And also he extended his gratitude to all the leaders, experts, and foreign and domestic guests and representatives for their vigorous support of and proactive participation in this Conference, their long-term support of the China Solar Thermal Electricity Conference and the CNSTEA, their contribution to our country’s cause of utilizing solar thermal energy, and joint witness of the growing and flourishing industry of solar thermal electricity in China.
Dr. Wang Zhifeng, Chairman of the Conference, gave a conference summary 
At the closing ceremony, Dr. Wang Zhifeng, Chairman of the Conference from the Institute of Electrical Engineering of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, performed high-level, systemic and comprehensive summarizations and valuations on 68 in-depth oral presentations and 24 posters delivered in this conference and summarized highlights in the reports at this Conference, such as solar thermal electricitygeneration technology, foreign and domestic policies, engineering investment, cost, and electricity price trend forecasts.
 Attendees visited the large-size salt melting system self-developed by LIANTES
In the afternoon, more than 100 attendees observed the operation of the first domestic large-size solar salt melting system with molten salt self-developed by LIANTES Energy Co., Ltd.
The “China Solar Thermal Electricity Conference” is another brand conference created by the Solar Thermal Alliance based on the consecutive eight Sanya International Forums for Solar Thermal Electricity Technology and positioned as a technical conference for solar thermal electricity generation with due consideration of hot topics on industrial development. Whether at the pioneering stage or in the unfolding development period, the China Solar Thermal Electricity Conference keeps consistent from beginning to end, adheres to deep, professional and authoritative characteristics, serves the solar thermal energy utilization industry attentively and persistently, and always follows a path of making innovation for goods.
Now is an important turning moment for the development of the solar thermal electricitygeneration industry. The first batch of national solar thermal electricity demonstration projects progress concerning its progress has become a focus among practitioners in the photo-thermal industry. We need to carry forward the spirit of innovation to meet the challenges and brace for advent of an era of increasing quality and improving efficiency in the solar thermal electricity generation industry. It is a new starting point and a new journey. Those engaged in the photo-thermal industry will surely boost the innovation and development of solar thermal electricitygeneration and solar heating industries through another innovation exchange. We wish our country’s cause of utilizing solar thermal electricity prosperity and success. We are looking forward to our reunion next year!
