Polaris solar PV net news: over the past week, the National Energy Board was surprised the markets a set of recent data. In the first three quarters of 3.79GW in China, domestic new PV (ground) 2.45GW on line capacity, add new distributed grid-connected PV capacity of 1.34GW. That leads to the question: why would six months are gone? Whether 14GW 13GW, or guarantee of 10GW, left a quarter to get really drunk. However, who said it was impossible to do?
Recently there was a high-tech fair, and ultimately, the PV of this emerging industry crowd, but technology is what all the controversy. Did anyone win?
Mexico, and India, and Peru and so on are strongly promoting solar power, suddenly, United Kingdom Minister for energy told us: United Kingdom solar farms may not be welcomed … … This is where?
There is more market dynamics and doubts, all in this article – focusing solar PV market developments at home and abroad, to our readers.
Technical line dispute along with scientific and technological enterprise development, photovoltaic industry is no exception. Earlier, the GCL and Chinese crystalline silicon thin film solar two technology routes can have their respective merits argued. The high cross-halls, who faced off with a crystalline silicon photovoltaic enterprises, reignite the photovoltaic technology dispute. Even SI road in the camp, also polycrystalline and single-crystal silicon two technological lines of argument.
Must win? Duel-with strength!
“Photovoltaic industrial chain”
Polysilicon-the output of the first three quarters reached 98,000 tonnes
China PV Industry Association Secretary-General Wang Bohua said at the 14th China PV Conference in 2014, polysilicon production capacity significantly increased, and annual production is expected to exceed 130,000 tons, compared with 80,000 tonnes in 2013, an increase of 62.5%, where the first polysilicon production had reached 98,000 tonnes in the third quarter. Under the influence of external and internal factors, China polysilicon production enterprise has 18, effective capacity of 155,000 tons, and corporate earnings situation gets better. But some enterprises are still at a break-even point, and even losses, business is not so optimistic.
The evening of November 17, Leshan electric power announced Le tianwei, subsidiary of insolvent, proposed creditor identity Le tianwei, apply to the Court for bankruptcy liquidation. This is Sichuan two giants of tianwei Sichuan silicon industry and xinguang Silicon fell one after another, after another to escape bankruptcy, “whipping boy.” Faced with excess capacity, huge debt, tianwei bankruptcy as early as expected. Hold Silicon is King of times long gone, return to tianwei Sichuan silicon industry, xinguang silicon, tianwei Silicon giants of the once-glorious, is worthy of our reflection, why polysilicon manufacturers would go this far?
Price analysis: polysilicon prices continued to fall, including solar-grade polysilicon prices fell to 20.62$/kg, b-grade polysilicon prices also rose to 20.22$/kg, polysilicon weak season has arrived, some polysilicon production high and polysilicon manufacturers are facing price declines.
Price analysis: polysilicon prices remained stable, single-chip prices continued to slide, the stability of polycrystalline silicon wafer mainly due to robust demand in China, compared with silicon chip prices decreased, mainly by Japan the effects of a slowdown in the market.
Price analysis: polycrystalline cells remained stable, single crystal and battery price continues to fall, supported by domestic demand, polycrystalline cells maintain the current price levels. Component prices remained stable, thin film crystalline silicon solar module and solar module prices at 0.621, respectively USD/w and $ 0.641/w, despite China’s strong domestic demand, but not enough to further raise the price of components. Order rush phenomenon this month, module manufacturers to ship more intensive, because components business orders are now being dominated by dozens of MW in orders, can take orders has been largely dominated by enterprises.
Efficiency is the key to future technological developments
Global solar industry will continue to provide all kinds of solar manufacturing technology with strong growth potential expected solar module power will continue to create new records, and module efficiency improvement should be the manufacturer’s full attention. Over the next five years, the solar manufacturing and end-market supply will be divided into the following three types: standard crystalline silicon using conventional solar-grade wafer manufacturing technology, using high quality silicon manufacturing technology of high efficiency crystalline silicon using similar sedimentary processes in the flat-panel display industry’s thin film solar panel technology.
According to NPD Solarbuzz reports, films and high efficient crystalline silicon solar modules of 5.3GW growth of supply from 2014 to 2018 is 14.5GW. High efficiency crystalline silicon technologies what’s new in manufacturers including SolarCity plans to expand the production capacity of Silevo and FirstSolar TetraSun solar energy technology for mass production.
Taiwan solar gain
For the solar market, believes that United States new countervailing factors currently battery business gross margin loss only flat edges, or even negative, as new energy resources, such as wafer factory, gross profits fared worse. If announced in December the United States eventually convicted of anti-dumping tax rate further reduced, so once again have access to United States markets for, in addition to increased shipments to and also to alleviate the present industry competitors, Rob United States orders outside circumstances.
Japan domestic demand for solar cells continue to grow
Japan solar PV Association (JPEA) statistics showed 20th, Japan domestic demand for solar cells continue to grow, 2014 7 September, total shipments of solar cells (domestic + export) increased from 21% to 2,567MW from a year earlier, 9th consecutive quarter of growth, and shipments after 2014, 2,786MW 1-March quarter since records began in 1981, and in the history of high standards.
United States ten companies nearly 2GW of capacity expansion
United States solar PV manufacturer about the recent announcements of new or expanded capacity Herald the PV manufacturing industry in North America is a significant shift of fate. According to the analysis, ten companies announced specific plans for photovoltaic production, will increase by almost 2GW of new capacity, particularly in the United States, is expected to close to half of 2015 on new capacity.
Solar glass industry faces in the most recent period has been changed. 2010 Europe using only 7% imported from other regions of the solar glass in 2013, this share grew more than four times to 30%. This year, over 90% of imported goods from China, IHS said in 2010, however, only just over one-third of 7% of imported glass from China. In other words, starting in 2010 for European supply just over 2.5% solar glass, China now accounts for 27% total solar glass supplies in Europe.
With the replacement of glass manufacturing technology are expected in the next few years building energy-saving glass and photovoltaic glass to a bout, high added value will become the glass out of glass, upgrade product is the only way. As the demand for high value added glass trends increases, glass coating products market expanded rapidly, by elevating the conversion cost-saving applications of all glass coating characteristics will be mainstream.
The “PV market in China”
First three quarters of the domestic PV 3.79GW
According to the National Energy Board, 2014 in the first three quarters of 3.79GW, new domestic PV (ground) 2.45GW on line capacity, add new distributed grid-connected PV capacity of 1.34GW. To complete the Energy Secretary, Wu xinxiong expectations—annual 13GW of installed capacity, the last 1.5 months of the year, power station installed capacity will rapidly increase, companies will try for grid-connected.
The strategic action plan for energy development (2014-2020)
The energy development strategies action plan recently issued by the State Council (2014-2020) points out that according to output and eliminate use of both at the same time, centralized and distributed development principle, accelerate the development of renewable energy, by 2020, the proportion of non-fossil fuels in primary energy consumption reached 15%, electricity feed-in tariff of wind power and coal, photovoltaic and grid sales price. China energy network said Han Xiaoping, the Chief Information Officer, this means that the price of wind power and photovoltaic power and the gradual convergence of the market when the State subsidy will be cancelled.
