Polaris solar PV net news: national development and Reform Commission recently issued on the adjusted PV new benchmark onshore wind power notice (hereinafter “the notice”), clearly lower resource area PV power plants, onshore wind energy benchmark price. 2017 PV benchmark price than draft, distributed photovoltaic subsidy standard benchmarks on and offshore wind electricity prices are not adjusted.
According to notification, January 1, 2017 zhihou, a to three class resources District new PV power station of benchmark Internet electric price respectively adjustment for each kWh 0.65 Yuan, and 0.75 Yuan, and 0.85 Yuan, than 2016 electric price each kWh cut 0.15 Yuan, and 0.13 Yuan, and 0.13 Yuan, but more initially of sought views draft proposed of each kWh 0.55 Yuan, and 0.65 Yuan, and 0.75 Yuan, standard slightly has improve. Tibet Autonomous Region, benchmark price is 1.05 Yuan/kWh photovoltaic power station. After January 1, 2017, included in the annual financial subsidies management scale photovoltaic projects, implementation of new benchmark 2017 PV price. Before 2017 for the record and included in prior years financial subsidies scale PV legal project management, but has not yet put into operation before June 30, 2017, implementation of the 2017 benchmark price. Future solar benchmark price based on cost variation adjustment once a year.
After January 1, 2018, one to four categories of resources approved new construction of onshore wind power benchmark prices adjusted for each kWh 0.40 Yuan, 0.45 and 0.49 Yuan, 0.57 Yuan, electricity price per kilowatt hour than 2016-2017 by 7 points, 5 points, 5 points, 3 points.
To continue to encourage distributed PV and wind power development at sea, distributed photovoltaic subsidy standard benchmark price does not adjust on and offshore wind. Meanwhile, greater play to the role of market price formation, around the circular encouraged continued through bidding competition to determine all kinds of new energy sources such as project owners and price.
Appropriate cut solar power plants and wind turbine on land benchmark price, will help reduce the energy subsidy funding pressures. According to the photovoltaic, wind speed measurement, 2017 new benchmark PV prices decline, the demand will reduce PV subsidies each year some 4.5 billion yuan 2018 onshore wind power prices are also lower, will reduce the demand for onshore wind power subsidies each year about 1.5 billion yuan, total demand for reduced subsidies each year some 6 billion yuan.
PV enterprises said in an interview with reporters, finally announced the benchmark price was slightly better-than-expected, that also is seeking the views of business. 2017 by nodes continue to June 30 as the boundary means that PV installing will be more prominent in the first half of next year, demand will be slowing in the second half, upstream industry will face greater pressure. Not much compared with this year is expected to drop in demand all year round.
These people also believe that the PV project tendering and bidding this year and next year as fierce, then in most parts of the actual electricity prices will be significantly lower than the benchmark price. However, the benchmark price is slightly higher than expected, bidding eased the pressure.
Last week, the National Energy Board issued a story titled on photovoltaic power generation by 2016 years: notice of construction-related issues requiring provincial (district, municipal) reporting indicators added to 2016 PV demand, additional demand in the province (district, municipal) 2017 years earlier construction. Researchers believe the new energy industry, PV subsidies reduced circumstances next year, authorities allowed the provinces (regions and municipalities) PV target “deficit spending”, but also helps reduce the burden on enterprises.
