Polaris solar PV net news: adding “disclosure” provisions

The second focus adjustment is “had been running projects, mechanisms to ensure career run a reasonable” excuse me what are the specific contents?

Matsuyama: adjust, certification system certification “equipment” certification “business plan”. For certification has been made of “business plan”, is put into operation, we will also carry out checks. If there is no proper inspection and maintenance, it will order its rectification. This can roughly estimate by looking at the output. Once the capacity decreased to conduct inspections, corrective, and you can also cancel the certification.

On the relationship with the local government, we will share with local governments to apply for information. Local governments in order to prevent disputes with local residents, work being carried out to develop regulations, once certification is achieved, to ask the operators for rectification, have limited effectiveness. And if the local government prior to the certification application stage of mastering information, you can call in advance. To this end, the need to have provisions of the information disclosure.

Current legal information was not made public yet?

Pine Mountain: this is because it is the “device authentication”. Similar to forming property of a system of subsidies, after the certification, and in some sense is left, not on the formation of power supervision. Information is also restricted. Through legal amendments, adding related articles “information disclosure” will become possible. Because using the national pay taxes, so people can see the station information, under the supervision of the national health service.

That contribute to the advancement of the front when it comes to the three obstacles (cost, systems infrastructure, national identity and co) in the last line, the “national understanding”, “planet”.

Price reduced drive PV industry reform

The third priority, “cost-efficient pricing” will have a tremendous impact on the willingness of enterprises to get involved in new projects.

Matsuyama: mentioned two points, is advancing the cause of short project health and operation of health and so on. So far, we are in a “better” called for operators to invest, and the future system is to attract long-term power operators.

On this basis, we will pass the 3rd “cost efficient pricing”, to the operators involved in the renewable energy business of the future to seek reform of the cost structure.

This is important for long-term maintenance of renewable energy. Goal by 2030, 2040, renewable energy independence from the FIT, and grow into sustainable power generation industry. This depends not only on panels, and design and construction. To this goal, and now the cost is too high.

Germany FIT price has dropped 13 yen per kWh. Japan is 27 yen, is Germany twice.

Matsuyama: people often think Germany prices compared, in fact, in many countries than Germany. For example, China’s prices have fallen below 10 trillion yen. Around the world, generally is about 7-9 Yuan per kWh.

Why did Japan offer high? This is because the price of solar panels, especially construction fees and service charges. How to reduce these costs? Germany in the process of reducing the purchase price, in the photovoltaic industry has been reformed. 1 to shorten the duration to 4 per cent, reduction through mechanized labor, began a competition to reduce costs.

Japan also needs to maintain the same field, last strong enterprises, operators of high added value industries will become refined. For 2030, this competition will become increasingly fierce. To achieve the goal, as it is now by adding the actual cost of the purchase price is limited. We need to set target prices, stimulate competition and strong win and increase the share of operators, increased efficiency in the country.

Renewable energy investment in the next round before the start, we need to cultivate such a powerful industry, ready to invest the carrier. So the adjusted purchase price pricing method.

Solar power can be used 3 ways

FIT adjusting the report mainly refers to the 3 kinds of pricing method of photovoltaic power generation, namely, competitive bidding, price schedules, leader by the purchase price.

Matsuyama: we make photovoltaic power generation according to the different sizes, with different pricing.

Mass like a million photovoltaic plant power plant, costs vary for each item. Is basically the bigger cost is lower. Because the capital strength of large enterprises, so by competing, is also more prone to innovation. Therefore, can be used up to the competitive price “bidding”. Applicable output size of, as appropriate, at a later date. If “over 2MW”, a large number of 1.9MW, slightly less than 2MW project will be excluded, to how to draw this line, we will carefully discuss and take a decision.

But large-scale projects do not have to use competitive bidding, but envisages the case may reduce the purchase price consideration. In some regions, this situation may also occur. If new businesses is not active, no hope of lower purchase price, would not be used.

The other hand, are really not meant for the use of competitive bidding for residential use. PV power installed on the House, and House construction by the Housing Corporation. Solar panels with the same lighting, wall materials and other, is one component of a House cannot be individually cut out photovoltaic power generation. Views were expressed, “the purchase price can be reduced, but it is best to give long-term expectations, it is easier to develop goods.” In this case, the “range” approach should be effective, which is looking a few years later, set a price schedule.

Moreover, with the passage of time, new houses equipped with solar panels will become commonplace, domestic enterprises could be equipped at the cut of profits. With photovoltaic power generation in the future become ZEH (zero-energy housing) part of the innovations will also become easier, we hope that leads up to the trend.

They could bid for large-scale projects and projects for residential use, medium PV projects be?

Matsuyama: for medium projects, if the use of competitive bidding, operator of power may not be enough. First of all will be the same as before, the yearly price. But compared with the past, policy constraints on pricing should be more stringent.

Energy optimization is the key to solar power

Photovoltaic renewable energy seems to be setting other than the purchasing price for several years.

Matsuyama: geothermal, long development cycle, such as wind, small hydro power, is also effective in set the purchasing price for several years. In fact, the yearly pricing only Japan, overseas is generally used FIT range adjustments.

PV popularization of bias will be corrected?

Matsuyama: photovoltaic power generation other than wind, geothermal, small hydro and biomass power generation, promote slow, in large part, that is because the three mentioned disorders, two factors besides cost constraints. Costs by setting annual prices, to some extent, however, restricting the development of wind power system infrastructure, prone in the geothermal and regional relations, and slowly took the time to address.

Energy mix made by 2030 the share of renewable energy (22~24%) to achieve it?

Matsuyama: when deciding on the energy mix, and also determines the distribution of renewable energy: photovoltaic power is 64GW, 7%. It’s not hard “poles”, competing with all kinds of power, this number can be changed. Over a three-block of renewable power will increase.

But other than photovoltaic power is greatly influenced by factors other than cost, estimated in the future is difficult to rapid promotion. Photovoltaic power generation holds the key to energy optimization, will no doubt become the core of renewable energy. (Full end)
