In The Next Three Years, China Will Become The World's Largest Market For Pv

- Sep 23, 2017-

China's energy storage network: China, which has been the world's no. 1 for years, has seen explosive growth in the market for pv this year.

On September 19, interface of journalists in jinan, shandong province "in 2017, the first China household use pv conference" on learned that this year China will become the world's second big for pv market, the next three years is likely to overtake America as the world's most large with photovoltaic market.

Photovoltaic (pv) is a part of the distributed photovoltaic (pv) category, which is tied with the industrial and commercial photovoltaic (pv) project, etc.According to the eu standard, the household photovoltaic system is generally under 10 kw.

The IHS Markit, a senior analyst at xie feng said at the meeting, the current global pv market facing resources gradually from centralized to distributed process, it has been in the United States and Europe and other countries was very obvious.

In 2016, the global photovoltaic system accounted for 7.6 percent of all new installations in the photovoltaic system, and more than 99 percent of the new installations were in the americas, Asia and Europe.In 2021, according to IHS Markit agency expects global household photovoltaic system proportion is expected to rise to 11.7%, of which Asia will surpass America as the world's largest household photovoltaic market, and will be more than the sum of the americas and Europe market.

As the main force in the Asian region, China's household pv market has experienced the first inkling of 2015, and its emergence in 2016, and the process of blowout development in 2017.

In 2015-2016, the pv market in China only remained at 0.15-0.5 GW, while the photovoltaic market in 2017 showed blowout growth.IHS Markit agency predicts this year, China had installed around 400000 sets of household photovoltaic system, according to each set of 5 kw power calculation, the household photovoltaic power for the whole year will be more than 2 gw, will become the second large photovoltaic market.

"In the next three years, it is thought that the state could overtake the us as the world's largest photovoltaic market."According to xie, China will maintain a steady rise in the pv market in 2017 and 2020, with a total domestic pv market of 3.6GW in 2021.

At present, the largest pv market in China is located in the east coast, mainly in jiangsu and zhejiang provinces, shandong, anhui and jiangxi provinces.He pointed out that in the next three to five years, the domestic market will gradually shift to guangdong, hubei and hunan.

Compared with other countries in Europe and the United States, the Chinese household has a late start in pv market, which is related to the national electricity price setting system.China's consumer electricity price is very low, industrial and commercial electricity is relatively high, the United States and Europe and other countries are opposite, so the household system is better suited to the needs of European and American users.

In Shanghai, for example, the maximum price for residents is 0.061 yuan/degree during the day, and the company can't make a profit at that price.Xie feng suggested that photovoltaic manufacturers and participants should try more to reduce system costs and explore business models.

In addition, the lack of renewable energy subsidies is one of the problems that the photovoltaic enterprises need to face.China energy investment investment association professional committee of experts consultant wang sj said at the meeting, China's subsidies gap will reach 240 billion yuan in 2020, now has about three-quarters of the grid photovoltaic (pv) project didn't get subsidies.

Counselor of the state council, China renewable energy institute honorary director feldspar atlas, points out that the current state subsidies fully in place is difficult, household photovoltaic enterprises must further reduce the cost of electricity and installed.

China should make more preferential policies for the pv market to promote the development of the photovoltaic industry, shi said.For example, it can be combined with new rural construction to increase the proportion of photovoltaic roofs in village renovation, and even a "national multi-million roof plan" will be issued during the "fourteenth" period.In addition, it can be used for reference in developed countries such as Europe and the United States, for example, the United States provides tax rebates for household use of pv users.
