HighlightS in Abu Dhabi 2013

On 16th of January 2013, the World Future Energy Summit (WFES) 2013 took place in Abu Dhabi, starting a new round of industry fairs in the renewables sector across the globe in 2013. Schmid Silicon Technology (SST) again presented its technology at what is probably the most important fair for the solar industry inside the MENA region. Burkhard Wehefritz, Director Sales Development Department, SST, joined his colleagues from SCHMID Group at the perfectly organized "German Pavilion" at WFES. SST, SCHMID Group and partners together offer turnkey solutions for the entire PV solar value chain, from Polysilicon production technology down to the PV module. Due to the more general thematic approach in this year, exhibitors and participants came from a wide range across the field of energy, like water purification, oil- and gas companies, even including nuclear power plants.

Despite the focus not lying exclusively on solar power, our colleagues made interesting enough contacts with customers and business partners. One of the highlights in Abu Dhabi was the visit of German Federal Environment Minister Peter Altmaier to the SCHMID booth. Despite the limited time available Dr. Wehefritz had a chance to explain who we are and what we do. Mr. Altmaier expressed an immediate interest in the full turnkey approach of SST and SCHMID covering the monocrystalline PV solar value chain from Polysilicon to the Grid based on a power purchasing agreement (ppa) concept. He asked for more detailed information about this vision of a very competitive and truly sustainable way of generating energy, creating jobs, and developing the skill pool and the technical know-how of the local industry in countries around the world.
