PV Group - Recommendations for China PV Policy Roadmap, China's Solar Future
NEW! Recommendations for China PV Policy Roadmap
The report prepared by SEMI PV Group, the SEMI China PV Advisory Committee, and the China PV Industry Alliance (CPIA) recommends that, using IEA Solar PV Roadmap as a benchmark, China reach a global average PV electricity penetration level of 1.3% PV electricity by 2020, and 4.6% PV electricity by 2030. A dramatic increase in government support will be required to achieve these goals. China will need to have 60GW installed PV capacity by year 2020 and 270GW by year 2030. China’s current PV power consumption is less than 1GW - well below Japan, USA and many European countries.
The report presents an overview of China’s energy profile, growing need for energy, the benefits of PV, and the global status of the PV industry. It delineates a PV installation roadmap with clear annual targets up to year 2030. The report also looks at different government incentive models and offers a number of policy recommendations. These recommendations are a follow-up to the China policy paper issued by SEMI PV Group in 2009.
