The biggest utility failed to achieve the 2017 solar PV subsidies added capacity

Polaris solar PV net news: “If you want to use one word to describe the PV industry in 2016, which is ‘ escapades ‘,” February 16 “2016 review and prospect of 2017 situation of development of the photovoltaic industry seminar”, Deputy researcher of the national energy Administration’s new Energy Division Xing Yi Teng said.


The biggest utility failed to achieve the 2017 solar PV subsidies added capacity will be more than 20GW

In the year 2016, photovoltaic industry followed by experienced “630” Installing tide resulting surge capacity, “frontrunner” low price competition of the base file, the first photovoltaic poverty alleviation issued starting from the second half of constant twists and turns of price adjustment.

In such cases, the photovoltaic industry produced a report “report cards”. By the end of 2016, China PV power capacity 34.54GW, ground power station 30.3GW, distributed power station 4.24GW, a total installed capacity of 77.42GW, new and cumulative installed capacity is the world’s first, with a new machine for 4 consecutive years ranked first in the world.

China PV Industry Association Secretary-General Wang Bohua said that growth, digestion project is one of the important achievement last year in previous years. 2017 China PV market will maintain a good development trend, total demand this year is still large. National leaders will still be distributed forward technology base, poverty alleviation, project requirements, such as, in the General project (12.6GW), leads the technology base (5.5GW), PV poverty alleviation (4.81GW), add index (10GW), distributed PV and other factors, driven by growth will accelerate, installed more than 20GW expected this year. The domestic market showed a trend of tight after the first song, first three quarters tight, four-quarter more.

2017 of PV industry development trend is established in “Thirteen-Five” under the framework of the. If you say “Twelve-Five” ‘s main task is to expand the scale, that “Thirteen-Five” is not only the unilateral expansion of scale, but on developing low cost, reducing cost and increasing efficiency, give full play to the role of State subsidies.

Cut before 2016 China PV on-grid price in the world at a very high level, coupled with the first half of “630” Installing surge stimulus, rapid development of PV makes serious renewable energy subsidies more a deficit already stretched thin. According to statistics, 2015 energy gap reached 40 billion yuan of subsidies, 2016 shortfall rises to 60 billion yuan.

In addition, existing within the PV industry “resell flagging” (“flagging” generally refers to the relevant departments to carry out preliminary project approval) is the Department of energy issued a prohibition of the sale of project documents and related interests, but the effect is very limited. Xing Yiteng, “says (in effect) a lot of subsidies are speculative people, brokers and local calls for the investment in support industries, supporting industries there is duplicate of inefficient investment, so most of the subsidies did not play. ”

Last year through the “frontrunner” base project in the domestic photovoltaic industry kicked off the “bidding” brings a lot of unexpected results. First on the issue of subsidies, said Xing Yiteng, declared in the last year reached 5 million-kilowatt “leader” in the base, each project on average than local benchmark prices drop 2 cents, all measured down to save state subsidies of 1.5 billion yuan each year.

Secondly by way of project bidding, so that prices reflect true costs, no extra profit to resell, Xing Yiteng thinks this is to prevent “scalping flagging” the only way.

Xing Yiteng said 2017 PV focus can be summed up as “a priority, a comprehensive, two systems and two”.

This year we will continue to give priority to supporting distributed PV development, combined to change distributed close to elimination on direct transactions; the full implementation of the competitive allocation of items, large to enterprise challenges last year only in the “leader” base was introduced, but not mandatory, but encouraged.

According to the industry standard is ambiguous, inconsistent problems, to build industry-standard systems, and monitoring and evaluation system, standardize easier industry-standard, to abandon the light, dissolve, grid access, supporting investment in monitoring.

In addition, in 2017 will focus on “the leader” base, make adjustments to the index, base itself to competition, Sunshine resources, land tax, grid access, as well as indicators of local government services will be the main consideration. Poverty alleviation is an important object in the development of priority supporting village-level power stations.

According to Chinese Photovoltaic Industry Association statistics, last year the manufacturing end of the photovoltaic industry showing a scale continues to expand, costs continued to decline, and technology features.

According to China PV Industry Association statistics, 2016 in polysilicon aspects, China annual production about 194,000 tons, compared growth 17.6%, annual solar level polysilicon imports volume about 136,000 tons (containing silicon ingots), part enterprise cost has fell to 70 Yuan/kg following, new 5000 tons level electronic level polysilicon factory, high quality products has in semiconductor field bulk application; wafer aspects, annual production over 63GW, compared growth 31% above, Each chip costs fell to 1.4 Yuan, polycrystalline diamond wire cutting applications faster, increase single crystal material and speed also improved.

Battery tablets aspects, annual production over 49GW, compared growth 19.5% above, part Enterprise processing cost has fell to 0.5 Yuan/w following, PERC, and black silicon, technology achieved scale production, single more Crystal efficiency respectively reached 20.5% and 19%; component aspects, last year production over 53GW, compared growth 15.7% above, continuous 10 years global first, part Enterprise processing cost fell to 2.45 Yuan/w following, half tablets, and MBB, and stack w, technology constantly emerged, Increasing degree of automation components production.

Back in 2016 PV market development, market structure and structural change must have occurred. Market focus gradually from the Northwest to the Central and Eastern regions. 2016 new installed capacity in the Northwest 9.74GW, accounted for 28% of the 9 provinces over 1GW installed in the East.

Market structure away from the ground station to the distributed transfer. 2016 distributed PV new installed capacity of 4.24GW in China in 2015, representing a new 1.39GW up 200%. After August 2016, distributed grid per month is around 50% per cent. Among them, Zhejiang, Shandong, Jiangsu, Guangdong and other coastal identities released distributed home front, Ningxia, Shanxi and rely on additional larger scale a power station to help.

Multisectoral PV series full implementation of competition in the new deal proposed

Polaris solar PV net news: 16th from the development of PV industry in 2016 recalls Outlook seminar about the situation with 2017 2017 China’s PV market will be tight after the first song, new installed capacity 20-30GW is expected. National Energy Board, Ministry and other departments will introduce technical innovation, industrial systems and other aspects of the new deal, is one of the most critical will be the full implementation of competitive projects, giving priority to support distributed.

China PV industry association data show that in 2016, polysilicon production in our country about 194,000 tons, an increase of 17.6%, annual solar grade polysilicon about 136,000 tonnes were imported (including ingots); part of the cost has dropped to 70 Yuan/kg; new 5000-ton electronic grade polysilicon plants, high-quality products have been applied in the field of semiconductor bulk. Wafer, production in 2016 than 63GW, an increase of more than 11%, each processing costs to drop below 1.4. Photovoltaic capacity reached 34.54GW, for 4 consecutive years ranked first in the world, ground power station 30.3GW, distributed power plant 4.24GW.

The “PV market layout, double conversion took place. Market structure converted from gradually to the East and other regions in the Northwest: 2016 installed 9.74GW in Northwest China, accounted for 28% of the 9 provinces in Eastern new installed capacity in broken 1GW. Market structure from the ground station to tilt distributed: distributed PV new installed capacity up 200% from 2015, after August 2016, distributed grid per month is around 50% per cent. “Analysis of China PV Industry Association Secretary-General Wang Bohua said 2016 is the PV business in recent years one of the most profitable years.

China PV industry association forecast, 2017 global PV market still will keep growth momentum, which China market started will rendering first tight Hou pine situation, Qian three quarter tight, four quarter more pine, in general project (12.6GW), and lead technology base (5.5GW), and PV poverty (4.81GW), and added index (10GW above), and distributed PV, more factors drive Xia, added capacity about for 20-30GW. And hydropower planning and design of water conservancy Institute researcher Qin Xiao is expected in 2017, added size over the first half of 10GW.

In response, Deputy researcher Xing Yiteng of the National Energy Board’s new Energy Division noted that the scale indicator is not required special attention and sensitivity, “Thirteen-Five” 105 million kW of installed capacity in the planning target is not a binding target, and instead should be a lower limit. 2017 and the entire “Thirteen-Five” period PV the main task is to promote technological progress, reduce costs and expand diversified applications.

Under this approach, 2017 keyword is fully competitive and first distributed in photovoltaic industry.

According to reports, the 2016 bidding model of eight leaders base open tenders, each new benchmark projects than the local photovoltaic prices fell 2 cents, is expected to save subsidies of 1.5 billion yuan. As well as show the PV’s competitiveness, technological progress, put an end to forced selling and many other positive. “Competitive bidding is necessary. “Xing Yiteng, 2017 will be full implementation of competition in the allocation of items, building evaluation system of standards.

Ministry of industry and information technology, electronics and information Division Chief Wang Weiwei also revealed that the next step will carry out spot checks on photovoltaic manufacturers and see whether they meet the entry requirements. Meanwhile, intelligent manufacturing effort in the photovoltaic industry, through a number of projects to support technological research and development. In addition, to promote photovoltaic applications in the Park, and new industrialization demonstration base requires non-renewable energy consumption of water of not less than 1%.

Under such situation, Wang Bohua believes that price declines will be the main theme, recent large enterprises have been sold for 2.9 Yuan per watt. Costs will fall quickly, companies this year is expected to drop below $0.3/watt, key + black diamond wire cutting silicon wafers silicon etching can scale application.

Another important guide was the priority of the policy of supporting the development of distributed especially roof distributed. Xing Yiteng said only preliminary consideration construction land in the distributed project roof is truly distributed, also distributed voltage levels, regulate the volume level on the roof, electricity market reform drive roof distributed transactions. In addition, the leader support base, develop photovoltaic projects, priority support to 300KW of village-level power stations.

This idea is also reflected in the financial policy. Review Bureau Director Liu Hongbo introduced from China Development Bank, the Bank 2017 financial support for the key areas of distributed PV and “PV +”, leader in PV demonstration base and PV poverty alleviation, photovoltaic power going out, the Department of energy micro-grid, with complementary.

2016 top global shipments of photovoltaic module manufacturer ranking

Polaris solar PV net news: research and consulting firm GlobalData’s latest report shows that in just the past 2016, jinko to 6.6~6.7GW PV module shipments exceed Trina become TOP.1. Trina, followed by shipments to 6.3~6.55GW last year.

GlobalData estimated 2016 global PV market demand worth about $39.7 billion, jinko is its broad market and a diverse customer base, and by making use of its good brand awareness and sales networks, produce beautiful results.

Following in third place was Canadian solar, 2016 shipments 5.073~5.173GW; Finally, JA Solar 4.9~5GW; hanwha fifth shipment 4.8~5GW; integration of gchl VI, 4.6~5GW;First Solar 2.8~2.9GW shipments came in seventh place. In 2016, however, was a disappointing year for Yu Yingli, falling further in the table.

“Yingli 2016 PV module shipments of about 2.1~2.2GW, compared with their peers apparently did not bring markets time to seize the growing popularity of solar dividends” GlobalData investigator said, “the company’s liquidity and debt issues, Yingli’s global ranking dropped from seventh place to eighth. From the second quarter to the third quarter of 2016, and its net income continued to decline, mainly due to the decrease in domestic demand in the third quarter, falling PV module shipments and average selling price falling rapidly. ”

2017 CPPCC will put the motion of the photovoltaic industry

Polaris solar PV net news: on February 10, the 12th, Jiangsu Province people’s Congress plenary session. At this point, the 29 provinces have completed the annual two sessions. With two sessions ended, two sessions will be held, although in two sessions, the representative of the photovoltaic industry motion which we are currently unknown, but through the past two photovoltaic industry proposals and events of the past year, you can try to speculate some possible elements of proposals.

Review 16 CPPCC PV manufacturers representative

2016 two sessions for the PV industry, PV are proposals such as poverty alleviation, including in proposals on behalf of the party and Government officials, industry experts, business leaders, and so on. Small series to take you through the following table briefly reviews the last PV enterprises representative of relevant proposals.


2017 CPPCC will put the motion of the photovoltaic industry?

In last year’s solar products on behalf of the sponsors, and PV more poverty-related and technological innovation, which suggests that PV enterprises hope to break through technical means can, contribute to a photovoltaic power and poverty reduction. A year later, PV field, some of the problem is still not resolved, as some PV projects stalled, abandoned light problem; some new phenomena began to occur, how to tap the potential energy storage application market, how to promote PV better agricultural development. These problems, if not resolved, will be severely circumscribed by the development of PV industry and, therefore, PV billion forecast, these four points in this year’s two sessions may be involved in the proposal.

Forecast 17 CPPCC proposals focusing on

1. potential energy storage application market

Recalled 2016 years, from national macro policy level Shang see, storage can is to increasingly high of frequency into to national energy and power industry development planning in the, especially has released of power, and can renewable energy and energy development “Thirteen-Five” planning, are will promoted storage can technology model application as “Thirteen-Five” of main task, clear proposed to active advance big capacity and distributed storage can technology of model application and promotion.

With the relevant support policy in the field of publishing, storage more broad application opportunities. Renewable energy close to dissolve on the one hand, power-assisted services, new energy micro-grid energy storage field of direct application of these, showing more energy storage projects access. Other hand, competitive, incremental electricity sales distribution network, interconnected areas such as how to use energy to achieve value-added services how to tap the potential of the energy storage market, also caused companies more and more attention and thought. Insiders said energy is “new energy development bottleneck, will also be the lifeblood of distributed PV photovoltaic”. Therefore, very likely this year’s two sessions, and “mining potential energy storage application market,” relating to the proposal.

2. promoting photovoltaic agricultural development

2016 National Energy Board releases on accelerating construction of energy development in the poor areas to promote the implementation of poverty alleviation crucial opinion, mainstream agricultural photovoltaic PV queue for poverty alleviation, since light around complementary project sprung. PV benefits of agricultural development, Shi Dinghuan, President of China renewable energy society believes that “from a long-term perspective, development of photovoltaic agriculture agriculture is of great significance for China, in the short run, PV agriculture to some extent are effective measures to resolve the current PV industry difficulties. ”

Although complementary to agriculture, the PV industry advantage, but process is not an easy project, especially the PV of the many interests involved in agriculture. In the development of agriculture when PV, should not only take into account the nature of land use need to protect farmers ‘ interests cannot be changed, and also has to land at risk and many other difficulties, so want to complementary projects have a better development, crack still needs to rely on the collective wisdom of these difficulties.

3. ensure that the photovoltaic projects implemented

PV poor plight this country to help the poor cope with life launched an important initiative, if you can develop as expected, will be very optimistic about the future. However, 16 CCTV exposure at the end of a “PV poverty alleviation in Ningxia chaos” news industry caused a sensation, and the press that was supposed to begin in 15 to 16 also stagnated at the end of the pilot project. Similarly, in January 17, tianzhen County, Datong city in Shanxi province has spent 450,000 yuan of village PV power station project on poverty reduction claims has been completed but is still a barren wasteland, many poor subsidize the slaughter of more than 2 million Yuan to build the production line is idle.

This exposes large loopholes in the supervision of local funds, poverty relief funds like the interests of individual groups in the eyes of the “flesh”. The other hand, revealed more than one city in North China County Government access station index companies following: 10MW photovoltaic plant index 1.0012 billion yuan in poverty relief funds or margin payments, naked power index in Exchange for revenue, PV used to start local poverty alleviation projects. Such poorly regulated exchange money, using indicators such as poverty alleviation projects cannot be carried out are not infrequent, so this year’s two sessions may have on “how to make sure that the PV to implement poverty alleviation project” proposals.

4. “abandoned” problem

As at present, the fastest growing, sought-after source of clean energy, photovoltaic, China is gaining more and more policy support and favor capital, but in popularity on the road but always face a round stumbling blocks in the past, the “abandoned.” Official data show that in 2016, the first half of the abandoned a very serious problem in Northwest China, abandon the photovoltaic capacity of 3.28 billion kWh, abandon rates 19.7%. State grid Corporation, to dissolve enough power output capability is not enough, was abandoned in the five provinces of Northwest main power is an issue.

In addition to traditional reasons such as lack of absorptive and delivery capacity, high power also makes disposable light problems intensified. The end of 2016, entered a period of high power PV power station, according to PV focus area minimum guarantee acquisition of annual utilization hours of approved list, class ⅰ, ⅱ in China guaranteeing the purchasing of resources utilization hours of 1300-1500. Ningxia Hui autonomous region as an example, over 1500 hour limit, so both light resource advantage and in the use of efficient products for PV investment income would have no meaning, as a result of limited capacity to send out, even if the power is of no avail. Therefore exacerbates the high proportion of power from another perspective “abandoning” the dilemma “. To better solve “abandoned” problem, and there are many voices of the industry, presumably the two sessions will have a representative voice.

Summary: these four points, we chose PV development faces many problems in the part of how PV proposal which appears in the current session of the CPPCC, PV billion and common concerns you!

Department of energy solar thermal demonstration project programme has clearly

Polaris solar PV net news: on February 13, the National Energy Board to Qinghai province, Gansu province, Hebei province, Inner Mongolia autonomous region, Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous region development and Reform Commission (Department of energy) and hydropower planning and Design Institute of water resources issued the notice submitted to the construction of solar thermal power generation demonstration projects (hereinafter referred to as notice) and provincial (district) were collected by local solar thermal demonstration project progress.

Notification requirements by February 15 will follow notice issued by the progress in the construction of solar thermal power generation demonstration projects after completion of form submitted to the National Energy Board new energy and renewable energy Division and the water board General Hospital, at the end of each quarter thereafter submitted to the construction progress of the project.

Despite reported progress in the construction of demonstration projects for requirements, but caused extensive discussion of the industry is that the notification requirement in article.

Has clear programme of pilot projects cannot be allowed to change

Notice a clear, if the demonstration projects of enterprises, technical routes and sources and systems integration enterprise, and other important content and the National Energy Board issued a notice (of a country new to 2016 “223”) is definitely different (see table) to be highlighted in the report. Participating in the demonstration project is clear when we compare the competitive enterprises and key technology of equipment Integrator partnership cannot be allowed to change.

Specification for the notification shall be the National Energy Board for demonstration projects, ensuring the achievement of demonstration projects and issued regulatory guidance documents. September 2015 National Energy Board issued the notice on the Organization construction of solar thermal power generation demonstration project (national new energy (2015), No. 355) a clear demonstration objectives for this round of demonstration projects, formation of domestic solar thermal equipment manufacturing industry chain. Meanwhile, cultivating some system integrators with comprehensive construction capability in order to meet the need of subsequent development on solar thermal power.

According to reporters from the water board Institute informed, this provision was made, one important objective is to pilot project “fostering several system integrators with comprehensive construction capability,” corresponds to the goal of building.

Part of the implementation of the demonstration projects, or contrary to the spirit of the circular

In national energy Council September 30, 2015 released model project construction notification Hou, November 10, the model project declared party that concentrated completed has declared material of submitted, in so short of time within, except owned technology project as in the control delingha 50MW power station and first energy-saving Dunhuang 100MW melt salt Tower power station zhiwai, simple to power station investment for purpose of model project as guohua power Yumen 100MW melt salt Tower project, and in the energy-saving Gansu wuwei Gulang 50MW slot type project, and Northwest China investigation and Design Institute Republican 50MW molten salt solar thermal power Tower project (mainly of State-owned enterprises for investment projects) were chose flight energy, Dragon solar, in control of solar energy as a source of technology and systems integration business.

But in the practical execution since September 2016 model project list issued, started gradually advance the demonstration projects on track, finalists of the demonstration project owners began to review its project development programme a more pragmatic, part demonstration project nominated for even the feasibility study of the project was reworked and revised, to reassess and determine its sources of technology and systems integration partner. More for part of the project when the project is declared on the project’s feasibility study on deep enough, so after further assessments, for the project to have better implementation, achieve higher investment yields and changes the heat long, or even change technology.

So, part demonstration project participants desire by changing technology, change key technology equipment integration partners to further ensure the success of projects construction, higher investment profit of practices and this notice must not be “changing” contrary to this provision.

Changed and unchanged: the Government project of choice

Analysis think, from Government angle view, if the model project party unauthorized change project investment enterprise, and technology route, and technology source and system integrated enterprise, is and had selection model project of guidelines phase against, he Shi, 109 a declared model project participation first model project compete for, project of technology route, and technology source and system integrated enterprise, are for project review of important reference, this based above determine has 20 a model project list, if at change, is he Shi of review meaning is? Demonstration project in the review of the project’s technology and technology considering the sources and integrating enterprise, in different technology, different sources of technology and system integration level for this model, in order to achieve the above demonstration objectives, such as further changes may be contrary to the achievement of this objective.

In addition, some unsuccessful demonstration projects also had reservations about this. Stakeholders expressed, “if anything can be changed, that does not mean that put in a new project? Why did for project appraisal? ”

From the perspective of some demonstration projects, proceeding from reality, for solar-thermal power generation projects are extremely complex, technical solutions identified, partners in identifying possible non-demonstration project within a month can be completely determined the optimal choice, in order to ensure that demonstration projects, also has become truth.

In ensuring that the construction of the demonstration project is successful on this point, the Government and the project owner’s objectives are consistent, but it is clear that Government is on a “big dish” point of consideration, they wish to each demonstration project is successful and that demonstration projects under the integrated and in their success. If all the Tower power station were changed to Tower of molten salt technology, you probably will not considered in the model project list issued for so many items, if the efforts of technical sources and systems integration businesses change and focus into the hands of one or two companies, is not conducive to achieve the goal of cultivating a number of systems integrators.

Notification issue affect the geometry? Further observations

This notice on February 13 by the National Energy Board is assigned to model projects province (district), energy systems, but as of press time noon February 14, part demonstration project has not received this notification.

Reporters inform consult some of the demonstration projects of different owners have different comments on this notice, generally fall into three categories, 1, support, believes the notice will regulate the order of construction of demonstration projects; 2, oppose, think that the Government should not interfere with the project implementation, the owner is responsible for investment, not Government; 3, does not matter.

This notice issued for changes in technology, technology that was changed from demonstration projects and system integration enterprise is likely to have an immediate impact, it will have to note changes to the National Energy Board. But the notice does not specify, if you insist on change, what will happen? Unable to enjoy may dismiss your model number model price? Government may have not reached a consensus on this issue. After the description changes, Government will make any feedback? Perhaps different demonstration projects will have different results.

From technical sources and systems integration enterprise point of view, this notice issued to control solar, the first energy saving, solar or Dragon will produce some good, 20 demonstration projects, these three companies are the three demonstration projects technical sources and systems integration.

In addition, from the perspective of investment enterprises of the project requirements, this notification or reselling flagging avoid demonstrating items happen.

20 demonstration projects, State-owned enterprise for investment development projects amounted to 9, to private enterprises to invest in the development of the project a total of 11, State-owned enterprise development project’s goal is to invest power plants, power stations and electricity sales profits, and private enterprise development project’s goal is to foster their own systems integration capabilities.

This notice issued is expected to private enterprises and State-owned enterprise-led project will have a certain impact, but have significantly different in terms of the effect. Private enterprises are short of money, the project most enterprise level are more or less subject to change, and most of the State-owned enterprises only pure investors, technology source and system integration enterprise level will determine best partners through public bidding.

In fact, Government power demonstration projects had been provided. Issued under the National Energy Board in October 2016 national power demonstration project management procedures clear, demonstration programme project is not implemented or violations in the construction process, should be disqualified from demonstration projects and make an announcement. In May 2012, issued by the National Energy Board the national energy management of major science and technology demonstration project also points out that, demonstration projects in the construction process has any of the following circumstances, cancelled their demonstration project eligibility shall be published and incorporated into the model engineering applicant files. A model programme, and is not implemented; second, in violation of the construction process.

But for solar-thermal power generation demonstration project should strictly follow the requirements, notice of this announcement does not specify, it also is not clear if not implemented strictly according to the demonstration project programme, what are the consequences.

At present, the first 20 demonstration projects is accelerating, in April of this year is expected to usher in a centralized building boom. This notice issued on the demonstration project construction will affect, remains to be seen.

Black routes clear poly silicon technology challenges ordinary Crystal market

Polaris solar PV net news: since PERC technologies become more available, single crystal polycrystalline solar products continue to threaten the city. Polycrystalline silicon manufacturers thus began to focus on black technology, trying to improve diamond wire cutting through black silicon wafer cell conversion efficiency can be easily reduced problems for large capacity of polycrystalline looking for new market opportunities.

Compared with the traditional sand cut polycrystalline, diamond wire cutting faster, cut wafer quality more stable, each wafer can reduce the cost 6~10 cents. But cut polycrystalline diamond line surface is too smooth, make solar easy reflection that cannot be absorbed by the battery, it will reduce the efficiency. Must be dealt with for surface texturing, one technology is called black silicon with high visibility.

Two types, the three processes

Black Silicon is returned along with the diamond wire cutting wafer of existing technology. In 2016, many manufacturers have already started research on black silicon, BYD, a Chinese solar, ja, Crystal, and other first-tier companies, Kyocera and some plants are included.

Black Silicon is mainly divided into dry and wet method two, with many categories. At present, the main black market silicon technologies have dry, wet, three categories of additives; additive is a kind of wet, but there is no standard of silver nitrate solution used wet. Three main differences are as follows:


Black routes clear poly silicon technology challenges ordinary Crystal market share

Consideration to the current technological development and equipment costs, and so on, EnergyTrend analysts think 2017 black silicon technology has gradually additive technology convergence and dry still has room to continue development. Contrast, wet method of silver nitrate solution used by environmental concerns, is relatively unfavourable characteristics. In addition, wet on the efficiency than dry, than in terms of reducing additives, which still need to examine how.

Main competitors for single crystal

Black Silicon polycrystalline cells stacked PERC technology about conversion efficiency to 19~20%; and the cost reduced with diamond wire cutting, price/performance was a direct challenge to General status of single crystals. Plus Crystal limited wafer capacity than adequate, it is difficult to flip the market share of polycrystalline, is also open for black polycrystalline silicon of price/performance space in the market.

While single PERC will be in 2017, as technologies mature and move into mainstream markets for efficient products and that many firms actively expanding production, market demand is also rising in the know.

EnergyTrend Analyst estimates, black silicon technology in 2017 will be clear in the first half, and in 2017, entered mass production in the second half. Market reaction to black Silicon polycrystalline cells, will be around for future development of black Silicon.

A variety of products and higher raw material prices and solar thermal demonstration

Arctic star solar PV network news: according to reporter multi understand, near paragraph time yilai, except melt salt products outside (see this network previously reported: melt salt price rose near 30% to model project procurement cost big increased), construction light hot power station by needed of steel, and super white glass, and thermal conductivity oil, variety products and raw materials of market are appeared has different range of rose, is expected to will light hot model project of construction cost brings larger pressure.

Solar thermal power plant, the main raw material of steel, particularly in part of the island, collector bracket manufacturing need to consume large quantities of steel. As far as the relevant parties in 2016, domestic steel prices rose sharply, from 2017 to date, frame with steel (steel S235) market prices have risen more than 350 Yuan, or more than 10%. Tube type 321 steels used in the manufacture of much higher, around 20%.

It is reported that the primary reason for the rise in steel prices is caused by rising raw material prices, result in increased production costs. According to commodities information service information monitoring data show 2016 domestic Coke price rose from 600 Yuan/ton up to 2120 Yuan/ton, rising by more than 200%, port for iron ore price hikes of about 98%.

Secondly, the supply side reforms, productivity and environmental factors to boost steel prices. Domestic product in 2016 exceeded the country’s 45 million tons to capacity task, the Government launched an inspection of medium frequency induction furnace steel-making in the second half, to a large extent affected the supply of steel market is expected, at the crucial stage of steel prices formed an obvious support.

In addition, 2016 currency continued to lose ground on the cost of commodities become more obvious support. Financial properties shows domestic steel products, steel rose is one of the factors that affect the spot market is very important.

Analysis predicts that in 2017 the domestic steel price steel price still has a better upside based on prices for the year showed a trend of elevation at the bottom. But the China iron and steel Association has said in a report, in 2017, China’s steel demand is expected to remain stable, but because of the more complex market environment at home and abroad, the steel industry is still in a turnaround phase of transformation, the overall market will not happens big changes, steel prices to surge.

Meanwhile, the island and the other core devices mirror glass sheet prices have also increased. Asahi Glass (Dalian), Yang Jihong, Deputy General Manager, said, “due to higher raw materials cost of soda ash and oil, prices of raw glass about 20%. Of course, with different production and processing technology of enterprise, the degree of fluctuations in commodity prices or big or small differences exist. ”

As key components of the mirrors cost, original mirrors the total cost of production of about 1/4~1/3.

Same product prices due to rising raw material costs the trough solar thermal power system heat transfer medium oil. It is learnt that the price of the product was about 20% years ago, years later, also have the possibility of further gains.

A variety of rising raw material prices at the same time, is to a large extent, increased the plant’s upfront investment costs, thereby affecting the project rate of return.

“For companies that have bid but has not been stocked, this will greatly lower their profit margins; items may be found not yet begin the procurement process, the actual procurement spending will likely far beyond the project investment budget. For purchase costs specific to each project what impact also depends on the specific circumstances of specific projects. Nevertheless, rising purchasing costs on construction of demonstration projects is detrimental. “People in the industry said.

Saudi Arabia will launch solar thermal project to further optimize energy

Polaris solar PV net news: recently, Saudi Arabia’s Energy Minister KhalidAlFalih announced that Saudi Arabia will launch in the next few weeks the new renewable energy tenders. According to reports, the tender is divided into three phases, the first phase includes installed capacity respectively, 300MW, 400MW of solar and wind power projects, phase II and phase III, including solar-thermal power generation and garbage power generation projects. Among them, solar-thermal power project will build, own and transfer (BOT) model for development.

It is reported that the Saudi’s growing demand for electricity and fresh water demand for storage advantages of solar-thermal power generation provides an important opportunity for development, it can complement and photovoltaic power generation, promote Saudi of renewable energy development.

According to the King Abdullah University of science and technology-related figures, in order to meet domestic energy needs, the country consumed every day crude oil output of the country 25% that day (around 2.8 million barrels a day).

At present, the Government of Saudi Arabia is trying to reduce its reliance on fossil fuels, and is committed to diversification of the economic and social development in 2030. Specific plans include, by 2020, renewable energy installed capacity 3.5GW goal by 2023, 9.5GW by 2030 total $50 billion Fund for investment in solar power and wind power projects.

According to King Abdullah, Atomic and renewable energy Department data shows, Saudi Hagl, Umluj, Duba, AlWajh and Timaa, the Northwest Territories, DNI index amounted to approximately 1805kWh/m2/yr, while in the Tabuk region, around DNI index as high as 2047kWh/m2/yr.

“Can be understood to be, preferred layout of photovoltaic and wind turbine construction speed may be relatively quickly, to meet peak demand for electricity, but I would like to see solar-thermal power generation play their stored energy advantages, and further optimize the energy structure. “Saudi ACWAPower CEO PaddyPadmanathan said.

Solar thermal power generation or to meet the growing demand for electricity

According to the Saudi electricity company (SEC) according to the data provided, the country due to heavy use of air conditioning in summer electricity demand growth, annual growth rate of 7%~9%.

In August 2015, the peak load of the power companies hit a record high, up to 62.3GW, about 10.2% peak of the year than in the past.

Saudi power relies heavily on fossil fuels, according to the Saudi electricity and cogeneration regulatory authority (ECRA) data show 2014 Saudi electricity production accounted for: crude oil 44%, 11% diesel, heavy fuel oil 13% and gas 32%.

Meanwhile, falling PV costs to expand the photovoltaic and solar thermal power generation cost gap between, prompting solar thermal project developers focus more on solar thermal power generation energy advantage. Although PV can help meet the peak demand of the day, but solar-thermal power plants can achieve a 24-hour electricity.

GE renewable energy General Manager regenerative steam power plant StevenJ.Moss, hybrid power project of PV installed capacity increased, flexible led to power generation to meet the night electricity demand and the increased demand for long storage. At present, many solar photovoltaic and solar thermal power tender, tends to be combined, or sought to expand storage.

For example, Moroccan NoorMidelt1 solar hybrid power project is a collection of solar-thermal power and photovoltaic technologies as one of the hybrid power station, total installed capacity up to 400MW; in addition, Dubai is also planning MohammedbinRashidAlMaktoum solar Park, for now, PV installed capacity up to 1GW, phase I installed capacity of 200MW solar thermal project-related work has started.

According to StevenJ.Moss introduced, in areas with abundant solar energy resources, realization of photovoltaic and solar thermal well to complement each other. They can also carry out construction, respectively, an independent bid, tender addition to the pursuit of the lowest cost per kilowatt, also needs to have the appropriate regulatory body to ensure that the installed capacity of the balance.

Solar thermal power generation cost is the key

It is learned that solar thermal power generation project developers have deployment of building integrated solar combined cycle power plant in Saudi Arabia (ISCC), while SEC was working to make Duba1 and WaadAlShamal installation costs of solar thermal power stations at a relatively low level (less than $1.6/MW). Currently, GE supply steam turbines for the Duba1 project has arrived at the scene, and the WaadAlShamal project is in the midst of intense construction.

It is understood that the SEC for the ISCC project provides some financial support, but need high current power station construction costs are not fully in place. In addition, due to fierce competition, many solar-thermal power plant developers tried to improve plant performance and improve the supply chain to reduce further the cost of investment.

In May 2016, on the MENASol2016 Forum, held in Dubai, Saudi Aramco (SaudiAramco) renewable energy Chief TimPolega said they expect over the next 10 years, a 6 hour storage system of solar-thermal power plant construction costs fell sharply from 2016 to $5.32/W (about 36.6 Yuan/W) by 2021, will fall to $4.28/W (about 29.4/W) By 2026, is expected to fall to $3.80/W (about 26.1 Yuan/W).

However, Polega also said future use battery energy storage photovoltaic power generation costs will fall further, or make the storage advantages of solar-thermal power generation is no longer so obvious.

In fact, the wider layout is the key to reducing costs of solar thermal power generation market, and solar-thermal power generation industry in China is now in a critical period of development, the market prospects. And China plan to be completed by the end of 2018, the first batch of 20 solar thermal demonstration project of construction, total installed capacity up to 1.4GW.

“I think China will be a game-changer and optical-thermal power generation costs have a significant impact. “Padmanathan said.

Last month, the Dubai electricity and water authority (DEWA) has launched its first 200MW solar-thermal project (first phase of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum solar Park project) tender. In 2016, the DEWA has set global minimum price of PV, and first solar-thermal power plants offer a globally competitive price-around $80/MWh (about 0.55 Yuan per kWh).

The perfect combination of solar thermal power generation and sea water desalination

In addition to power generation, desalination is also Saudi Arabia’s major potential market development of solar-thermal power generation technology.

It is understood that the Saudi desalination Corporation (SWCC) has 29 desalination plants, seawater desalination plant for the production of desalinated water desalination capacity the country around 62%, but these projects total power electrical equipment up to 7.3GW.

SWCC data shows from 2007 to 2015, demand for fresh water in Saudi Arabia grew at an annual rate of 5.5%.

“Solar thermal power generation technique is very suitable for seawater desalination in Saudi Arabia. Tabuk (located in Northwest Saudi Arabia) in some areas, such as, solar desalination of sea water up to 75% per cent. “Taqnia energy, senior business development manager WailBamhair said.

Padmanathan said: “We firmly believe that solar thermal power generation technology combined with conventional fossil fuels in Saudi Arabia is very fit and very necessary, which can give full play to its advantage for energy storage, and to meet the Saudi demand for electricity at night, and can also provide heat for desalination systems. ”

Western media the EU will gradually eliminate tariffs on imported anti dumping

Polaris solar PV net news: Western media said, February 8 the European Commission proposal to extend the anti-dumping duties against Chinese solar panels for 18 months, instead of the original 24 months, while phasing out the tariffs starting from 2013. Are phased out, mainly taking into account depends on the material’s European businesses expressed concern.

According to EfE reported on February 8, said Frands-dimomansi, Vice-President of the European Commission, on the one hand the EU has the right to protect the local industry from unfair competition against, while also taking into account, dependent on these imports to manufacture the final product, and provide thousands of jobs for European enterprises.

Dimomansi also said that solar power will no doubt to the achievement of the EU’s environmental protection and climate change goals plays a crucial role. Therefore the European Union proposes to extend the time limit of 18 months imposed anti-dumping duties, and the phasing out of the tariff.

Dimomansi said, on the premise of taking into account the views of Member States of the European Union, after careful deliberation before putting forward the proposal, and will submit the proposal to the Member States of the European Union.

Beginning in 2013 after the anti-dumping tax on Chinese solar panels, in December 2015, the EU decided to extend the period of antidumping duties.

Reported that, upon the receipt of complaints of European companies, according to the survey of the European Union, Chinese companies export price significantly lower than the normal market price of solar panels, and to obtain a subsidy. The EU believes that this caused serious damage to European products.

European Commission through the PV 18 month extension of anti dumping to China

Polaris solar PV net news: first Vice President of the European Commission dimomansi 8th, the day the European Commission adopted a proposal for EU anti-dumping measures against China PV product proposed to be extended by 18 months, and phase-out of such measures in the future.

Dimomansi said at a news conference, solar energy for essential environmental and climate goals of the European Union, taking into account the views of Member States and the interests of different groups within the European Union, the European Commission proposed to extend term of anti-dumping measures.

Dimomansi also said the phase-out of anti-dumping measures are intended to ensure that the EU PV product manufacturers have time to adapt to the new situation, elimination, needs to be further discussion with Member States.

EU Member States are required for the proposal to the vote.

December 2013, the Commission of the European Union on imports of Chinese products is imposed by the Supreme 64.9% of the anti-dumping duties and countervailing duties of up to 11.5%, for a period of two years, and was extended by the end of 2015.

In January of this year, the European Commission will propose “double reverse” measures to extend for 24 months. Members voted to continue to levy countervailing duties, but 18 members voted against the anti-dumping measures will be extended to 24 months.

PV poverty s high altitude variations

Polaris solar PV net news: a Northwest Plateau of photovoltaic power stations for poverty alleviation situation shows that the policies aimed at benefiting 2 million poor families, faced a number of challenges in the actual operation.


PV poverty's high altitude variations

Average more than 3000 meters above sea level in Qinghai is a Highland provinces in Northwestern China, has an area of nearly three large, population of less than Britain’s one-tenth. With a total investment of around 30 billion scale photovoltaic projects for poverty alleviation in China, vast plateau meadows, in addition to the herdsmen’s tents, are seeing their big shiny photovoltaic panels.

In GUINAN County, wooden beach 10 megawatts of photovoltaic power plant construction projects for poverty alleviation, project has come to an end. Is work of master Zhu said: “lightning protection system, confirm the security check in the morning, there should not be many days to the Internet generation. ”

However China dialogue November survey found that combination of photovoltaic power generation and poverty alleviation, also faces a lot of uncertainty at the practical level.

“Flexible interpretation” of central policy

April 2015 in 471 counties gradually spread out of the country “PV poverty alleviation” projects, the principle is very simple: Government funding to help 2 million poor families to build distributed photovoltaic devices, issued except for personal use, can also be sold to the grid, to achieve increased income.

But Beijing’s policy came to more than 1300 square kilometers, Qinghai, it becomes less easy.

As early as two months before the country’s policy, decided in the 8 counties of the province, Qinghai 30 poor villages develop photovoltaic pilot project for poverty alleviation. Qinghai do have favorable conditions for the development of photovoltaic. On one hand, relatively thin atmosphere on the plateau and high daylight transmittance, combined with the arid climate, rainfall, solar energy resources are very abundant. Meanwhile, Qinghai has three large, a large number of desertified land suitable for laying of photovoltaic panels. Reuse of abandoned pastures to develop clean energy, it sounds too.

Qinghai province in 2015 according to the photovoltaic pilot project for poverty alleviation programme, the province plans to use 150 MW photovoltaic project supporting poor 8333 for poverty alleviation. Generation of photovoltaic power plant proceeds deducted is not exempt from tax, paid to the poor.

Follow the plan on paper, GUINAN County – one of the Lonely Planet travel guide as “transportation”, “rarely welcome visitors”, the vast majority of the population for Tibetan counties, was selected as the wooden beach 10 megawatts of photovoltaic power station project partners for poverty alleviation. According to the plan, after the project is completed, 556 households, poor households can enjoy the PV power plant proceeds for poverty alleviation, per household income-generating 4000 Yuan per year.

But China dialogue found that the policies were another power plant “reading”. Power plant employee master Chu told reporters that the plant directly to policy 4000 Yuan per household per year from electricity sales income to the families, the return of all remaining vested in the power plant.

“4000 Yuan subsidy per household had once issued to herdsmen”, Zhu said, “is out of the money. ”

However, the reporter visited local herdsmen said, and heard it from Enterprise subsidies. In fact, more than one herdsman told reporters that they thought was this power station for “West to East” was built. To Helping the Needy, the objectives of the project are understood by local herdsmen to ease the pressures of electricity economically developed areas in the East.

Participating companies at risk

However, enterprises can benefit from this model is equally doubtful. ATD 4000 Yuan subsidy per year per household, this means that the plant annually needs to be fixed to 556 families involved in poverty alleviation projects totaling up to 2.22 million poor benefit, PV power station project construction, maintenance of personnel services and the later, baffling expenditures, compared to power this source of income.

Return is not necessarily guaranteed. As with commercial PV, PV project price is also not enough to cover the high expenses depend on national and local renewable energy subsidies in order to turn a profit. However, renewable energy subsidies granted time to at present, PV industry has become the norm, two or three years in arrears fairly normal.

In addition, the industry reduced the benchmark price of new energy is an inevitable trend. In November 2016, State grid electric river ice, Deputy General Manager of the company said that by 2024, China or cancel new energy new power subsidies.

All enterprises involved in the PV area of poverty reduction to revenue pressures caused by these two issues. Chinese solar PV projects, Wang Fei, head of the group told reporters that the enterprise is not solely for the public interest organizations, logic was simple, first of all to profit.

Obtained from the poverty alleviation programme of local Government much practical benefit, equally bad to say. Yi West Village has been built in PV power plant will not significantly drive the local economy, because solar power as a clean energy project also enjoy the local income tax “three against three reductions” (three years exemption and three-year reduction) offers 10-megawatt photovoltaic power plant covers an area of more than 380 acres, taking up over a period of 25 years, but will not generate sufficient tax revenue to local governments.

In addition, the construction of power station is almost entirely foreign temporary workers, small-scale plant conservation after the grid only takes less than 10 employees, cannot stimulate local employment.

Crowded grid

More serious is that wooden beach PV may not even have the opportunity to face these problems. Has the basic completion of the power station, the planned September 30, 2016 put into operation generating, however, found in November, visits China dialogue, the grid-connected power station had not been achieved.

In fact, the weak market in recent years to dissolve, new energy up wind, abandon light phenomenon was repeated by the media. Circular economy of China renewable energy industries Association policy advisory director Peng Peng said, “now leave power of wind, abandoned the high proportion of … … Have to admit now that the electricity market at the stage of an oversupply of electricity market have decreased levels of various forms of energy to dissolve. “

According to the current power supply and demand situation and trend, national grid electricity trading center in the Northwest is expected in 2017 situation of oversupply of electricity will continue in the Northwest end of 2017, the total generating capacity of Northwest power grid, renewable energy generation capacity, new energy capacity will exceed the maximum load, when surplus electricity is about 150 billion-kilowatt for the year, nearly half of Britain a year in electricity.

Experts say large-scale photovoltaic projects, or even worsen the already serious problem of peak load, resulting in abandoned.

Qinghai has started to study the issue of the solution. November 2016, the national grid electric company, Qinghai province, China electric power Research Institute and other research institutes in Beijing, signed an agreement, agreement of cooperation to overcome PV absorptive, delivery, peak and other challenges.

Poverty myths

PV development in poor counties faced with knowledge and information gaps. Poor areas are often located in remote, education level, outside the generally less accepting of new technology city residents, how to make solar power really understood, accepted by locals, and eventually used effectively in GUINAN County of the Tibetan population is over 90% are also a problem.

Of grassland and depend on each other, the herders of sheep and yak as a main source of income, for the perception of the environment is sensitive. Norbu’s teenage daughter Zhuo Ma saying, “don’t know behind the electric battery will destroy our pastures.” Solar panels is generally 10 cell 2 will need to be replaced.

Emergence was born in concentration photovoltaic panels on the Meadow, herders in addition to worry that they will occupy the land can be used for grazing, curious about this great big shining equipment will also increase local temperatures.

Tibetan guide said with a smile, the villagers ‘ concerns may be no scientific evidence, nomads but no one to explain in what way these panels in power generation, electricity generated to be used where, and what are the potential environmental effects of the project.

As the Yangtze River, Yellow River and Lancang River source in Qinghai province, a fragile ecological environment and ecological restoration in the central to the provincial government’s policy had been emphasized. “Like eye protection, protection of the ecological environment”, “treated like life environment” and “guanghui is gold and silver” propaganda signs along the Highway can be seen everywhere. But a combination of clean energy and poverty alleviation, seemed most friendly harmless policy, have not been helped to fully understand, say that it is a pity.

GUINAN PV poverty story has only just begun, and involved in PV from the same message coming from the poor Eastern Province of Anhui, has adopted this policy in different regions encounter challenges during the landing. In mountain area in Anhui Province, for example, some too old and poor housing conditions is simply not equipped to install photovoltaic panels, and the absorptive capacity of local power network of distributed PV is a cause for concern.

Too many stakeholders involved, greatly influenced by energy markets and energy policy solar poverty alleviation, has just begun, its complexity have been quick to appear. However, Global Institute for energy and the environment and climate change project manager Yu Qingchan tell China dialogue, for its environmental and social benefits and win-win potential, such projects should also receive more attention.
