Li junfeng development of solar thermal power generation through industrial

Polaris solar PV net news: open up the industry chain development of solar-thermal power generation is the most crucial element of

Reporter: what do you think about the status quo of the development of solar-thermal power generation in China?

Li junfeng: I think the problem four solar-thermal power generation in China now. First, the chain is not perfect, there is no business to get through the entire value chain, which is the biggest problem, not only a lack of system integration capabilities, lack of spare parts supply chain, and even lack of solar-thermal power systems operation and maintenance experience, do not have the objective conditions for rapid development. Second, the experiences from abroad and limited competitiveness of solar-thermal power generation, it is suitable for special occasions. From a global generating capacity each year, solar thermal power and wind power, hydropower and other renewable power generation is not an order of magnitude. The late 70 to early 80 ‘s, solar-thermal power generation technology abroad have matured, but is the problem of competitiveness, has been slow in recent years despite the speed, but the scale each year remained at kW level. Third, the mechanism. Photovoltaic power generation costs can be reduced to below 1 Yuan/kWh, is still a large fall, but solar-thermal power generation is now more than 1.2 Yuan/kWh, declined after the space is small, only in terms of generating capacity, compared with photovoltaic, solar-thermal power generation is not competitive, but solar-thermal power generation’s greatest strengths is stored energy, as its peak. Question is whether it can peak? If so, whether they could reduce peak electricity prices? Peak power station built in load Center, currently in delingha, Qinghai will have no competitive advantage. Last is the issue of resources and match. In China, good light, and water, land is cheaper, and local electricity load peak, has too few places like this, if the power does not peak, light and heat will compete with PV.

Reporter: taking into account the difficulties referred to above, you heat generation of light “Thirteen-Five” plan have any suggestions?

Li junfeng: in view of the target set in the past and the actual situation, I do not recommend “Thirteen-Five” in planning the development of solar-thermal power generation indicator at this stage is to seek truth from facts, do the work. My thought is progressive, evolving and perfecting solar-thermal power generation market, roughly divided into four periods. The first stage, between now and 2020 to complete test project, open up the industry chain. The second stage, from 2020-2025, through the demonstration power plant to build industrial chain, improving the supply capacities of industrial chain. After the maturity of the industry chain, approximately in the year 2025 before entering the third phase, for large-scale development, improve the industrial chain. A perfect and mature industrial chain, entered the fourth stage is the development of policies, commercialization development and perfecting the system and mechanism, to deploy the solar-thermal power generation into the country as a whole, at this stage can provide specific indicators for development of solar-thermal power generation industry. Solar thermal industry should be based on the previous steps towards using the 10-15 time, the first three stages, to build internationally competitive solar-thermal power generation industry chain, the most important, followed by commercial development.

Reporter: you say that solar thermal power generation in China to create an internationally competitive industry, the “international competitiveness” means what?

Li junfeng: real competitiveness has always been we have this ability. When it comes to the international competitiveness of solar-thermal power, unto the solar-thermal power generation to really have independent intellectual property rights.

Solar thermal power generation cycle does not exist

Reporter: what is your understanding of current solar-thermal power generation “industrial policies and policies in the industry,” the “vicious circle”?

Li junfeng: it’s like the chicken and the egg. If eating eggs, egg born, regardless of where did the chicken come from. Areas of light and heat, I would say depth is fish, larger fish in deeper water, it’s a natural process. Now no fish in hot water, water is not deep enough. Enterprises need to work hard, whether it’s solar thermal power generation technology and equipment, is not produced by the State, because it is not a national strategic issues. Solar-thermal power generation problem now wants to make it hard for domestic enterprises to solve, this goes back to the chain, we lack a complete industry chain and competitive, we must create a, which is the core of development of solar-thermal power generation.

Interviewer: so, do you think the development of solar-thermal power generation “vicious circle” does not exist?

Li junfeng: Yes, it does not exist. National thermal power generation has been to light has a clear policy direction is to support solar-thermal power, as long as the power station to make national accounts price. Accused Delhi of solar-thermal power station in Zhejiang received 1.2 Yuan/kWh of electricity prices, this is not a clear signal? Others say can do it cheaper, it should at least make a, is now no business operations, or to continue with the State policy, policy is clear, one thing one debate, do it as soon as electricity prices, not to say didn’t do to prices.

Reporter: but, some people say that solar thermal power generation equipment and technology in the industry is very advanced, but in China no chance to verify or not proven but was rejected by the foreign; in addition, State-owned enterprises cannot exist because there is no electricity price calculates the return on investment of solar-thermal power station, only in a State of wait-and-see.

Li junfeng: first of all, even the “experience” are not, how can you say that is advanced? After all, the solar thermal power station will eventually have to do it yourself, any advanced technology must be done and let the market recognition, so all over the world.

In addition, any new things from scratch, to rely on big business to do testing. Why some enterprises lead while others lag behind? Is what you didn’t do, I had to do it, at least in this circle is leading. After the solar-thermal power generation has matured, the State must give the price. Coal power, nuclear power, wind power, photovoltaic power generation is to benchmark price, why mention solar-thermal power generation does not give it? That still does not have the conditions for solar-thermal power generation electricity prices.

So, what the Government should do? First of all through this way and have sense to test project, pricing and investment subsidies. The demonstration power plant phase, can send electricity prices because the general price level is measured, such as doing 10 solar-thermal power station, trough power station, Tower, allow enterprises to do it themselves, to be competitive, States can do with tender to demonstration projects. Then the State can make a number of pricing, conducted large-scale development. Finally, benchmark pricing, where built power plants, to work out. Solar thermal power plant in China now only controlled in delingha, how to measure and develop benchmark price? How use it as the basis of calculating a Beijing, Sichuan, solar-thermal power generation price, much less calculating national benchmark price of solar thermal power generation, not countries don’t want to benchmark prices, is to work out and can’t count.
