Regional investment distribution of PV industry East

Polaris solar PV net news: because of the Northwest ground station “abandoned” problem has yet to be alleviated, both the policy and the market level, in promoting photovoltaic power plant investment in China, regional patterns of change.

Figures from the National Energy Board, in the new PV installed capacity in the first quarter of this year, is no longer a special branch in Northwest China, more than 70% of new installed capacity comes from the East and other regions.

This regional pattern of change is obviously delighted by the competent Department.

Liang Zhipeng, Deputy Director of the National Energy Board new Energy Division recently said, with photovoltaic power plant in the Northwest “abandoned” a growing risk, companies want to shift photovoltaic to the East, to achieve greater development in these areas.

Data show that in non-western regions, continues to keep the ground station alone big momentum. Of course, there are individual exceptions of provinces such as Zhejiang, which distributed power station installed capacity is much larger than the ground, and other distributed capacity of larger provinces including Jiangsu, Guangdong, Shandong, Anhui, and so on.

Data also showed that the first quarter of 2016, national new photovoltaic power installed capacity of 7.14 million-kilowatt, where the PV power station 6.17 million-kilowatt, distributed PV 970,000-kilowatt.

Analysts believe that new installed capacity of photovoltaic power station in the eastern region under the background of rapid growth, will further weaken the external sending power to dissolve, may account for the northwest province “abandoned” is more serious.

In the eastern region, with the increase in installed capacity, eliminate problems may be better than the North-Western Province, but their first encounter a bottleneck restriction. With the fierce market competition, may be a direct response to the cost of land, and ultimately the power station’s overall revenue.

Focus shifting to the East in

Photovoltaic power plant in the Northwest provinces, power will always be in the heart of pain.

According to the National Energy Board, in the first quarter of this year, the problem is still very serious. Abandoned the country when power cuts of about 1.9 billion-kilowatt, occurs mainly in Gansu, Xinjiang and Ningxia. Among them, abandoned in Gansu power 840 million kWh, abandon 39%, Xinjiang (Corps) abandoned power 760 million kWh, abandon rates 52%; abandoned in Ningxia power 210 million kWh, abandon rates 20%.

How to solve this problem, officials passed on the information, still will dissolve at the first place.

Hou Shouli, head of the price Department of the NDRC pricing Division recently said, will study the promotion of renewable energy to dissolve, energy prices for the development of policies to promote renewable energy sustainable.

Energy guidance will be issued in about 2016 notice, National Energy Board, will implement the State Council’s guidance on undertaking industrial transfer in the Midwest to support layout optimization of high energy-consuming industries in the Western region, and increase the proportion of energy to dissolve on the spot. Support the East and accelerating the transfer of high energy-consuming industries in the central region, implementation of speed-raising project of clean energy, reduce reliance on long-distance energy transmission.

Statistics show that in order to improve the ability of local power to dissolve, including Qinghai, Gansu, Ningxia and other provinces, and increase the proportion of the high energy-consuming industries.

In power under the background of the problem will not be solved, also undergoing a subtle change in the market.

Data shows that regionally, dominance of photovoltaic plant investment is bid farewell to the Northwest, began shifting to the East.

Among them, the North, East, Central and southern cumulative PV power installed capacity totaling 25.6 million-kilowatt, exceeded that of North 23.64 million-kilowatt, which installed the larger provinces including Jiangsu and Hebei 4.4 million-kilowatt 2.72 million-kilowatt, Shandong 2.21 million-kilowatt 2.17 million-kilowatt, Anhui, Zhejiang and Shanxi 1.22 million-kilowatt.

This momentum continues, first quarter of the year, new photovoltaic power generation installed capacity in these areas is more than 1 million-kilowatt, 1.5 million-kilowatt, and 1.31 million-kilowatt, and 1.04 million-kilowatt respectively.

Specific to the provinces, new installed capacity in the first quarter more than 500,000-kilowatt in provinces including: Shaanxi, Yunnan 940,000-kilowatt, Shandong, Xinjiang 710,000-kilowatt, 600,000-kilowatt, 530,000-kilowatt, 580,000-kilowatt, Zhejiang, Anhui and Jiangxi 520,000-kilowatt.

Data also showed that in non-western regions, continues to keep the ground station alone big momentum. Of course, there are individual exceptions of provinces such as Zhejiang, which distributed power station installed capacity is much larger than the ground, and other distributed capacity of larger provinces including Jiangsu, Guangdong, Shandong, Anhui, and so on.

Multiple impacts will gradually

PV investment regional center of gravity changes, whose impact will gradually emerge.

Statistics show that at ease in the Northwest provinces of abandoned light power, power delivery is another way to hopes. In Gansu, for example, as the main delivery channel in Jiuquan to Hunan power ± 800,000 volts high voltage direct current transmission line project has been started and is expected to be put into operation next year.

However, with the increase of local renewable energy installed capacity in the East, might make their changes.

A case study of central China power grid, 2015 1 in November, the central China power grid, electricity consumption of the whole society grew 0.9%, growth over a year earlier to 1%. But on the other hand, in the case of lower power requirements, including all types of power new energy capacity while maintaining fast growth.

According to “Twelve-Five” during the wind power installed capacity is expected to rise to 80% in central China power grid, generating average annual growth of 79%, 267% annual increase in installed capacity of solar power, generating average annual growth of 240%. The next 3 years is expected, new energy installed capacity is expected to rise to 50%, will continue to grow rapidly.

“One minus one by” behind, is the decline in the overall number of hours the generator group. Central China power grid, said electricity markets have been unable to support the rapid growth of various types of power, resulting in decreased power utilization hours yearly. In January-November, the network utilization hours of thermal power unit only 3,465 minutes declined by 389 hours.

In addition to dissolve lower demand, but other questions come from the peak.

Central China power grid, said due to the large proportion of hydropower in central China power grid, wet and dry seasonal clear water utilities make power generation accounted for more than 60%, resulting in net load capacity can only be achieved by 30%-35%, peak capacity is insufficient. The next few years, with the increasing proportion of new energy capacity, peak will be more difficult.

Analysts believe that new installed capacity of photovoltaic power station in the eastern region under the background of rapid growth, will further weaken the external sending power to dissolve, may account for the northwest province “abandoned” is more serious.

In the eastern region, with the increase in installed capacity, eliminate problems may be better than the North-Western Province, but their first encounter a bottleneck restriction. With the fierce market competition, may be a direct response to the cost of land, and ultimately the power station’s overall revenue.

Liang Zhipeng, said in the eastern region, the first problem is that it faces the problem of land, followed by can provide more favourable market conditions for the photovoltaic industry.

He said hope distributed PV to deal directly with the user. Through electric power reform, in terms of transmission for distributed PV has more favorable conditions, making Eastern and middle regions of greater development of distributed PV.
