China and Israel to collaborate on solar energy

The heads of China’s Suntech Power Holdings Co. Ltd., the world’s largest maker of solar panels, met with executives of Israel’s solar energy industry in an effort to increase the dialogue on solar energy between the two countries.

The meeting, which comes in the wake of the signing of another agreement between Israel and China to build the Eilat railway, was arranged by the Israel Export and International Cooperation Institute and included executives of Pythagoras Solar Ltd., Solaris Synergy Ltd., Watts and More Ltd., bsolar Ltd., and SolarBead Ltd.

“Israel is a growing market in the solar energy industry, and we hope to deepen the dialogue with Israeli companies in the field to better understand their technologies and expand our activity and bring it to new levels,” said Suntech CTO Dr. Stuart Wenham, according to Globes.
