Two enterprises from Quzhou in Zhejiang Province presented their product offerings Tuesday at the first China International Supply Chain Expo (CISCE) in Beijing, seeking opportunities to go global.
"We hope to find more cooperative opportunities through this expo," said Han Peng, an exhibitor from DAS Solar at the exhibition area for clean energy. DAS Solar is a solar cell and module technology company based in the city of Quzhou, southeastern China's Zhejiang province.
Specializing in the R&D, manufacturing and sales of high-efficiency photovoltaic cells, components and system applications, as well as power station investment, construction and operation, DAS Solar is a comprehensive service provider dedicated to providing full-scenario photovoltaic new energy system application solutions. Last year, the company ranked eighth in the world for module shipments, and third for N-type module shipments.
Since the company was founded in 2018, it has taken the lead in deploying N-type solar cells and also built China's first high-efficiency TopCon battery production line in 2019. At present, the laboratory efficiency of its N-type TopCon 4.0 solar cells exceeds 26.33%, and the mass production rate exceeds 25.8%.

"Our overseas customers are mainly from Europe, so we want to make good use of the CISCE platform to expand our clientele," Han said. The company is set to accelerate its globalization in order to deliver sustainable clean energy to more parts of the world.
Besides the high-tech clean energy enterprise, Zhejiang Aijia Food Co. Ltd., a fruit and vegetable company from Quzhou, has also shined at the CISCE.
"Our Changshan grapefruit juice has attracted a large number of tasters since the first day of the event," said Zeng Ying, an exhibitor from Zhejiang Aijia Food Co. Ltd.
In 2014, Aijia spent more than CNY 350 million (USD 49.05 million) setting up a business in the Changshan County Industrial Park in Quzhou, the home of Changshan grapefruit.
As of 2023, the annual output of the fruit in Changshan county reached 120,000 metric tons.
To promote the juice, Aijia is constantly optimizing the product's flavor and storage technology and has constructed a standardized production base, a digital fruit selection center, a warehousing and processing workshop, and a product R&D center. The company is working to boost the Changshan grapefruit industry toward a high-end, green, digital, and integrated development.
"We hope to use the platform of the CISCE to let more people from all over the world get to know and purchase our products," Zeng added.
