India Solar loan interest rates continue to decline

Polaris solar PV net news: Mercom Capital said in a newly published an analytical report found India Solar project falling lending rates, making low price solar project more feasible.

<br />
India Solar loan interest rates continue to decline

The company expects the 2016 Q4, India domestic solar project financing average interest rate is lower than 11%, down more than 11.5% over the last year, which made less than 5 India rupees (US $0.073) project viable.

Mercom said India non-capitalization process to public utilities and banking has brought additional funding, which is perhaps one reason for the relatively low interest rates. Also, due to the falling prices of components and systems, internal rate of return (IRR) is beginning to improve, builders ‘ expectations rose to 13-20%, whereas banks are conservative estimates for 11-19%

India’s solar industry continues to grow rapidly, Mercom estimated to be 2016 installation 4.2 GW, and this year will amount to 9 GW. Investment in this area is booming, 2016 Q4 investment of US $736 million, as well as a India Solar developers listed (IPO).

Japan 2016 4 3 electricity from solar power

Polaris solar network from 2012 after the introduction of higher solar subsidies, Japan a lot of imported solar power plant, the annual installed capacity exceeds 10GW. Japan economy, trade and industry (METI) statistics showed that Japan contributed to the solar power plant in 2016, for the National 4.3% of electricity.

<br />
Japan 2016 4.3% electricity from solar power

Japan natural energy Consortium (Renewable Energy Institute) analysis of data provided by METI, estimates Japan 2016 as a whole among national electricity, 4.3% from solar photovoltaic power generation, less 2.7% there was a significant growth in 2015. In good sunshine condition second to third quarter of fiscal year 2016 (2016 4 respectively in June and July-September), solar power contributions of 5% and 6% respectively.

All types of renewable energy electricity in 2016 to the Japan electric power demand contributions have come to 14.2%, the highest of which is hydro-electric power, solar PV is the second. Because Japan wind, biomass and geothermal power development of smaller, and therefore contributions are low.

PV Magazine points out that in Japan supported tightening the case of solar energy, solar power is not likely to substantially increased proportion. Each area power grid capacity has its limits even 30 days a year in parts of “do not buy” program, which each year will have 30 days to get FIT to support electricity generated through the loopback network.

, Including EnergyTrend, from all walks of life agreed that Japan’s solar market will exit from the ranks of the world’s top three needs, and gradually moved towards stabilization phase.

2016 year increase grid connected PV capacity in China probably broken more

Polaris solar PV net news: China PV in 2016, there is still a very significant growth. According to data released by China’s national energy administration, 2016 PV grew 81.6% in 2015 compared with many national cumulative PV also beat 77GW mark, continues to be the world’s first.

<br />
2016 year increase grid-connected PV capacity in China probably broken more than 77GW

At the end of 2015, China replaced Germany as the world’s highest cumulative amount of grid-connected PV country, its development continues and no one can. According to the National Energy Board on January 16, issued by the “national electric power industry statistics” in 2016, new grid-connected photovoltaic capacity reached 34.24GW, representing an increase of 2015 81.6%; cumulative PV also came to 77.42GW.

Than the “national electric power industry statistics” related information, grid-connected photovoltaic growth rate is the highest among all energy sources, followed by nuclear power, grid-connected content increases 23.8% addition to wind power, to 13.2% per cent a year in the third. Comparatively, new grid-connected capacity of thermal power stations and hydro annual increase of only 5.3% and 3.9%, respectively.

105GW is here

China’s national energy Administration set “Thirteen-Five” solar PV cumulative installed capacity during target-”105GW”, says it is only based on the target and not the limit, than in recent years but does not alleviate the abandoned power cuts that and subsidy distribution, device scale by 2020 will be accepted, is still unclear.

If a threshold of 105GW, 2017-2020 this 4 years than among the rest of the grid space 30GW, but China has made solar indicators-common ground-station index appended with the 18.1GW,2016 the end of the leader programmes about 6GW, PV 5.6GW on poverty reduction, is approaching the 30GW mark, and that have not yet joined the distributed PV.

China PV system will “Thirteen-Five” more than 105GW, which is now a certainty. The Chinese Government has, through the “Thirteen-Five” energy plan that will facilitate distributed PV to balanced regional development and photovoltaic power generation to reach parity in 2020, making PV transition away from dependence on subsidies, but how to ensure that the subsidy before the real issue with the stable growth of the industry, is the real problem lies.

2017 silver decline in demand will continue in the PV industry

Polaris solar PV net news: 2017 silver solar energy needs from the record highs, copper instead of threats. According to leading analysts, silver used in photovoltaic cells will remain strong in 2017 and become an increasingly important source of demand, second only to the solar energy industry last year hit a new record.

2017 silver prices will rise, solar panel manufacturers will continue to reduce the battery front and back coating of silver, a trend that began in silver prices soared to nearly $50 per ounce in 2008-2011. Research is pushing for much more cheaper copper instead of silver.

Due to slow new photovoltaic device planned for 2017, “metal-focused” consulting firm said, “we expect demand for photovoltaic panels of silver this year will be slightly slower, though will continue to remain in the global times in 2016, the second high. ”

News and data provider Thomson Reuters, a division of-GFMS, said the solar industry in 2015 more than last year and bought 11% silver, the main use of this is the only growth. It is headquartered in Washington with silver mines, smelters, retailers and Industry Association’s latest estimates based on silver. This makes the silver market demand fell by 9%, and Silver’s daily average prices increased 9% per cent in 2016.

<br />
2017 silver decline in demand will continue in the PV industry

▲ Industrial total silver demand and PV industry

According to “metal-focused” the latest data, though much of the jewellery, silverware and silver investment demand dropped last year, but the total amount of industrial growth by 3%, silver high demand from the solar industry is a “key driver”. However, according to the October “PV technology roadmap (ITRPV)” the latest data last year, due to the amount of savings, leading new photovoltaic cells compared with ten years ago, only one-fifth of silver.

Now in the new silver used in photovoltaic cells cost under the current price of just less than 5 cents. According to data compiled by Bloomberg, as global capacity growth and new competition, forcing some manufacturers to sell their products in case of loss, spot buying price of photovoltaic cells for December fell to 36 cents per watt, or about $1.45 each battery.

According to the Association of silver metal analysts CRU12 report, “Bank accounted for 15-25% of the total manufacturing cost of solar panels”. “As a result, it has become the main focus of reducing costs. ”

<br />
2017 silver decline in demand will continue in the PV industry

• Each battery silver

“Metal-focused,” said, “starting in 2011, manufacturers try to reduce the amount of silver used in photovoltaic cells, when silver prices close to record prices in the spring. According to the industry data, “best” PV products each battery’s average silver content dropped from 10 years ago, more than half a gram of just 0.1 grams.

2016 continues to conserve momentum now means “World silver consumption growth,” less favourable than 25% new solar energy capacity increases, but “in the past few years, savings rate has slowed markedly. “” In view of the current state of knowledge, “Germany Hayes gold and silver refinery Singapore technician AMO·sitasen in 2015, Dr PV business unit said,” it’s hard to imagine how silver can be replaced, because there is no other material can meet the requirements of price in a similar way. ”

“Silver high process stability is also very good. “However, alternative research continues,” you are using copper instead of Silver’s investment, “Reuters quoted Council Secretary-General yuehan·siminuo in 2016, the second half of the global solar said.

Although in 2011 after prices soared from the so-called “film” to “thin” batteries, “containing silver and aluminum metal paint/ink is used in the current technology the most critical and the most expensive non-silicon materials. ITRPV said. Crystalline silicon PV is the most common type of solar panel.

“As a result, needs to reduce paint consumption … This is very important, because silver prices are expected to remain high. “Silver remains the most widely used c-Si batteries is expected to front side metallization materials, but it faced real challenges from less-expensive copper, according to Jutta Trube ITRPV Dr, 2018 could begin mass production by 2026 will account for 25% of the market.

2016-2017-national electric power supply and demand situation analysis

In 2016, the growth in national electricity situation grew, power conversion and consumption structure continued to feature. Total electricity consumption rose 5%, growth is an increase of 4%. Run in the real economy shows steady good signs, summer heat, under the low base effect from a year earlier, three or four quarters of growth in power consumption of the whole society more quickly. Tertiary industry electricity volume growth 11.2%, continued keep high growth, displayed services consumption pull China economic growth role highlight; urban and rural residents life electricity volume growth 10.8%; secondary electricity volume compared growth 2.9%, manufacturing electricity volume compared growth 2.5%, manufacturing in the of four high energy industry total electricity volume compared zero, and equipment manufacturing, and emerging technology and the mass consumer industry growth momentum better, reflect manufacturing industry structure adjustment and transformation upgrade effect continues to appeared, Structural optimization of power consumption. National-caliber power capacity by the end of 1.65 billion kilowatt, rose 8.2%, excess power supply capacity further increase in local areas; non-fossil fuel electricity continued to grow rapidly, further to 4,165 hours hours of thermal power equipment, since 1964, the annual minimum. Coal supply and demand situation from loose to tight in the second half in the first half, overall electricity supply and demand easing, some regions of the country relatively surplus.

Looking ahead to 2017, electricity demand growth is expected to be slower than in 2016; the year installed a little over 100 million-kilowatt, power generation capacity at the end of about 1.75 billion kilowatts, raising the proportion of non-fossil fuel generation capacity further to about 38%; national electricity supply capacity overall surplus, excess in some areas. Hours further reduced to about 4,000 hours of thermal power equipment, power coal prices continue to run high, some provinces power user transactions larger price cuts and deals continue to expand outside power generation cost effective to dredge, coal and electricity enterprises will be further compressed, production and operation of enterprises continue to face serious challenges.

In 2016, the national electric power supply and demand

(A) electricity consumption grew, three or four quarterly growth

2016 national 5.92 trillion kWh of electricity consumption of the whole society, rose 5%, 4% increase over the previous year; each and every quarter over quarter growth 3.2% (deducting the leap-year factor increase of 2.1%), and 2.1%, and 6.5%. Sustained a wide range in the summer heat, the 2015 period low base running, real economy showed steady signs of getting better is the main cause of growth improved in the third quarter. After four quarters, consumption maintained stable and relatively fast growth of the whole society, apart from low base a year earlier, mainly because the real economy running steadily getting better more clear signs. In national advance to capacity policy, and infrastructure investment fast growth, and real estate and car market warmer, integrated effect Xia, building materials, and black and nonferrous metals smelting, important production price General is rose situation, market expected improved, its main products production growth gradually improve; also, traffic transport electrical electronic equipment, and General and the dedicated equipment manufacturing, equipment manufacturing, and style supplies manufacturing, and wood processing and the furniture products industry, mass consumer industry growth also gradually rose, Support maintained a fast growth in consumption of the whole society.

Power consumption main features are:

One is the growth rate of secondary industries and the manufacturing sector improved over the previous year, transformation and upgrading of industrial structure adjustment and the effect continues to emerge. Secondary industry consumption rose 2.9%, is growing much faster than the previous year and 3.7% 2.5% growth in manufacturing sector, growth of 3.1% increased over the previous year. In the manufacturing industries, electricity growth industry of ferrous metal smelting, as well as low growth of chemicals, non-ferrous metal smelting industry behind manufacturing sector growth after the last three, and building materials industries in sixth place. In addition to high energy-consuming industry, most other manufacturing industries to maintain a certain level of growth, including equipment manufacturing, new technology and good momentum of growth in the consumer packaged goods industry, reflecting the current transformation and upgrading of industrial structure adjustment in manufacturing and the effect continues to emerge.

Second, the industry Power consumption of the tertiary industry and its rapid growth. Corresponding to the service sector maintained a fast growth, consumption of the tertiary industry rose 11.2%. Among them, the power in information transmission computer services and software industry grew 15%, continuing the momentum of rapid growth in recent years; transport, storage and postal services electricity consumption of 11.3%, 6.3% increase over the previous year, growth in power consumption for urban public transport 22.3%, electrified railway power 12.5%, reflect transportation energy alternatives in the area was strengthened.

Third, urban and rural residential electricity consumption is increasing rapidly. Annual electricity consumption rose 10.8%, 5.8% increase over the previous year, affected by temperature factor driving larger, in which the growth of 18.4% in the third quarter, a 10-year growth rate of urban and rural residents consumption quarter high; in addition, as China’s urbanization rate and level of electrification of the residents gradually improved, household consumption has been steadily increasing.

Four is the continuing growth momentum in converting power consumption, consumption continues to adjust. From electricity growth power see, 2016, secondary, and tertiary industry and urban and rural residents life electricity volume respectively pull society electricity volume growth 2.1, and 1.4 and 1.4%; secondary in the of four high energy industry on society electricity volume growth pull for zero, current, society electricity volume growth main power from Qian some years of traditional high energy industry, continued to services, and life electricity, and emerging technology industry and the mass consumer industry conversion.

Power consumption structure, in 2016, one or two, and urban and rural residential electricity consumption accounted for the proportion of electricity consumption of the whole society are 1.8%, 71.1%, 13.4% and 13.6%. Compared with the previous year, and the percentage of urban and rural residents consumption of the tertiary industry 0.7%; proportion of secondary industry 1.5%, four 1.5% reduction in proportion of total electricity consumption in high energy-consuming industry, visible, decline in proportion of secondary industries of electricity due to high energy-consuming industry decline.

Five is the East, the growth rate of electricity consumption in the central region’s leading before and after low-high trend. Eastern, Central, Western and Northeast China respectively growth in total electricity consumption, 5.9%, and 5.4% and 2.7% and East and central region’s electricity situation is relatively good, is the electricity the main engine of growth. Quarterly trend of electricity were low in all regions after trends, electricity improve more obvious since the second half of the regions.

(B) generating capacity growth, surplus power supply capacity in General

In 2016, the main electric power enterprise’s total investment grew by 3.3%. At the national distribution network construction and transformation plan of action and a new round of upgrading rural power grids and other policy guidance, grid investments grew by 16.9%, which accounted for 58% power grid with a total investment of 110,000 volts and below the grid investment rose 35.6%; to promote orderly development of coal-fired power stations under the influence of a range of policy measures, such as, power investments fell 12.9%.

In 2016, the national net generating capacity of 120 million kW, 21.86 million-kilowatt less than the previous year, including a net increase of non-fossil energy generation capacity of 72 million-kilowatt, close to last year’s level, while coal and electricity net scale down 11.54 million-kilowatt, control the pace of investment, optimize investment structure of electric power industry’s effects begin to emerge. By the end of 2016, national-caliber power generation capacity of 1.65 billion kilowatt, rose 8.2%, non-fossil energy 600 million kilowatts, share of the total generating capacity over the same 1.7%. Annual national total diameter capacity of 5.99 trillion kWh, an increase of 5.2%; 3,785 hour using hour of power generation equipment, compared with 203 reduction in hours.

Power supply the main features are:

A net increase of installed capacity of thermal power is decreased over the previous year, equipment utilization hours the lowest since 1964. In 2016, the thermal power investment rose to 0.9%, of which coal investments fell 4.7%, reversing the previous two years the momentum of sustained, rapid growth of investment in coal; net increase of thermal power installed capacity 53.38 million-kilowatt, down 19.83 million-kilowatt, which coal, electricity and a net increase of 47.53 million-kilowatt, down 11.54 million-kilowatt, coal investment and net size reduction reflects the Government’s policy to promote orderly development of coal-series measures the effect is obvious. The end of 2016, the national thermal power capacity of 1.05 billion kWh, an increase of 5.3% in full aperture, full aperture thermal power generating capacity grew by 2.4%, from 2013 to achieve positive growth for the first time. Equipment utilization hours of 4,165, reduced to 199 hours over the previous year.

Second hydropower investment decreased for four consecutive years, hours to maintain a high level of equipment. Hydropower investment fell 22.4%, has declined for four consecutive years; a net increase of water and electricity installed capacity 12.59 million-kilowatt, which pumped 3.66 million-kilowatt. The end of 2016, the national hydropower capacity of 330 million kW, an increase of 3.9% in full aperture. National hydroelectric generating capacity rose in full aperture of 6.2%, water changes and other factors, characteristics of the annual electricity production of high to low. Equipment utilization hours of 3,621 hours, increase over the previous year for 31 hours, annual third level for nearly 20 years.

Third, wind power investments decrease, Eastern and middle regions of NET installed capacity accounts for half. Wind electric investment declined 25.3%, first appeared declined, declined of area for West and Northeast, compared respectively declined 49.7% and 46.8%, and East, and central area compared respectively growth 35.1% and 13.1%, East, and central area wind electric investment share than last year sharply improve 22%; annual net grid wind electric installed 17.43 million-kilowatt, than last year reduced 16.84 million-kilowatt, which East, and Central share half, more Qian years obviously improve. Wind power investment and production decreased, layout, reflecting the timely adjustment of wind power development, enterprise investment and gradually rationalized, more emphasis on quality and efficiency. National grid-connected wind power installed capacity at the end of 150 million kW, an increase of 13.2%, the total installed capacity for 9%; grid-connected wind power generating capacity 30.1%, uses hour 1742 hours, an increase of 18-hour, but abandoned wind conditions are still prominent in the Northwest and Northeast.

Four are grid-connected solar power capacity and power generation growth, equipment utilization hours declined from the previous year. PV on-grid price period cut policies, such as, the annual net increase of grid-connected solar power installed capacity of 34.79 million-kilowatt, an increase of 1 time, in national planning and policy guidance, more than half net increase of installed capacity is located in the Central and Eastern provinces. Grid-connected solar power capacity by the end of 77.42 million-kilowatt (most of the photovoltaic power generation), rose 81.6%; grid-connected solar power 66.2 billion-kilowatt, and an increase of 72%; grid-connected solar power equipment hours and 1125 hours, fell to 99 hours, drop down expanded 88 hours, abandoned part provinces in Northwest China is more prominent.

Five are nuclear power installed capacity and power generation growth, equipment utilization hours continued to decline. Nuclear power investment compared declined 10.5%; end of national nuclear power installed 33.64 million-kilowatt, and compared growth 23.8%, electricity compared growth 24.4%; equipment using hours 7,042 hours, and compared declined 361 hours, has continuous 3 years declined, which, Liaoning nuclear power equipment using hours for 4,982 hours, main is for Northeast Power excess, and coupled with near two years more Taiwan nuclear power unit gradually production, led to part nuclear power unit drop load run even downtime alternate.

Six trans-regional, TRANS-provincial power growth is an increase. Growth in trans-regional power transmission 6.9%, 4.1% increase over the previous year, spanned volume growth mainly grid power transmission through Northwest UHV delivery to dissolve new energy and hydropower in Southwest. TRANS-provincial electricity output grew 4.8%, over a year earlier to 5.9%, grid sending electricity from West to East in the South grew 3.3%.

Seven is the national coal supply and demand situation from loose to tight, smooth supply of natural gas for power generation in General. Under the influence of coal capacity controlled production policy, decline in coal output fell by significantly more than consumption, resulting in power coal supply and demand imbalance, coal supply and demand situation gradually from a loose parts into tight, tense, sharp rise in coal prices, coal and electricity enterprises operating difficulties. A quarter of national gas demand rebounded, partial natural gas supply for individual regions were affected, and several quarters after overall smooth supply of natural gas for power generation.

(C) national power supply and demand further easing, surplus parts

In 2016, the excess power supply and demand further easing, some regions of the country. Subregional, regional electricity general balance of supply and demand in North, East, Central, southern regional general easing of supply and demand, the Northeast and Northwest regional power supply excess capacity.

Two national power supply and demand situation, 2017 forecast

(A) the growth in electricity consumption of the whole society than in 2016

Considering the macroeconomic situation, services and residential development trends, energy alternatives, real estate and automotive industry policy adjustments, the 2016 summer heat and other factors, at the annual air temperature level case is expected around 2017 national electricity consumption of the whole society grew 3%. Summer or winter extreme climatic fluctuations may lead to consumption of the whole society from top to bottom 1%; in addition, steady growth government policy measures at all levels adjustment may result in fluctuating electricity consumption of the whole society about 0.5%.

(B) capacity continues to just over 100 million-kilowatt, non-fossil energy accounted for further improving

Year national infrastructure added generation capacity around 110 million kilowatts, of which non-fossil fuel generation capacity around 60 million-kilowatt. Expected end of 2017-generating capacity will reach 1.75 billion kilowatts, non-fossil energy generating 660 million kilowatts and the proportion of the total installed capacity will rise to around 38%.

(C) the overall surplus power supply capacity, hours of thermal power equipment to further reduce

National electric power supply capacity in the overall surplus for the year is expected, among them, the regional electricity general balance of supply and demand in North China power grid, East China, central China, overall easing of regional electricity supply and demand in China Southern power grid, Northeast and Northwest China power grid more regional power supply excess capacity. Expected annual electricity generation equipment using hours about 3,600 hours, of which thermal power equipment hours, will fall to about 4,000 hours.

Third, the proposal

(A) persist in power planning guidance to guide, promote implementation of power “Thirteen-Five” development goals

Recently, my “Thirteen-Five” energy planning and planning, special planning released 2017 is the key to conscientiously implement various types of planning year, grasping implement is crucial.

A seriousness and authority is to improve the planning, ensure that the power development “Thirteen-Five” planned landing. Planning is the “Thirteen-Five” of energy and power development programme of action and the preparation of relevant planning guidance document, the layout of the basis for major projects. Recommendations based on the global power industry, strengthen planning and integrated energy planning, other special planning of cohesion, strengthening national planning and coordination of provincial planning convergence, adhered to the project planning guidance, project implementation plans, improve the planning authority.

Second is to improve the planning of scientific, instructive, planning rolling major amendments in a timely manner. During the planning and implementation of various influencing factors are complex and variable. Recommends the strengthening of planning and execution management, improve and implement planned mid-term evaluation mechanisms, relevant research work carried out in a timely manner, the rolling revision of the plan. According to the “Thirteen-Five” program, science set in 2020, 2030 energy consumption structure and objectives, appropriate reasonable interval to maintain power growth and flexibility.

Third, improve their overall planning, coordination, and strengthening local planning guidance and supervision of the work of relevant State departments. At present, the provincial energy (electricity) planning and implementation by the provinces (regions and municipalities). Suggests an increase in total quantity control of provincial electric power planning and involved national layout, and interprovincial transportation of regional power plans, and establish effective supervision and constraint mechanism, inhibition of local unreasonable investment impulse, strict control of coal-electricity development, ease the contradiction between supply and demand of electricity.

(B) improving the forecast and early warning systems and mechanisms to ensure power for economic development under the new normal and smooth operation

At present, China’s economic development into the new normal, the external environment and internal cause changes in the conditions, creating overlays, interactions, power brings a lot of uncertainty principles need to be problem-based, goal-oriented, focused and difficult, early warning, guide, timely action to ensure a smooth-running.

First, strengthening the investigation and analysis on new situation and problems in a timely manner. The “Thirteen-Five” period, the power complex development environment, frequent changes, particularly as decentralization, reform of electric power market, working on project approvals, power gravity sinks. Recommends that the relevant State departments to strengthen grass-roots research, field guide, timely information and analysis of electric power planning and implementation and operation of the new situations and new problems.

Second, improve the forecast and early-warning mechanism, timely manner to reduce risk. Power supply capacity of the current shows surplus, excess coal increased risk, especially in late 2016 unexpected soaring coal prices, all that power risks remain. Recommend a sound estimate index system of early warning mechanisms and, warning levels, and other related information in a timely manner to guide investment directions, science direct investment activities, promote the optimization, development effectiveness, reduce risk, and ensure development.

Third, perfect the policy “Toolkit”, acted in a timely manner. In complex situations, once market failure, an urgent need for government intervention in a timely manner, any policies that are based on research, analysis and discussion. Recommended power run situations and issues that may occur, advance research and planning, forming a series of policy options, according to the market at any time, “card”, a timely response to natural disasters and similar emergencies emergency problems such as soaring coal prices, to improve regulatory efficiency and effectiveness.

(C) the safe operation of new issues to ensure power system safe and stable operation and reliable power supply

Recommendations overall pricing policies of the Government and State-owned capital preservation and appreciation, performance evaluation of State-owned enterprises related mutual cohesion policy, strengthening energy-efficient low-carbon policies in an integrated and coordinated, focused on top-tier design, give full play to industry, strengthen the guiding role of the market mechanism, reduce administrative costs and reduce the burden on enterprises.

Five is the Guide to promote energy alternatives. Adhere to the Government-led, national industrial policy formulation, planning, pricing policies and subsidies and so actively promote energy alternatives, to promote low-carbon clean development, increase the proportion of electric energy in final energy consumption, while promoting increased supply of electric power enterprise distribution, ease the contradiction between supply and demand of electricity.

(Vi) relationship between reform and development, promote sustainable development of power industry

(2015) issued the 9th, greatly mobilized the enthusiasm of the parties involved in the reform, but in the case of matching system is not perfect, imperfect mechanisms, liberalisation power too quickly, easily lead to vicious competition, is not conducive to market development and reform in an orderly fashion, needs to coordinate the relationship between the parties, actively and steadily promote reform.

Is coordinated and integrated power system, State-owned enterprise reform, reform of State-owned assets supervision and management system, such as multiple and industry development, improve relevant policies. Recommendation insists on guaranteed industries running at a reasonable interval and the healthy development of the premise, and promote industry reform and industrial regulation, ordered open electricity market transactions, avoid risk quickly gathered from various negative factors that stack, causing large operating losses of enterprises.

Second, to further improve the market system. Recommend sticking problem-oriented and goal-directed, conscientiously sum up the problems exposed in the power market construction in some areas, further improve the mechanism to further regulate market access, transmission and distribution price approved, trade institutions and other key aspects, a sound credit system construction of power market, established and trustworthy encouragement and punishment mechanism, strengthen direct trade contracts binding, contract implementation.

Third, strengthening the guidance and supervision of the provincial electricity markets work. Recommends that the relevant State departments in market access rules, and market rules, clean energy to dissolve, transmission and distribution price approved to strengthen guidance and supervision, corrected with unreasonable protectionist policies, maintain market order, ensuring effective promotion of electricity market reform.

Four are standard power plant management, and create a market environment for fair competition. As soon as possible perfection of self-provided power plant management policies and regulations, power plant, additional government funds and cross-subsidies imposed in place, contribute effectively to the implementation of policy cross-subsidized electricity prices, while effective regulatory mechanisms to establish and perfect the power plant.

United States renewable energy leader status in jeopardy

Polaris solar PV net news: the new United States President Trump renewable energy is not positive, its tendency to embrace traditional energy and oil shale. But before Trump took office, United States Department of energy (Department of Energy,DOE) has published a report, data: United States solar has more employees than the number of conventional energy.

<br />
United States renewable energy

DOE published by the United States energy and employment report (U.S. Energy and Employment Report), the statistics show, United States in the first quarter of 2016 when the solar power industry reached 374,000, is the largest among all the energy industry, 43%; a 25% figure compared with the previous year. Wind power industry employees 101,738 people, representing a growth of 32%.

Contrast, coal-fired, natural gas, fuel the sum of traditional thermal power employees 151,000 people, although annual growth of 11%, but fewer than half of the solar power industry. Traditional fossil fuel power generation industry in total employment for 187,117 people, accounting for 22% of total power generation industry.

Renewable energy industry growth

DOE report, there are currently about 6.4 million in energy-related industries across the United States in 2016, adding 300,000 people; additional work to the energy industry accounts for United States 14% of 2016 new work.

Coal-fired electricity generating capacity was reduced from between 2006 and 2016, September, 53%, and continues to decline, future employees will also reduce. Compared with gas power generating capacity increased by 33% during this period, solar exposure was increased by 5,000, growing from 508,000MWh to 28,000,000MWh. Therefore, several types of energy between ebb and flow also increases the number of workers.

In addition, the United States between September 2015 to September 2016, distributed solar generation capacity grow by 35%; after the large solar power plants, wind power generation, solar power growth rate for the year came to 52%.

Energy in transition

Report Express: “gradually switching to switch to natural gas in coal-fired power generation, as well as boosting low-carbon energy generation, driven by United States energy mix is changing. That shift reflects on changes in the employee data. Industry increase in the number of natural gas, solar energy, wind energy, mining and other related industries is a decrease in the number of. ”

The independent newspaper (The Independent) cited DOE senior adviser David Foster, said the figures showed that 21st century economic and development direction of energy technologies in the future. He said that, regardless of whether it can continue to push down the price of solar energy and natural gas, or if energy consumption with smart grid and more fuel-efficient cars more popular reduction, energy innovation to the United States are important for the economic growth momentum. Foster said: “after all, in 2016, (energy industries) accounted for 14% of the new work. ”

Trump negative attitudes towards renewable energy related concerns have been undermining United States determination to put into fighting climate change. In June 2013, Obama’s climate action programme (Climate Action Plan) is still able to trump the ruling era continues, all with bated.

According to the latest DOE report shows that the strength of the new energy economic growth cannot be ignored, but if the Trump to implement its energy policy, the independent newspaper pointed out that United States will most likely lose energy leader status.

Strong gains in middle reaches of the solar monocrystalline cell gains the most

Polaris solar PV net news: section in the middle of profits crunch solar polycrystalline silicon wafer and cell since last week after the price increase, up rising, previous losses larger single crystal solar cell prices this week the most obvious section, especially Silicon is still scarce, single Crystal product follow-up rally so far will remain fierce.

Dan Jingjing stick, wafer capacity full up and continue expansion, making China’s polysilicon to February is still in short supply, and sold up to RMB142~145/kg. Since most wafer 1-2 months in advance before finalizing the order, expected before early February polysilicon prices rose steadily, also let non-China poly silicon grade held steady at US$14~15.5/kg.

Polycrystalline silicon wafer prices lift between the two sides, but due to the solar cell price increase has not yet been set, polysilicon prices are still slightly messy, China between the offer of RMB5.15~5.3/pc, Taiwan offers at around US$0.65~0.68/pc. As part of the lunar new year of polycrystalline silicon wafer factory does not fully open, may lack efficient polycrystalline continued making gains after the Chinese new year should be able to stand on the US$0.69/pc.

Longi, Central, two manufacturers of new capacity may be gradually released in 3-4 month, Silicon shortage still no signs of settlement before the March, although leading plant than with coarse open too much price difference, but the rest are still shortages continue to shill on the occasion, the market price has reached US$0.82~0.85/pc, RMB6.2~6.3/pc, silicon chip prices will remain stable in the short term increase.

Single and multi crystalline solar cells this week to increase significantly, the poly-18.4% sold already stands US$0.22/W, conventional single crystal silicon wafer is difficult to buy, less supply, Taiwan between the price rose to US$0.25~0.28/W in one fell swoop. China offers padded polycrystalline RMB1.8/W between RMB1.95~1.98/W, single crystal, compared with China’s monocrystalline cell gains more quietly. As prices have rallied sharply, many battery factories does not finish production in January, and in the battery after installing surge launched in China continue to rise when more can be sold.

Opened up the Middle, and component prices are due to too much capacity hard to pick up. Although some European and American components due to padded cell procurement prices and want to shill, but strong demand outside of China, around the component still does not improve, prices still remain weak.

Distributed PV ushered in the annual household item return daikao

Polaris solar PV net news: the development trends of distributed PV from 2016 to discuss all the way into the year 2017. Due in 2016, the Government’s policy support, distributed PV will be 2017 as the new year in the industry, have high hopes for investment and financing.

<br />
Distributed PV ushered in the

“National PV industry in Jiangsu Province, Jiangsu PV industry accounts for above 50% national 2016 new energy industry of Jiangsu Province achieved sales revenue of more than 400 billion, including photovoltaic industry sales of 280 billion. “A few days ago, in 2016 China PV industry annual meeting, Tang Xuewen, Director of Department of energy new energy in Jiangsu province said,” solar PV development is the core to improve technology and reduce price. But subsidies gap is large, affecting the normal investment income and investment initiative. ”

The end of 2016, solar energy development, national development and Reform Commission issued the “Thirteen-Five” plan clearly 2020 PV installed capacity of not less than 105GW, which distributed PV 60GW above. According to figures released before the National Energy Board, and by the end of 2015, China PV installed capacity up to 43.18GW, distributed PV is only 6.06GW, the next steps of distributed PV will be accelerated.

“Thirteen-Five has a very important idea is the development of renewable energy focus more on using nearest to dissolve, just take, distributed in full compliance with this principle, is the direction of future development. “Tang Xuewen stressed.

According to Trina solar sales Assistant Vice President Sun Ronghua produced data, incomplete statistics, 2016 supports the development of photovoltaic industry policy at the national level there are 14 articles, which distributed PV development significantly accelerated pace, “keywords are subsidies, leader, bidding, distributed with the household system. ”

On one hand, according to the statistics, 2016 1 in October, distributed PV new installed capacity of 3.3 million-kilowatt, an increase of 40%. Until the end of November, distributed in Jiangsu Province installed capacity reached 5.1977 million kW, becoming the largest distributed PV cumulative installed capacity of provinces. The other hand, distributed photovoltaic disposal light, power rationing remains a serious problem, non-technology to improve.

New energy investment group limited company Vice Chairman Han Qinghao said at the meeting: “adjust our strategy this year from large scale ground power plant conversion to distributed, large, ready to make 100,000 households because households are scattered, the target more challenging. ”

In the policy below, the small and medium enterprises have shot layout distributed PV. “Began to appear around Rob roof phenomenon, from Han can, GCL, Trina, Suntech, manufacturers in the layout. “Ray Lee new energy gold roofing Department Chief Zhang Yechun believes, the problem is from large-scale hydropower development to dispersion of small change,” original manufacturers can not adapt to the market, seeking to share like component is a very big problem. In the Internet age, abuse has closed the original pattern. ”

According to the statistics by the national grid by June 2016, State grid within the household PV cumulative installed 22627, rose 226%.

In respect of how to protect household distributed PV project proceeds, intelligent power engineer Wang Shujuan gives new dimension of a set of data.

“Investment residential distributed amount is actually very transparent form, inverter, total of how much money is there. Difference comes from electricity generation, local resources and price. “Wang Shujuan instructions by selected 18 sites throughout the country, covering the high latitudes, solar energy resources and price distribution according to most common household 3KW, 7.5 Yuan project cost estimates. Power generation in the region such as Hohhot, Golmud. Electricity prices, coupled with subsidies, Shanghai and Changchun are in the region.

Consensus is that, in ideal circumstances, no matter where in the country, the price of high or low price, good resource or resource poor, households with distributed project yields are above 10%, is higher than the current deposit interest rates, household distributed really is a better product.

But in the process of implementation, there are many factors that affect the capacity to reduce yields, such as poor quality of equipment, not properly installed and no OPS, poor site selection and design, and so on. Shujuan Wang stressed that “protection, and first of all to pay attention to safety to prevent accidents such as fires, roofs ripped; strict control of PV system components and quality, and refined design, improve the effective index of the power plant. ”

According to finishing, the national grid proposed of initiatives including: across district across province transmission channel of construction, priority arrangements new energy outside sent; strengthening power agreed planning research, optimization layout, reserves outside sent channel project; increased urban and rural distribution grid construction input, speed up upgrade transformation, meet distributed energy access; do pumping storage power station construction work; proposed China thermal power unit adjustable peak transformation planning and plans; vigorously advance power alternative; speed up virtual synchronization generator, micro-grid storage can, “Internet +” Wisdom energy key technology research and application; speed up implementation grid real-time scheduling, carried out across district, across regional of scenery fire joint run; upgrade source network load friendly interactive level, perfect compensation incentive mechanism; optimization scheduling operation, and Manpower sent by paragraph adjustable peak resources, priority using new energy; speed up market mechanism research, promoted conducive to established new energy elimination na of electric price mechanism and quota system; speed up building national power market, active organization new energy across province, across district trading; speed up research power auxiliary service market, Full mobilization thermal power enterprise participation adjustable peak of enthusiasm; and European national established long-term of Exchange and cooperation mechanism; learning abroad of advanced experience, developed for domestic new energy elimination na of programme; carried out grid adapted new energy mass, high proportion access of key technology research; country network company established promote new energy Cortana work led group; will promote new energy elimination na work situation into the Division, the province power company of assessment content; 2017 first quarter, organization held promote China new energy elimination na integrated programme seminar Strengthening with the national development and Reform Commission, Department of energy, local governments and power generation Group communications.

Abandon wind up light problem has now become the new energy industry is one of the most serious problems. According to data issued by the National Energy Board energy regulation in the Northwest, in China in 2016 five Northwestern provinces (districts) up wind power 26.225 billion kWh, abandoned the wind was 33.34%. Among them, abandoned in Gansu and Xinjiang wind up to 43.11% and 38.37%, respectively. Five Northwestern provinces (districts) abandon the electro-optical 7.042 billion kWh, abandon rates 19.81%. Among them, Xinjiang, Gansu, photovoltaic power generation operation more difficult, leaving light 32.23% and 30.45%, respectively.

Focus of clean power to dissolve

However, in order to alleviate the PV to dissolve contradictions, relevant departments have started to adjust the direction, encouraging the development of distributed power plant, expanding the “PV +” comprehensive utilization project, on the light resource advantages of accelerating the construction of powerful network support in the Northwest, increase output capacity, avoid cleaning the waste of energy.

The solar energy development “Thirteen-Five” plan specifically requested to abandon power places, strictly control the centralized PV power plant construction, speeding up the abandoned power that have emerged, taking local absorptive and expanded delivery methods, improve the utilization of centralized PV power plant built and reduce abandon optical power ratio. Meanwhile, in “three North” area of the existing and planned the construction of UHV power delivery channels, in accordance with the principle of preferred stock, optimization of incremental, ordered construction of solar power plants, increasing the proportion of renewable energy in power delivery channel, effectively expanding the “three North” area range solar power to dissolve.

“The installed capacity remained stable growth, leaving marginal improvement of wind power and the degree of industry concentration. According to industry data, from the first quarter last year to abandon wind power situation gradually improved in the third quarter, one-quarter power 26%, half power 21%, power 19% the first three quarters. We also understand that wind power does appear marginal improvement, mainly due to the growth in consumption remained stable, construction of the transmission line, a variety of power (such as: wind turbine heating) applications. “The analysts also said that the” abandon wind up gradually to improve the developer’s cash flow, and cash flow improvement is also conducive to promoting the development of follow-up projects. Wind power industry 2016 bid is expected to be over 30GW, leader in the photovoltaic industry, updated plan poverty alleviation schemes and distributed a considerable scale. We expect in 2016 and wind power lifting for about 23GW,2017 years on the basis of some 15% growth; we expect in 2016 and about 34GW,2017 grid-connected PV installed capacity year on year decline, estimated scale 25GW level. ”

Liaoning over the Hill performance of PV installed capacity up to 520 000

Polaris solar PV net news: in 2016, the net increase of 917,000 kilowatts of renewable energy generation capacity of the whole province, the total installed capacity to break through the 10 million-kilowatt mark (10.482 million kW), renewable electricity when the NET 4.4 billion-kilowatt, total capacity when approaching 20 billion-kilowatt (19.49 billion kWh). Two indexes were both more than expected, the successful implementation of the “Thirteen-Five” plan a great start.

Wind power and photovoltaic power generation performance of two new energy development. Two power generation installed capacity totals a net increase of 916,000 kW, generating a net increase of 1.97 billion kWh. Among them, the joint efforts of the provincial electric power companies and other aspects, and wind up wind across the province the proportion was significantly lower than the previous year, operating more than 1900 hours, in the “three-North region” continue to maintain a healthy and orderly development. PV installed capacity increased from 163,000 kW jumped to 520,000-kilowatt, more than twice times.

Effectiveness of hard, significance should not be underestimated. One is to complete the “Thirteen-Five” of non-fossil fuels in energy consumption constraint target has laid a good foundation, fully reflects the province’s supply side new effects of structural reforms in the energy field. End of 2016, the proportion of renewable energy generation installed total power generation capacity of 22.8%, a 0.7% increase in annual; proportion of renewable electricity total electricity 11.2%, then by 1.9%. With nuclear power, the province’s non-fossil fuel generation capacity accounted for 32.5%, power 22.8%. Two indicators increase velocity was significantly above the national average.

Second, in response to climate change, the fight against air pollution has made a great contribution. The development of clean energy, in particular renewable energy, is the focus of climate change and control of air pollution, Liaoning province. In 2016, by increasing the renewable electricity, equivalent to the consumption of coal decreased by almost 9 million tons, reducing emissions 16.8 million tons of carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide emissions to 142,000 tons.

At present, the proportion of non-fossil fuel electricity generation in the province the province’s electricity consumption has increased to 20% from 6% in 2010, in 2016, a net increase of nearly 5%. Every 10 kilowatt-hours of electricity, 1 kWh of electricity comes from renewable energy, 1 degree comes from nuclear power, more clean energy on the daily life of urban and rural residents.

Third, to drive fixed asset investment, has played an important role in promoting regional economic development. In recent years, due to the three cities of Northwest of Liaoning and Shenyang Northern counties, Jinzhou North County a leaner, wind power and photovoltaic engineering has become a local drive-solid cast and improve sources of kinetic energy, increase employment, fostering new economic development pillar industry. The end of 2016, wind power installed capacity up to 5.81 million-kilowatt these areas, accounted for 83.5% of the normal PV power station installed capacity reached 279,000 kilowatts, accounted for 62.8%. New energy installed capacity up to 1.9 million-kilowatt, Fuxin city, ranking first in the province; capacity of 3.65 billion kWh, 73.7% of the total electricity consumption in the region.

The same time, these areas are also filing state card, Liaoning province, the poor are concentrated, with the next national PV poverty reduction, deepening of poverty-related work and energy, will win the battle provides new support for poverty eradication in the province.

Taoyuan: a little behind schedule, the target this year to catch up with

Taoyuan City is Taiwan one of the highest proportion of green electricity subscription, for the promotion of solar energy is also very positive. Apart from public burial site on January 17 the 3MW-ground power station, longevity, Fuxing district elementary school completed roof of 60 square meters space beyond the solar panels, Taoyuan City Environmental Protection Bureau has also been planning to 150 public service school roof installation of solar energy in the city, after the completion of each year is expected to create more than 20 million of carbon-free electricity.

However, the city environmental protection Bureau said industry construction a little behind schedule, was completed in 2015 50 roofs built in 2016, only 17, the original timetable to complete the two years, which completed less than half. EPA wants industry to speed up the work, completed this year of the remaining 83 roof systems, and power began.

In addition, the city has completed commissioning of school premises of rooftop solar energy systems to power about 7.2 million a year, the equivalent of more than 2,000 households consumption at home, each year for the city to pump NT $7 million additional revenue.

Taichung, Wu will join the ranks of solar energy

Taichung district growing commercial prosperity, electricity consumption increase. In response to carbon reduction and the Government’s determination to develop solar, Taiwan solar energy industry increasingly energy plans to invest NT $460 million yuan in Taichung district set up 3,000 square meters of solar-power systems, is expected to produce 1.3 million a year, creating green electricity to repay revenue reached NT $6.2 million Yuan.

Increasing energy in Taoyuan, Changhua, Yunlin and Kaohsiung County and city business district has experience in developing solar energy systems, including idle roofing and building farm shed. Increasing energy Chairman said commercial building roof area of over 300 square meters, or residential roofs in 20 pings, installed solar system and to receive feedback 4~6% gold.

Solar water devices, there is controversy

Taoyuan areas known for their farm pond, the Mayor has instructed the environmental protection agency assessment on the use of water from farm pond setting floating solar power equipment, in March this year is expected to see Taiwan’s first farm pond solar systems. Also plans to use solar water space development, and grandparents shop in Kaohsiung reservoir, Lake of lantan reservoir in Chiayi and Kaohsiung; but have been part of the plan was rejected.

Kaohsiung’s Chengching Lake are famous scenic spots, have felt worried about destruction of landscape, so local governments decide the suspension, first in Kenyan shops solar reservoir poems. Meanwhile, Chiayi lantan reservoirs had expected 2019 year power, but also because of concern about water quality and landscape change, was rejected by Parliament. However, the Taiwan water company, said solar panels paving area is only about 3% lantan water surface area, will continue to communicate.

Japan, China and the United Kingdom and other countries have set up solar power systems on the water experience, Japan will be completed this year on a scale up to 13.7MW of floating water plants, when completed will be the world’s largest water solar systems. Set up solar power system can effectively use water cooling features reduce the water Panel operating temperature, thereby increasing capacity coupled with the available surface space, while conserving water quality effect, so popular.
