The recent SNEC International Photovoltaic Power Generation Conference & Exhibition in Shanghai, which was attended by more than 100,000 participants, revealed that China’s photovoltaic industry can offer critical lessons for the North American and European photovoltaic industries. Matthew Holzman, President of the Solar Engineering & Manufacturing Association (SEMA), will address the rapidly evolving China model and its ramifications at this week’s SEMA meeting.

The upcoming SEMA meeting will address the impact of China’s manufacturing model on the global solar manufacturing industry, and is scheduled to take place Thursday, March 3, 2011 at Flextronics International’s campus in Milpitas, Calif., located at 637 Gibraltar Court, Building 1, from 5-7 p.m.

Holzmann will present a technical assessment of the Chinese photovoltaic industry. The discussion and information presented will offer comparative data in order to help attendees to understand the key differentiators in capital cost models, technology, manufacturing efficiency and quality practices.

Space is limited, so please RSVP to Jasbir Bath as soon as possible (
