductions as the commercial PV industry comes of age. Balance can be attained in the supply and demand chain for the PV industry with the comprehensive utilization of solar photovoltaics in more Asian markets. A warm spring is possible in Asia for solar PV Companies.

 

To help solar PV companies gain Asia market share and opportunities, and keep track of innovative achievements, we are devoted to building the PV Asia Pacific Expo into a professional trade platform covering the entire PV chain. We aim to demonstrate professionalism, accuracy and efficiency.  

 

PV Asia Pacific Expo 2013 is hosted by the Asian Photovoltaic Industry Association (APVIA). The event is fully supported by the Singapore Energy Market Authority (EMA), Economic Development Board (EDB), Singapore Tourism Board (STB), Singapore Exhibition and Convention Bureau (SECB) and major PV associations in Asia.
