The ” International Green Energy Expo and LED Industry Exhibition ” hosted by Daegu Metropolitan City and Gyeongsangbuk-do opened simultaneously on April 4(Wed) at Daegu EXCO.
After the government announced that it will increase the share of renewable energy sources such as solar power plants from 7 percent to 20 percent by 2030, and there is high expectation for expansion of domestic market, and related industry is revitalizing.
The International Green Energy Expo, which celebrates its 15th anniversary, is the representative renewable energy exhibition that has been held for the first time in Korea in 2004 with the longest history. This year, it was integrated with the LED industry exhibition, and the scale became bigger.
Thanks to the growth of the solar power and renewable energy industry, participating companies increased by 30%, attracting 280 companies (800 booths).
Overseas buyers have also expanded to more than double the previous year with 85 companies. The best events will be held concurrently and high-quality events are expected.
Recently, the interest of the general consumers in the solar power is so hot that the products of the solar power are sold on the Internet, so it is worth noting the communication with the related companies.
It is analyzed that the market reflected the consumer’s demand for not only small and medium sized power plants but also large power plants led to the participation of large companies related to the exhibition.
The reason why global solar Power companies have come to Daegu is also expected to grow in the domestic market, with the global TOP 10 inverters, energy storage, solar cell and solar panel makers, systems, construction, consulting and software companies are looking for Green Energy Expo.
Participation of many global solar power companies
