Innovation Research and development capability to upgrade China PV to the international level should you learn?

Polaris solar PV net news: “innovation is the way out for China PV industry. “The Chinese Photovoltaic Industry Association Secretary-General Wang Bohua recently DuPont Teijin MylariGuard back panel to promote the Conference, said. According to Wang Bohua views and policy, market, cost, personnel, and other factors, China PV industry is a fundamental factor in the development of technological innovation. “In the development of today’s technology, innovation has combined with standards, intellectual property rights, which together occupy the commanding heights. ”

Innovation Research and development capability is yet to be improved

From 2008 to 2013, China’s solar industry has experienced the baptism of two roller-coaster. But in the most difficult years of the industry, China PV technology innovation is very active. Wang Bohua figures show that from 2011 to 2014, investment costs per thousand metric tons of polysilicon production line down 47%, polysilicon production of comprehensive energy consumption dropped by 35%.

Wang Bohua believes that in times of massive losses of enterprises, since there is no relaxation technique innovation, PV industry in China will be able to hold out until now. Since last year, China PV industry as a whole to quickly pick up, to a certain extent also benefit from this.

However, I have to say, China PV industry development capabilities should be improved. According to the photovoltaic industry, revealed to reporters, when some large PV enterprises in building new production lines, are often the first choice of foreign advanced equipment.

Firms do, is based on accuracy, efficiency and reliability considerations. “Our next-generation technology, new materials, new techniques, and even some of materials for semiconductor technology, the basis of a number of key properties, such as the research, compared with the international advanced level, far behind. In terms of special equipment, special materials, there are gaps. Still dependent on foreign markets. “Wang Bohua said.

Giant electronics technology company General Manager Luo Zigui in Shanghai told Xinhua in an interview today that, photovoltaic industry’s ultimate goal is power without the Government subsidies and cheap Internet access and, therefore, any PV photovoltaic back panels must together with its production costs to assess performance. If PV industry cost-efficiency targets are not met, fluorine-containing polymer back sheet and no better value. When using low cost and high performance polyester to manufacture PET backplane, which maintains a stable performance in 25 years ‘ time, and provides good protection for PV modules.

Another noteworthy phenomenon is that in research institutions, especially in terms of key laboratories, gap is also evident in China and abroad. According to the photovoltaic industry’s view, even though China PV industry also has own laboratory at national, provincial and enterprise, but for some high-end technology, advanced technology research, are some of the major PV manufacturers and foreign laboratories in cooperative research and development.

What to learn from the advanced international level

At present, the Chinese photovoltaic industry in the international market, faced with the threat of trade friction-prone, but also faces unprecedented opportunities to domestic policy. Experts pointed out that technological innovation will not only be the basis for future development of PV industry in China, are also core elements of sustainable development.

Gap there, international advanced enterprises of which experience for China PV companies learn from it? DuPont Teijin Europe Chairman JohnC.Miller told Xinhua in an interview today that, there are three key elements of innovation, but they are not sort of priority.

These three elements are: first, we must have very deep knowledge of the market to really understand the market demand, participants in the supply chain and supply chain. Followed by the customer relationship. Interact with customers to ensure research results, also can make development more efficient and faster. Once again is through the development of high technology, to realize the products our customers need.

According to JohnC.Miller’s introduction, Teijin DuPont invested about 30 million dollars a year on research and development. “The product development cycle, generally depends on the complexity of the requirements and development. In General, the development cycle can vary from six months to five years. Some product from scratch, and some products are on top of the material, and other research and development experience in the past, build a new platform to research and development. ”

When asked whether the joint while doing research and development in conjunction with the Chinese PV industry, JohnC.Miller said, DuPont Teijin’s research and development work, sometimes alone, sometimes with some partners, such as research and development company developing. Choice of development mode, on the one hand depends on the opportunity, on the other hand depend on the support or team product requirements of manufacturers, and the project itself.

“I personally think that the global PV market will continue to grow, China’s market will become one of the world’s largest PV markets. In terms of component Assembly, China is now among the top ten markets, will grow further in the future. “JohnC.Miller said.
