SUZHOU, November 20th, 2016
Zhu Gongshan, Chairman of Golden Concord Holdings Limited (GCL) (GCL System Integration Technology’s parent company), is recently elected as president of the second committee of the Global Solar Council (GSC), the world’s largest cooperation platform in photovoltaics (PV) industry. Zhu will lead the Council from December 2017 to December 2019.
In Zhu’s speech, he hoped the largest industry organization GSC to play a positive role in promoting PV’s development around the globe, by improving related policy, technology, and investment simultaneously.
Specifically, he suggested GSC to integrate resources among different countries and districts by sharing successful operating experiences and business model of developed markets to emerging markets.
Earlier this October, Zhu invited global industry leaders to join the International Forum on Energy Transition and took them to visit “Future Energy Forum” built by GCL. Zhu said: “In the near future, we seek to initiate more theme activities among Southeast Asia, Western Asia, Africa, and Latin America, to support and promote photovoltaics’ development in those emerging markets.”
Under Zhu’s leadership, GSC will also target to standardize market development, ease malignant competition, resolve trade dispute, and drive a healthy industry ecosystem.
Zhu meanwhile encouraged technology innovation in the PV industry, particularly among the intersection of multiple applied technologies, as well as new and traditional energy.
Moreover, Zhu suggested to make practical efforts, forming a solar power development fund for instance, to meet financial innovation for GSC.
“It’s my greatest honor to be the president of GSC’s second committee. I promise to leave no stone unturned to promote global development of PV industry,” Zhu said.
