30.-31. March 2015: CSP Focus China, Beijing

There seems to be a downturn in the global CSP market due to the high cost of CSP key components and the withdrawal of policy incentives in major CSP markets, such as Spain and USA. Besides, the high financing costis also a key obstacle for the development of CSP in some emerging markets like India and South Africa. So it is really a cirtical time for international CSP community to find proposals to cut down the cost of the total CSP projects.

With decade of development, Chinese CSP key component (receiver tube, mirror etc.) manufacturers are achieving great progress on technology innovation and cost economy, as well as the production capacity. Hopefully they can play even greater role in the future development of CSP market worldwide with the help of the low cost financing from China.

China Export & Credit Insurance Corporation (SINOSURE) is a state-funded policy-oriented insurance company, established to promote Chinese exports of goods, technologies and service by means of export credit insurance against non-payment risks. With the involvement of SINOSURE, overseas CSP projects are able to get funded from Chinese banks through either buyer’s credit or supplier’s credit.

In the upcoming CSP Focus China 2015 March 30-30 Beijing, SINOSURE will join the financing session discussion. It’s the first time for SINOSURE to present on CSP events, and they are aiming to offer more supports for local EPC and component suppliers in CSP sector.

Besides, Mr. Ashok Bhargava, Director of Energy Division, East Asia Dept., from Asian Development Bank, and Mr. Dana Younger, Chief Renewable Energy Specialist from International Finance Corporation (IFC) will also share about financing topics during CSP Focus China 2015.
