Driving China’s Green GDP

太阳能 – 新能源的王道随着中国12-5计划的深入实施, 新能源的发展已经在整个能源产业的比重中占了不可忽视的地位。太阳能, 作为一个非常重要的组成部分正在以一个非比寻常的速度在发展。随着产业链的不断完善, 国际市场的需求加上国内新兴市场的刺激, 中国作为太阳能光伏产业的老大的地位正在发挥着举足轻重的作用。China has overtaken Japan as the world’s second largest economy, however this is not necessarily a triumphant moment. Not only because China’s per capita gross domestic product (GDP) still seriously lags behind the developed world, it is also trying to accelerate economic restructuring and reduce its heavy reliance on high energy consumption to fuel its economy.Having maintained a strong presence in China for 26 years, we are confident that as the current energy intensive “GDP Cult” fades, China will accelerate development in solar and renewable energy for a more sustainable development— and Applied Materials will play a key role in helping drive that green GDP.

China’s Role in the Global PV Industry

Last week, I participated in the North American PV Fab Managers Forum, part of the Intersolar North America conference in San Francisco. One of the hot topics was the role of China in the photovoltaic (PV) industry. Asia in general and China in particular have come to be a major presence on the PV manufacturing scene.
