China Sunergy at the 2nd India Solar Energy Summit

China Sunergy Co., Ltd. (Nasdaq: CSUN) ("China Sunergy" or the "Company"), a specialized solar cell and module manufacturer, today announced that the Company is a platinum sponsor of the 2nd India Solar Energy Summit (the "Summit") to be held on February 23 and 24, 2012 in New Delhi. Stephen Cai, CEO of China Sunergy, will speak at noon on February 23, 2012 to the Summit audience, which will include solar developers, solar solution providers, Indian government agencies, and other key players in the industry. As one of the leading Chinese solar module suppliers in India, China Sunergy is in a good position to reflect on the growth opportunities in the Indian market, which is an important part of the Company’s future business development.

With its vast size and tropical climate, India offers huge potential for solar power generation. India receives approximately 3,000 hours of sunshine every year, equivalent to over 5,000 trillion kWh, according to government estimates. India’s solar PV market grew by 75% in 2010 and 50% in 2011. In addition, the Indian government’s Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM), with its strong support and incentive policies, is evidence of India’s determination to become a global leader in solar energy adoption. Chinese manufacturers including CSUN have played a major role in supplying technologically advanced and good quality modules to build up India’s installed solar capacity.

The 2nd India Solar Energy Summit is a key forum for informative and inspiring discussions pertaining to India’s current needs and its ambitious future. In the Summit, there will be presentations addressing various topics such as India’s roadmap to global solar leadership, energy security, government policy support, experience from India’s early years in the solar industry, technological and operational challenges, financing alternatives, ways of cooperating with overseas suppliers and governments, and examples of best practices at national and state level to promote solar energy.

Stephen Cai, CEO of China Sunergy, expressed: "We are excited to participate in the Summit as a sponsor and keynote speaker. The event offers us a good chance to strengthen relationships with industry leaders and relevant government officials in India and to demonstrate how committed we are to helping India achieve its goal of being a world leader in solar energy. China Sunergy, which has already supplied panels to two of the biggest solar projects in Gujarat, India, is fully committed to growing our market share in India and ensuring that we are the first choice for developers in India."
