China targets the high-end market for photovoltaic power generation
According to Reuters, China expects to dominate the high-end market for solar photovoltaic power generation. In recent years, the solar photovoltaic power generation industry has grown rapidly and become one of the major growth markets in the world.
According to the report, China plans to implement the “Photovoltaic Runners Program”, which will promote the development of a high-performance solar photovoltaic cell mass market for the entire solar photovoltaic power generation industry. At present, high-performance solar photovoltaic cells are mainly used in high-tech products such as satellites.
China's implementation of the "Photovoltaic Runners Program" will make the price of high-performance solar photovoltaic cells "more accessible", which will likely promote the further development of the solar photovoltaic industry, as well as other internationally renowned solar photovoltaic cell manufacturers, such as CSI Astor, REC Solar, Sharp, etc., form a lot of competitive pressure.
According to the 2017 “Photovoltaic Runners Program”, the China Energy Administration stated that China plans to increase the installed capacity by 8 to 10 GW based on the existing total installed capacity of 80 GW of solar photovoltaic power.
Stanford University wrote in the 2017 Global Solar Photovoltaic Industry Report: "This transformation will have a profound impact on the global solar photovoltaic industry. It is worth noting that this move will help China to focus on solar energy research and development. The front echelon in the country."
According to statistics released by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IREA) based in Abu Dhabi, the cumulative installed capacity of solar photovoltaic power generation in the world has soared from 1 GW in 2000 to approximately 300 GW now, and this figure It may double in 2020.
The rapid growth of the global solar photovoltaic industry is largely dependent on polycrystalline silicon solar cells. Although the photovoltaic energy conversion efficiency of polycrystalline silicon solar cells is not as good as that of monocrystalline silicon solar cells, the price is lower, and the current price is less than 50 cents/watt (about 3.3 yuan/watt).
However, as China increases the production of monocrystalline silicon solar cells, the price gap between the two types of batteries is gradually narrowing. Longji Green Energy Technology Co., Ltd. is one of the major solar photovoltaic cell manufacturers in China. The head of the company's quality management department said that they are increasing their investment in monocrystalline silicon solar cells. "The market share of monocrystalline silicon solar cells." Can be significantly increased from the current 1/5 to more than 50%".
