China's Photovoltaic Enterprises Overseas Strategic Upgrading

- Sep 19, 2017-

China energy storage network: once, more than 90% of China's photovoltaic products exported overseas;Nowadays, the local market has become the main direction of enterprises, and overseas strategies have been upgraded from simple selling products to overseas factories and construction plants.

Recently, the crystal energy and German companies in Shanghai heraeus's pv announced, will together to create higher efficiency, lower cost of a new generation of super photovoltaic cell, at the same time, the two sides will jointly explore "neighbourhood" all the way along the route of new energy market.

Crystal energy CEO Chen Kangping said, new energy is the key of the "area" initiative cooperation areas, with ever increasing competitiveness, China's new energy companies are vigorously explore overseas markets, speed up the global business layout.

In march, crystal energy was awarded the ABU dhabi sveham photovoltaic power project.The project, which is expected to generate 1177 megawatts of electricity, is the largest project to be disclosed in the world.Last July, crystal energy won a 188 megawatt solar pv project in Mexico.

In recent years, China's photovoltaic enterprises have set up factories abroad to expand overseas production.Tianhe has built four production bases in Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam and the Netherlands. Today, it has more than 2.5 gigawatts of capacity overseas.The company has set up factories and research and development centers in Malaysia to accelerate the overseas layout of new energy products and technologies.

According to the data released by the ministry of industry and information technology, China's photovoltaic enterprises have overseas production capacity of more than 20 countries, and the trend of production distribution is obvious.In 2016, China's exports of wafers, batteries and components were about $13.84 billion, down 11.3% year on year.

In view of the global market environment, the global pv demand is increasing rapidly thanks to the increasing emphasis on environmental protection and the falling cost of pv.According to the German solar association, global pv capacity increased by about 30 per cent year-on-year in 2016.The biggest growth driver is China.

In the opinion of experts, China is the world's largest market for photovoltaic applications, but the share of production is larger. Therefore, expanding the overseas market "territory" is the inevitable choice.

China's photovoltaic demand accounts for 40 per cent of the world's share, but accounts for more than 80 per cent of global production, says liu shuai, a China utility and new energy analyst at ubs securities.Therefore, overseas market is still the important strategic position of pv enterprises.In recent years, solar pv demand in India, the United States, the Middle East, Africa and other regions has grown rapidly, becoming the main site for the overseas distribution of China's photovoltaic enterprises.

"To create a green and low-carbon corridor along the One Belt And One Road, China has both an industrial advantage and a technological edge in this regard."Du xiangwan, an academician of the Chinese academy of engineering, said that the world's energy is accelerating towards a clean, low-carbon and efficient era, and that energy and technology innovation is highly active.From the perspective of long-term energy security, China wants to seize the strategic commanding heights of future energy technology.

However, in the view of experts, photovoltaic, wind and other renewable energy scale applications rely on further cost reduction and energy storage technologies.

In recent years, the rapid development of China's photovoltaic industry attracts the attention of international market.Has a history of more than 160 years of global top 500 enterprises heraeus's global photovoltaic business headquarters in Shanghai, at the same time, rising in China in the field of photovoltaic research and development and investment, improve the efficiency of the battery, battery production cost.

'China is the world's largest photovoltaic market,' said Mr. Li, the President of the company.In order to always be at the forefront of the market, we need to follow the pulse of China and Asian markets, so he put pv headquarters in Shanghai.

In China, the gap between the cost of photovoltaic power generation and the cost of conventional power generation is getting smaller, Mr. Li said.With the continuous development of technology and the increasing maturity of the industry chain, it is believed that the time will come soon.
