The power industry has formed a new pattern with big power companies as mainstay and supplemented by the small and medium power companies serving the whole power industry.”, Yang Kun expressed in his speech. “In one hand, small and medium power companies have been given a brand new and important position with plenty of market opportunities, but in the other hand, challenges such as financing issues, manpower shortage, fiercely competitive market, collaboration difficulties etc. would be also faced and needed to be overcome. As the leading Association in the power industry, CEC would actively assist the small and medium companies in the power industry through the newly set-up branch and build up a professional platform for policy consultation, industry communication and coordination, technical and financing consultation.”
Li Chuangjun introduced: “The small and medium-sized enterprises played an important role for the development of the clean energy industry and the energy transformation. The establishment of the Small and Medium Enterprises Branch of CEC is a very timely decision. It is an important measure to meet the new market demand.”

Based on energy and power industries, the Small and Medium Enterprises Branch of CEC has built a platform to accelerate the cooperation and innovations of the small and medium enterprises in the power industry. It is an important measure for CEC to serve the small and medium enterprises, reflecting attention and support of an industrial association.
