WUXI, China and LONG BEACH, Calif., Sept. 21 /Xinhua-PRNewswire/ -- Suntech Power Holdings Co., Ltd. (NYSE: STP), one of the world's leading manufacturers of photovoltaic (PV) cells and modules, today announced that Dr. Zhengrong Shi, Suntech's Chairman and CEO, will participate in the CEO Panel to be held next week at the Solar Power 2007 Conference and Expo in Long Beach, California, North America's largest solar energy event.

The Solar Power 2007 CEO Panel will feature leaders from some of the industry's largest solar manufacturers. They will be asked to speculate on the future of solar energy, including questions such as:

    -- When will solar reach grid parity (without subsidies) in the U.S. and
       Europe?
    -- Has the module supply shortage ended?
    -- How will the influx of new silicon production affect the industry in
       the next two to three years?
    -- How can utilities change their existing business models to make solar
       part of their business rather than a competitor to their business?
    -- What percentage of the total developed-world energy mix could
       realistically eventually be provided by solar electricity and in what
       timeframe?

The Solar Power 2007 Conference and Expo is being held September 24 - 27, 2007 at the Long Beach Convention Center; please visit Suntech's exhibition booth in Hall B, Booth 364. The Solar Power 2007 CEO Panel event is scheduled for Wednesday, September 26th at 8:30 am Pacific Time.

About Solar Power 2007

The Solar Power Conference and Expo was created in 2004 when the Solar Electric Power Association (SEPA) and the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) joined together in partnership to fill an obvious void: the U.S. was missing a business-to-business solar conference and expo. With an industry growth rate of more than 40 percent per year, there was a need for a single event where industry could come together with potential customers, policymakers, investors, and other parties necessary for continued rapid growth. Solar Power 2007 is now recognized as the premiere solar event in the U.S. http://www.solarpowerconference.com .
