Talk Title: "Where is China going on Renewable Energy?" from Suntech Power perspective
Dr. Xiaoguang Ma, Suntech Power Chief Engineer
Suntech Power quickly became the global leading brand of solar PV module in only few years. China also established the #1 solar PV manufacturing industry as a result of the stimulation and motivation from Suntech's success story. Dr. Ma is going to reveal Suntech's status and strategy on how to keep its competitive advantage and sustain the future growth in the upcoming intensified global competition in PV technology and manufacturing.
Will Suntech's existing PV technology become obsolete? Will Suntech lead the industry to continue driving down PV module cost? What is its business strategy to penetrate global markets? In the mean time, how is Suntech boosting China's domestic renewable energy industry and market? Dr. Ma will touch upon various interesting topics from his personal experience and insight working out of China. Will China scale down nuclear power and accelerate renewable energy implementation thus increasing domestic demand in solar PV module? How is it going to affect the balance of PV supply and demand? Where is the "green" investment money flowing into renewable energy? How is China going to create hundreds of thousands of green jobs domestically? How can a foreigner benefit from the new wave of Chinese renewable energy boom?
Speaker Bio: Dr. Xiaoguang Ma received his BS from the Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, and his MS and Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley. He has worked in the Semiconductor, Hard Drive, and Photovoltaic for 10 years holding senior engineering management positions at Suntech Power Ltd, No. 1 PV firm globally. Currently Dr. Ma is the Chief Engineer at Suntech Power.
Dr. Ma was elected into "Thousand Talent Program" in 2009 and was titled "National Professor" in China. Dr. Ma holds more than 30 Semiconductor and PV patents and has authored many technical papers. He was an Adjunct Professor at Peking U niversity, Shanghai Jiaotong University and Shanghai Solar R&D Center where he co-advises Ph.D. students. Dr. Ma was the founding Chairman of MRS-China PV Association and founding Chairmen of Wuxi New District "530" Industry Association. Dr. Ma is a Committee Member, 11th National Youth Federation of China. He is also a councilor, Hongkong-Jiangsu Exchange Promotion Association and a government Advisor of City of Xinyu, Jiangxi China.
Talk Title: Store Electricity in Zinc
Dr. Gregory X. Zhang, Energy Storage Consultant
Talk Abstract: A key challenge faced by any technology for bulk electricity storage is cost, which arguably needs to be as low as $100/kWh for commercial applications. However, other than pumped hydro, which is limited by geological and environmental availability, there is no technology yet that has indicated the potential to meet such a low cost target. Using zinc as an energy carrier in conjunction with zinc-air and electro winning technologies has the potential of being a low cost solution for bulk storage, the rational of which will be discussed in this presentation.
Zinc has been a favorable anode material for electrochemical energy storage systems of all kinds since the invention of battery two hundred years ago due to its unique set of natural, economical and technical properties. There are many possibilities to store and release electricity in zinc materials. Using zinc materials for electricity storage physically decouples the charging and discharging operations of a storage system and allows flexible scaling of energy capacity independent of power and therefore storing bulk electricity economically. In addition to the excellent electrochemical properties, compatibility to environment and abundance of its resource are the most important attributes that are essential for any material based storage solution at the scale of an electrical grid.
Speaker Bio: Dr. Gregory X. Zhang is currently a consultant based in Toronto, Canada. For more than 20 years he has continuously been involved in the investigation of the electrochemical properties of zinc in a wide range of application contexts from corrosion to material processing and from batteries and to fuel cells. He has also extensively engaged in the development and commercialization of various types of zinc-air technologies for applications in alkaline batteries and as motive power sources and energy storage systems. Dr. Zhang is the author of the book: "Corrosion and Electrochemistry of Zinc". More recently, he published a comprehensive paper on "Zinc Electrode" and co-authored with Dr. S. Smedley another on "Zinc-Air: Hydraulic Recharge" in the Encyclopedia of Electrochemical Power Sources (publication in 2009).

Abstract: In light of the trend of consumerizing nearly everything, it should be prudent to re-evaluate US utility industry and the monolithic power grids in place.
Should the current business model of US utility industry be the golden template for the foreseeable future in US? Should the current power distribution system still be the way of the future in US in light of the campaign for deploying smart grids? This talk would attempt to propose some food for thoughts.
