PV benchmark price reduction over 30 enterprise calls for shift in subsidies

Polaris solar PV net news: recently, anecdotal, parts of the national development and Reform Commission is considering in 2017 China’s PV on-grid price reduction increased from 2% to about 13%.

This means that, in the current resource area new benchmark PV price of 0.8 Yuan/kWh, second-class resources 0.88 Yuan/kWh and three types of resource area of 0.98 Yuan/kWh based on 2017 PV on-grid price may be lowered to 0.696 yuan/kWh, 0.7656 and 0.8526 Yuan/kWh/kWh.

But, on in September 29, national NDRC released has national NDRC on adjustment new energy benchmark Internet electric price of notification (views draft) (following referred to views draft), which PV Internet electric price three class area respectively from 0.8 Yuan/kWh, and 0.88 Yuan/kWh, and 0.98 Yuan/kWh cut to 0.55 Yuan/kWh, and 0.65 Yuan/kWh, and 0.75 Yuan/kWh.

Implementation of the new energy mechanism for benchmark prices fall back just

The draft States that new benchmark in China will continue to implement new energy prices fall back just mechanism, according to the new energy and industrial technology progress and cost reductions, reduced affordable acquisition within 2018 new onshore wind and 2017 new photovoltaic energy benchmark price. Photovoltaic power generation, onshore wind power price new benchmark coal price on the ground (including desulfurization, denitrification, dust plus 1 cent/kWh electricity price of ultra low emission charges) within part of the settlement by the local provincial power grid; higher parts be subsidized through the national renewable energy development fund.

In addition, the draft States that, to reduce distributed solar PV subsidies, access to the roof of a building and ancillary venues construction of distributed solar power projects in the project file can be selected “spontaneous use, more than power” or “full Internet” mode. On “spontaneous use, and more than electric Internet” mode of distributed PV power implemented according to full power subsidies of mode, subsidies standard respectively for: a resources district 0.2 Yuan/kWh, and II class resources district 0.25 Yuan/kWh, and three class resources district 0.3 Yuan/kWh, above subsidies funds through can renewable energy development fund be paid, by grid Enterprise turned pay; which, distributed PV power system use more than Internet of power, by grid enterprise according to local coal-fired unit benchmark Internet electric price acquisition. “Full Internet” mode PV prices, subsidies granted approval procedures in accordance with the implementation of photovoltaic power stations.

In addition to photovoltaic, offshore wind energy, new biomass power generation and so on, of the draft of the offshore wind energy projects to non-tender, distinguish intertidal wind power and offshore wind energy two types determines price. Prior to December 31, 2018 and commissioning of offshore wind power project price is 0.8 yuan per kWh (including tax, the same below), wind power project price of intertidal to 0.7 yuan per kilowatt hour. Offshore wind power price new benchmark coal price on the ground (including sulphur, stock, dust plus 1 cent/kWh electricity price of ultra low emission charges) within part of the settlement by the local provincial power grid; higher parts be subsidized through the national renewable energy development fund.

On January 1, 2017, after the incorporation of agricultural and forestry biomass power generation, other biomass, waste incineration, landfill gas power generation, biogas power generation new energy power generation projects such as benchmark price, the provincial (district, municipal) prices Department determined to continue to implement national benchmark prices or according to local conditions and research development of benchmark price. The new benchmark price of energy projects at a local coal benchmark price (including desulfurization, denitrification, dust plus 1 cent/kWh electricity price of ultra low emission charges) within part of the settlement by the local provincial power grid; high part of the sale price by the province to be leading.

Benchmark price adjust within acceptable range

Recently, the PV market showed a significant drop in demand, which led to the PV competition in tender prices. On September 22, leader of baotou tender, nsesi and Huadian 0.52 Yuan/w shocking low prices.

Perhaps related to this, the draft points out that this time, established around the State encourages competition in the market, such as through public bidding onshore wind power, offshore wind energy, photovoltaic and other owners of new energy projects and subsidies, but through market competition means shall not be higher than the price of similar Ziyuan District National onshore wind power, offshore wind energy, photovoltaic power generation benchmark price.

Among them, through public bidding, market competition determine prices, new benchmark coal price on the ground (including desulfurization, denitrification, dust plus 1 cent/kWh electricity price of ultra low emission charges) within part of the settlement by the local provincial power grid; higher in part by the national renewable energy development fund to be subsidized.

A PV industry told reporters that “the price cut is a bit drastic. But as long as the promise not to abandon power, subsidies timely release, still is within the acceptable range of enterprises. ”

But some market experts think that this cut, made of PV industry strong strong. “Those who rely on ‘ intermediaries ‘ contractors could survive less and less space for survival. Those strong, from component technology to power station technology has advantages of large enterprises, will seize the initiative. ”
