Clean Energy Expo China
The Clean Energy Expo China is one of the largest green tech trade shows in China, attracting 600 exhibitors and more than 18,000 visitors from 59 countries last year. The involvement of the China Electricity Council (CEC) makes this show the definitive trade event for the clean energy industry in Asia.

The green tech sector in China
Driven by growing urgencies in energy security, food and water supply, and pollution on an immense scale, the green tech industry has become the top priority among China‘s strategic industries.
To sustain economic growth while reversing its negative impact on the environment, China is pushing ahead with its green tech policies and spending. Within just a few years, China has emerged as a green tech leader at the centre of almost every green tech market.
In 2012, China became global leader in green energy investment, attracting close to EUR 50 billion, 20% more than in 2011 and almost twice as much as the United States. China added 23 GW of clean energy capacity last year, boosting the total to 152 GW. The government plans to add another 49 GW of renewable energy capacity in 2013 alone: 21 GW in hydropower, 18 GW in wind and 10 GW in solar.
Opportunities in the sector abound for innovative European companies as their advanced technology is urgently needed if China is to keep its climate protection promises.
