Kim Dong-kwan, Chief Commercial Officer of Hanwha Q CELLS attended and represented that Hanwha is contributing to Asia’s energy industry as a global solar company. Especially Hanwha is responding to the global climate changes since solar is a low carbon emission energy source.
China has been hosting ‘Summer Davos Forum’ since 2007. This year’s Forum was held at the International Conference Center in Dalian from September 9th to 11th. It is usually held in Tianjin or Dalian, China in September. This forum is for the future leaders that will become the world’s best in next 10 years and the forum advocates technologies and innovation.

The opening ceremony was followed by a discussion session on ‘Asia’s Energy Option’ on 10th. Na Seung-yeon who is currently a host of Arirang TV and was the spokesperson for Pyeongchang Winter Olympics bid committee conducted the panel discussion. Asia’s major VIPs from Korea, China, India, and Mongolia participated as panels, and they discussed about what policies that Asia is concerning in terms of energy economy fluctuation while the concern for Chinese economy is real.

Kim Dong-kwan, Chief Commercial Officer of Hanwha Q CELLS who participated as a panel to represent Korea expressed that Korea has invested on energy related research and development and can contribute to Asian energy industry through the production innovation.

Moderator : Go to Mr. Kim. Because obviously, the Hanwha Group, a leading presence in solar energy. And also Korea, not a lot of natural resources, hardly any. But major importer of energy and yet also an exporter of energy related technologies. Of course your company is one of them. Could you talk about where Korea stands and where you see the potential maybe?

Kim Dong-kwan : I think as it was well proposed I think Korea has ambitious target of carbon reduction. And I think Korean government just released a very ambitious target of increasing the percentage of renewable to the double digits within a decade or so. I think, especially, Korea, as you mentioned, is very resources constrained. And we have been investing a lot into R&D.
And I think, especially, our strength in semi-conductors and display manufacturing has been transformed into manufacturing know-how for solar panels as well. Also, although Korean market itself is still relatively small compared to China or India. I think, throughout Asia, especially in China and India, we have a lot to contribute in terms of manufacturing innovation and also in bringing solutions. Maybe not only a conventional solutions but with micro grids and smart grids, I think there is a lot of opportunity to by-pass a lot of infrastructure requirements, power transmission requirements that are necessary to bring electricity to remote villages in India.

In addition, Mr. Kim emphasized that the economic feasibility of new and renewable energy has improved through the development of technology. He also said that if the government’s policies boost the innovation, the market will move dynamically and will lower the price.

Although the price is the most important element in solar and new and renewable energy, his belief that mass production is possible was revalidated through this forum. More demand can be expected if the way to lower the price is found. As a result, it can bring a dramatic change in power system.

Before the forum began, Mr. Kim was interviewed by a global economic channel CNBC. During the interview, he expressed that he was optimistic as clean and sustainable energy was being discussed a lot in China. He said, Chinese solar business is a big opportunity and will continue to grow.
