The expo provides an opportunity for foreign and domestic experts and entrepreneurs to feel the pulse of the world solar power industry and observe changes in the international market firsthand.
The concurrent three-day conference is known as the "Photovoltaic Davos of the East" by industry insiders.
One of the keynote speakers at the event will be Martin Green, the executive research director of the ARC Photovoltaics Center of Excellence at the University of New South Wales, Australia. Green has been called "the father of modern photovoltaics".

Resch, chairman and CEO of the Solar Industry Association (SEIA); Charles Gay, president of Applied Solar at Applied Materials Inc, chairman of the Applied Solar Council and co-founder of the Foundation of Green Star; and Konaga Yinari, chairman of the Japan Solar Energy Society and professor of the Tokyo Institute of Technology.
Up to now, the organizers have received a total of 100 papers and invited 150 experts to deliver speeches at eight sessions. Other interesting discussions include "Solar Leaders Summit" and "Million Solar Roofs Initiative".
The three main topics of this PV forum are Science and Technology Advancement of Photovoltaic Power Generation, Integration and Application of Photovoltaic Power Generation, and Government Policy Guidance of the PV Industry. These are also the topics mostly discussed by the people outside the industry. Topics of how to get sustainable development, regulate the market, and protect both sides' interests for PV industry will be explored at this conference. At that time, representatives from Asia, European Union, and North America will have an intensive and thorough discussion, and finally agree on one declaration, which may be called "Shanghai Declaration" of Global PV Industry.
It is estimated that there will be about 200,000 visitor attendances to the event, among which there are a great number of officials from government departments of various regions, and related professionals from different fields such as electronic machinery, real estate development, architecture design, and contracting projects.
