Yueqing city, in late 2016 financial subsidy for special funds to be distributed photovoltaic power generation project fact sheet

Liu hanyuan members of the two sessions proposal heavy impact of direct subsidies

Polaris solar PV net news: (reporter Chen Yanqing) in 2013, the State Council issued the opinions on promoting the healthy development of the photovoltaic industry since the benefits from national policy support and favorable environment for development, China’s PV industry expanded rapidly. Nearly 4 years, PV-an average annual growth rate of more than 60%. According to Department of energy statistics, by the end of 2016, photovoltaic power generation capacity in China to 34.54 million-kilowatt, a total installed capacity of 77.42 million-kilowatt, new and cumulative installed capacity for the world.

However, in parallel with the rapid development of the photovoltaic industry, also showed heavy subsidies, tax arrears and other ills. For 8 consecutive years of attention to the healthy development of the photovoltaic industry Liu hanyuan, Chairman of tongwei Group on March 2, the “two sessions” press conference focuses on the photovoltaic subsidy, photovoltaic tax proposals.

Liu hanyuan in statement in the said, “as relates China current and the future economic development transformation and energy security and the fog haze problem solution way of PV industry of subsidies problem, after years constantly cumulative, has actually became has a and arrears agricultural migrant workers wage also serious of reality problem, as long-term delay down and have not to effective solution, not only serious impact China PV industry of health, and stable and continued development, also will serious damage China Government of integrity image and paid credit problem. ”

In fact, the photovoltaic subsidy arrears period is one to two years, longer then two or three years, the industry has been badly hit, some enterprise capital chain rupture, many enterprise capital chain rupture of edges. On the surface, subsidies granted object seemingly PV links, but for the whole photovoltaic industrial chain “Mana”. If PV power station took not to subsidies, on must will arrears upstream component manufacturers payment, component manufacturers and will further arrears more upstream of raw materials suppliers of payments, to caused chain arrears, formed large of bad, and bad and “triangle”, not only led to whole PV industry in funds tight of status, also will serious impact investors on PV industry input of confidence and determination, even may led to PV industry faced more big, and disaster sex of Cliff type fell, effect China economic general run.

It can be said that arrears of subsidies under the national policy, the PV industry in China has been paid, the Government paid credit and honesty construction have caused significant damage.

In this regard, Liu hanyuan members recommendation: strengthen government integrity, improve basic pay rules to simplify the subsidy funds collection and disbursement procedures.

Apart from the installed capacity topped out, rapid decline in the cost of the PV industry chain, forming a characteristic “PV speed.” According to the Photovoltaic Industry Association statistics show that 8 years, the component cost/W/W dropped to 35 cents from 60 cents; inverter from fell to 0.3/0.7/w w system “bare cost” (not including land and send) fell from 8.5/w about 6.2/w. Components, systems, inverters, electricity prices 8 years respectively, 91.5%, 90%, and 77.5%.

Although the PV “hard costs” is decreasing, but PV such as corporation tax, land tax, “soft cost” creating pressure for PV companies.

It is understood that the current PV industry in China from the upper reaches of the Silicon raw materials, into middle silicon wafers, cells, modules, inverters and other components, production of primary attachment, to downstream photovoltaic, full tax. The main taxes involved include: corporate income tax 25% and the additional, value-added tax 17%, in addition to the sea area use fees, land-use tax, stamp duty, tax and other tax types, such as factors to consider social security, taxes and fees will be even more alarming.

In terms of financing, photovoltaic industry due to the one-time amount, high investment costs and long recovery period, making PV enterprises difficulty in financing not only difficult to obtain credit and limit space is too small.

Liu hanyuan, the “PV project data measuring on average, pays sales tax average is 1.8 times of operation and maintenance costs, sales tax average net profits of 30%. After receiving the loan, PV enterprises should not only pay higher bank interest rates, and the cost of capital for 6% value added tax is not deductible, as the cost of a large proportion of interest 17% tax levy in full and further increase the tax burden of enterprises. In addition, the new energy subsidy funding gap of up to 60 billion, preliminary project subsidies accounted for more than 50% of total electricity revenues, and further delay, adding to the operating pressure of the enterprise. ”

Liu hanyuan said that with China’s rapid economic development, the haze problem has become more serious in recent years, has had a significant impact on China’s economic and social development and pose grave threats to people’s health. Taken in this context, pressure to cut emissions, restrictions and other measures can only slow down, reduce emissions, and cannot fundamentally eradicate smog. Only by vigorously developing PV-representative of renewable and clean energy, fundamentally change China’s energy consumption structure and realization of electric power, energy consumption and electricity production cleaner, to fundamentally solve the current smog trapped. But at present, the PV industry and the air, the environment of green strategic emerging industries and the transformation of economic development pattern is closely related to, but under higher taxes, in fact, have severely inhibited the healthy development of the industry.

In this regard, Liu hanyuan members recommendation: clean up and reform the irrational tax system; all the tax relief for the photovoltaic industry.

PV industry as a national green industry, its healthy development, national and enterprises to work together, Chairman Liu hanyuan’s advice not only on the development of industry leading companies and care, is also a powerful booster of industrial development, to promote PV industry towards a brilliant future.

Miit Announces 2016 run PV industry in China

Polaris solar PV net news: PV industry is semiconductor technology combined with the new energy demand of emerging industries of strategic importance, it is also an important field of international energy competition. In 2016, the PV industry in China continues the warming trend in the last year, the industrial output reached 336 billion yuan, an increase of 27%, good overall health. First, the industry continues to expand the scale. 2016 poly silicon productions from 194,000 tons, an increase of 17.5%; wafer production 63GW (GW, the same below), an increase of 31.2%, photovoltaic cell production is about 49GW, rose 19.5%, photovoltaic module production is about 53GW, and rose 20.7%, grid-connected PV system annual installed capacity reached 34.5GW, an increase of 127%. Production industry chain link accounted for more than 50% in the world, continues to top the world. Second, business conditions remained robust. Five polysilicon companies average gross margin over 20%, average gross margin over 15% top 10 components, part of the production margin even more than 25% of auxiliary enterprises, access to standard component average profit margin rose 3%, 31 public PV companies, 9 more than 100%. Third, industry development order become more reasonable. Industrial and information technology continue and the announcement of the fifth instalment of the PV manufacturing industry conditions list, received much attention in the implementation, industry standards linked with the credit credit cooperative strengthened, gradually standardize the development order. Facilitated by the Ministry of industry and information technology, intelligent manufacturing continued to promote PV companies, production automation, digital level increases, decreases in employment per unit of output. Merger and reorganization of enterprises willing to, market-led integration of resources to accelerate such as easy as new can successfully restructure LDK LDK, longi shares acquisition of Sun Edison (SunEdison) Malaysian factories. Four is the accelerating industrialization of advanced technology. Advanced crystal silicon battery technology development times break world record, black Silicon business velvet, and back passivation (PERC), and n type double, a efficient crystal silicon battery process technology industrialization accelerated, has built capacity over 10GW, Crystal and more Crystal battery average conversion efficiency reached 20.5% and 19.1%; polysilicon production process get further optimization, backbone enterprise production energy has declined to 80 degrees electric/kg of international advanced level. Five is the product costs continue to decline. Technological advances and economies of scale under the two-wheel-drive, advanced polysilicon production costs in China have dropped to 70 Yuan/kg, crystalline silicon solar module production cost dropped to 2.5/Watt, better resource area of PV power cost decreased to 0.65 Yuan/degree level, and closer to parity, low quality of photovoltaic products make a great contribution for the development of the global PV market. Six were “going out” was accelerated. “Along the way” strategy under the guidance of companies setting up factories abroad, has spread over more than 20 countries around the world, has been built outside the capacity exceeds 5GW, globalization of production was evident. In 2016, the wafer, cell and module exports about US $13.84 billion, down 11.3%, mainly under the influence of overseas enterprises to set up factories in China. Emerging markets such as India, Pakistan, Turkey, Chile exports significantly improved, exports to the traditional markets in Europe and America accounted for below 30%, further reducing the US and European “double reverse” effect.

In the industry to pick up at the same time, development of PV industry in China still has many problems. First, the manufacturing competitiveness is weak. Domestic support policies on the upstream support, enthusiasm for innovation and development of enterprises is not high, the industrial structural contradiction, high-end production capacity is still unable to meet the demand of the domestic market, compared with foreign advanced level remains the key process technology gaps, particularly in the core areas of photovoltaic equipment, new technology such as thin films, heterojunction develops slowly, innovative capacity needs to be improved. Second, the insufficient linkage related policies. The operation of the PV manufacturing industry conditions lack of linkage with downstream applications and other related policies. Parts are not strong, has not entered the standard notice of enterprise applications can still get subsidies, export tax rebates and other offers, mergers and reorganization of affected industry and the survival of the fittest, not conducive to the backward production capacity exit. Third, trade financing, financing your questions still outstanding. Under the influence of early industrial loans, financial institutions credit for photovoltaic manufacturing group there has been no improvement, enterprises are often difficult to get financial support from financial institutions, or taking over 6% or even 10% of the loan interest rate. Financing financing your restricts corporate investment in research and development, technological innovation and industrial restructuring and upgrading. Four domestic demand fluctuations. Fast frequency adjustment of electricity price caused stage volatility in the domestic market, does not match the pace of supply and demand, greater impact on the manufacturing industry, subject to the development of manufacturing industry of inertia, it is difficult to quickly adapt to market fluctuations. First half of 2016 in the aftermath of the Fiery “6.30”, the PV market in the third quarter a vacuum, leading to product prices, most of the enterprises in the red. Five is the application of the market system needs to be improved. Renewable additional funding a larger gap, PV subsidy arrears is serious, non technical factors including photovoltaic, PV costs significantly higher, accelerating the encroaching technological advances. PV annual plans for national and local development planning, uncoordinated, North-West of PV power seriously, distributed PV implementation site, tariff recovery difficult, project financing constraints, greatly affects the enthusiasm of distributed generation projects. Six is the increasingly complex international trade environment. Europe, Japan and other countries not to recognize China’s market economy status, Chinese PV “double reverse” should work more difficult. The European Commission has decided to continue to extend our photovoltaic products to take the “anti-dumping” measures. New US Government trade protection of the atmosphere is also more intense, increasing Sino-US PV “double reverse” reconciliation more difficult.

From the perspective of global renewable energy development, photovoltaic industry is still the main priority areas for national development, the United States, Europe, Japan and other countries in accelerating the layout of national PV industry and application, promote the manufacturing industries back to Thailand, India, Vietnam, and also use its cost advantage to make a difference in this area. In order to further standardize China’s PV industry development, promote industrial restructuring and upgrading, Department of industry and information technology, the next step will focus on the following: first, further strengthening PV policy linkage. Thoroughly implement the PV manufacturing industry standard terms and the further optimization of PV industry opinions on mergers and acquisitions market, enhance coordination between departments, promoting industry standards linked with the power plant construction, payment of subsidies and other policies, and to facilitate corporate restructuring through market mechanisms. Is the PV manufacturing industry to speed up the transformation and upgrading of the second. Integrated policy and funding resources, support in the industrial transformation and upgrading capital photovoltaic business critical technology development and industrialization, encourages PV enterprises to speed up the upgrading of intelligent manufacturing, improve core competitiveness of PV manufacturing, to continue publishing the roadmap of China PV industry development (2017) and lead the industry on health and sustainable development. Three global competitive advantage is to accelerate the expansion of China’s photovoltaic industry. The implementation of the national “along the way” strategy, use of PV industry development of export-oriented advantages, promoting photovoltaic companies accelerate international cooperation capacity and application process, actively explore emerging markets such as South America, zhongxiya, Africa, promote industry globally, and enhancing the industry’s global competitive advantage in China. Four is to promote photovoltaic applications diversification. Introduce new industrialization demonstration base for renewable energy assessment approach, promoting the application of distributed photovoltaic industrial park, play the role of green energy in the green zone, green plants. Exploration in sewage treatment plants, residential, stadiums, highways and other independent regional applications, promote the application of new energy photovoltaic system charging facilities for the pilot. Five is to optimize the environment for industrial development. Cooperate with related departments to promote photovoltaic subsidy system and mechanism innovation, and establish electricity price subsidies with the installed capacity and power cost adjustment mechanism. Guide social capital to reasonable financing, ease the financing of PV industry difficulties. Speed up the PV industry standard systems and photovoltaic applications, testing and certification of public service platform construction of case base.

Comprehensive analysis and forecasting, 2017 overall development of PV industry in China will remain stable, but faced increasing uncertainties both inside and outside. 2017 on the one hand of PV on-grid price adjustment installing, PV power station construction index advance overdraft caused by fluctuations in the domestic market, and the “double reverse” continuing market uncertainty caused by fermentation, would have greater challenges for sustainable development of manufacturing industry. Meanwhile, merger and reorganization of enterprises and integration will be accelerated, enterprises with technical, financial, management and industrial layout and other advantages will further seize market opportunities, promoting industry accelerate the survival of the fittest.

Green certificates needs new energy quotas support

Arctic star solar PV network news: recently released of on pilot can renewable energy green power certificate issued and the voluntary subscription trading system of notification, on green certificate of issued and trading, made provides, green power certificate since July 1, 2017 up official carried out subscription work, notification clear wind electric, and PV power Enterprise sold can renewable energy green power certificate Hou, corresponding of power no longer enjoy national can renewable energy electric price additional funds of subsidies. In case of clear voluntary participation, how to arouse the enthusiasm of purchasing green power certificates, is the key to promoting green electricity certificate.

Present goal is to non-fossil energy in primary energy consumption by 2020, increasing its share to 15%. To meet this goal, despite the current weak growth in demand for electricity, but some time in the future the Government will strongly support the policy level wind and solar energy development. According to the 2017 national energy work Conference goals, to achieve new wind power installed capacity in 2017, 20 million-kilowatt and PV installed capacity 15 million-kilowatt. China renewable energy development goals clearly, policies supporting strong, and China has the manufacturing capacity to accomplish this goal. But how to accomplish set goals effectively and economically, depends to a large extent the Government’s planning and policy design.

With the rapid growth of wind power, solar scale, abandon light wind up becoming the core issue in China’s new energy development. Statistics show that in 2015, China abandoned the wind up when the total was 38.6 billion-kilowatt, up wind up is 14.6%. 2016 1 in June, when China abandoned total wind up of 37.1 billion-kilowatt, close to the annual level of 2015, abandon light wind up is 19.6%. With prorated all of 2016, when China abandoned wind up light up to about 70 billion-kilowatt. From the perspective of power on hours, 2011-2016 wind power generation hours decreased year by year, hours of wind power decreased 1920 hours from 2011 to 2016 in 1742 hours PV from 2013 1368 hour in 2015 to 1133 hours.

Judging from the current situation, the new energy price subsidies have been able to meet the cost of renewable energy development, subsidies will be reduced year by year in the future, new energy subsidies lag issues are relatively easy to solve. Main conflict focused on new energy development abandoned wind up light, light background and the need to abandon wind up on a large scale more quickly expand the scale of difficulties.

First, the oversupply of power industry as a whole is an important factor now abandon wind up. 2015 national average utilization hours of power generating equipment of 3,969 hours, the lowest since 1978 in 2016, will be further reduced. Electric power industry, new energy industry’s profits will be sorely tested. From the point of view of electricity demand, the need to reduce the new energy development goals.

Secondly, the abandoned wind up despite some technical reasons, but even more crucial is the market. Abandon wind up at this stage the paradox of light generation and load spaces do not match. Northwest Territories rich in renewable energy endowment, but demand is limited, cannot scale to eliminate new energy power in the region. The “Thirteen-Five” plan has been clearly put forward “new energy East” strategy, new energy generation in particular photovoltaic development priority gradually slopes towards the distributed, to the Eastern and central areas. East Central region market capacity, capable of carrying larger volumes of new energy power generation. However, the new energy resources are relatively limited in the eastern region, the need to develop distributed, distribution difficulties, distributed development goals set by the Government are often out of reach.

Therefore, in order to complete the proportion of non-fossil energy in primary energy consumption by 2020 15% target, needs in the context of low power demand remains the rapid growth of renewable energy, relying on voluntary green power certificates obviously difficult to solve the abandoned wind up phenomenon, you need to consider implementing a more robust measures.

Therefore, the notice clearer since 2018 initiate renewable electricity quotas check Enforce constraint and green power certificates trading. In the electric power industry as a whole under the background of oversupply can really effective measures to deal with abandoned wind up light is the implementation of renewable energy quota system, and the certificate of the trade quotas can provide flexibility, reduce the costs of mandatory quotas.

It can be said that the quota system (green power certificate) and price subsidies to support two mechanisms for new energy development. Electricity price by directly pricing allow investors access to stable and predictable earnings and quota system (green power certificate) more through market mechanisms will guide enterprises to develop new energy at the lowest cost. Online pricing policy generally applies to the initial stage in the development of new energy, and quota system more suitable for mature stage of development, we support the development of new energy in the future should be the on-grid price policy used in conjunction with a quota system.

Renewable energy quota assessment and green power certificates to enforce constraints required to consider the following aspects: first, from renewable energy quota system bearer, bear the principal can be a power plant or power supply enterprises. If it is a power plant as a bearer of, generally take the form of buying renewable energy certificates, quota compulsory costs transfer to conventional power plants.

Power sector reform currently under way, the core is opening electricity sales market, which as bearer of the basic conditions for power supply enterprises. Sale under the condition of electricity market opening, as a bearer of power supply enterprises to adopt a more flexible approach would cost quota obligations through the end sale price for guidance. Second, in the allocation of quotas for renewable targets, need more resource conditions, regional economic development, as well as the region’s power grid. Third, support for renewable energy development, the operation of the quota system more flexible mechanisms, based mainly on electricity market mechanisms to regulate.

Of course, the operability of the quota system will also be under the influence of electricity market reform process, because the quotas and green power certificates through the market operation mechanism is required to ensure quotas effective transactions. China new energy development clearly has gone beyond the initial stage and entered the stage of mature development requires coordination of electricity market reform, energy policy by the new single price subsidy policies towards price subsidies and quotas implemented. Particularly in the context of relatively sluggish growth in electricity demand, quotas can improve the competitiveness of renewable energy, effectively abandoned the wind up. Moreover, the quota system through market means, allowing additional costs to transfer to the consumer end of the market, reduce the impact of changes in subsidies for new energy development.
