GCL Chairman Zhu Gongshan Named President of Global Solar Council’s New Committee English
Zhu Gongshan, Chairman of Golden Concord Holdings Limited, was recently elected President of the second committee of the Global Solar Council (GSC), the world’s largest cooperation platform in the photovoltaics (PV) industry. Zhu will lead the Council from December 2017 to December 2019. In Zhu’s acceptance speech, he expressed his hope that GSC will play a positive role in promoting the PV industry’s development around the globe, by improving policy, technology, and investment simultaneously. Specifically, he suggested that GSC could integrate resources among different countries and districts by sharing successful operating experiences and business models between developed markets and emerging markets.
Earlier this October, Zhu invited global industry leaders to join the International Forum on Energy Transition and took them to visit the “Future Energy Forum” built by GCL. Zhu said: “In the near future, we will seek to initiate more theme activities in Southeast Asia, Western Asia, Africa, and Latin America, to support and promote photovoltaics’ development in those emerging markets.”
Under Zhu’s leadership, GSC will also target standardized market development, easing malignant competition, resolving trade disputes, and driving a healthy industry ecosystem. Zhu will encourage technology innovation in the PV industry, particularly among the intersection of multiple applied technologies, as well as new and traditional energy. Moreover, Zhu suggested that GSC make practical efforts, such as forming a solar power development fund, to drive financial innovation. “It’s my greatest honor to be the President of GSC’s second committee. I promise to leave no stone unturned to promote the global development of the PV industry,” Zhu said.
