Shandong electric Spring Festival peak now abandoned solar PV installed capacity

Polaris solar PV net news: Shandong province in recent days by the Commission and the State Energy administration supervision Office of the Shandong provincial electric power dispatching control center issued on 2017 new energy peak of the Spring Festival notice will be based on the “first abandoned after the wind up” principle of adjustment of various photovoltaic power plant operation to ensure safe operation of power grids.

It is reported that due to electricity consumption will fall dramatically during the Spring Festival, the absorptive capacity of the network for new energy will decline, too high a proportion of new energy can affect the safe operation of power grids, which requires regulation. Previously, the province only had “abandoned the wind” experience, according to the notice during the Spring Festival in 2017 photovoltaic, wind turbine must have a certain degree of outage.

It is understood that the power authority according to different time periods, photovoltaic and wind to make a different request. Among them, from January 27 to February 2, PV power plant outage peak from January 20 to January 26 and February 3 to February 11, according to “abandon the wind and dumped” notice around the principle of photovoltaic power station.

Analysts believe, because policies encourage the PV industry, coupled with better lighting conditions in our province, from 2015, Shandong has become the focus of PV power plant investors nuggets provinces. Under the background of installing surge, photovoltaic power plant, Shandong province, increased installed 2016 only 20.3 million kW of PV power in the province during the Spring Festival, but in 2017 solar output has reached 2 million-kilowatt.

Solar energy industries Association, Shandong province, Shandong province, has recently released the solar “Thirteen-Five” development plan, Shandong PV installed capacity by 2020 of 10GW, annual growth 1.8GW. According to the medium and long-term development plan on energy, Shandong province, by 2030, the province PV 25 million-kilowatt, PV power station 17 million-kilowatt, distributed PV 8 million-kilowatt.

See how Google play with renewable energy

Polaris solar PV net news: at present, the international community to ensure energy security, environmental protection and the importance of addressing climate change is increasing, speed up the development and utilization of renewable sources of energy have become the general consensus and concerted action of all countries in the world, people in the industry assert that belongs to renewable energy “protagonists” and “Paris era” has come to.

That is why, in recent years a growing number of well-known enterprises in integrating climate change into an important business decision. If Google is any reference material, compared to other new energy transformation process, it is not difficult to find, the company seems to see farther.


Energy consumption in 2015 Google a company comparable to San Francisco

Recent environmental groups-Greenpeace (Greenpeace) released an assessment report on the United States, and Korea amounted to 15 technology companies and China’s energy usage assessment ranking, Google, APPLE and Facebook have come into a small number of a-class. Not only that, but Google also recently said, is redoubling its efforts to buy enough renewable energy to cover the company’s global electricity consumption this year.

It is learnt that in 2015 alone Google energy comparable to the entire cost of a company by San Francisco. Google expects its purchases of wind and solar power would be enough to supply in 2017, global data center and Office of the electricity consumption.

However this does not mean that Google apart from wind and solar energy does not consume any energy. And like other companies, Google also gets energy from the energy company, while energy companies have supported energy network by several energy, including electricity, natural gas, coal and wind.

“We are the world’s largest renewable energy purchase enterprises. For economy, business and our shareholders, this is a good thing. Different from conventional fossil fuels, wind energy supply price fluctuations, which allows Google to better make a plan. In addition, Google purchased renewable energy more access to lower the price of energy. “Google Senior Vice President Joe ˙ kava, said at present renewable energy in many countries, establishing a competitive mainstream energy status. Now in more than 30 countries, solar energy, wind energy and fossil fuel prices are the same or cheaper. A few days ago, Chile every year starting in 2021 12.4 billion-kilowatt power requirement when tendering bids, SunEdison photovoltaic company reported 2.91 cents per kWh global PV lowest in history, to win some of the power supply section.

In the view of the industry, whether Google is the largest buyer of renewable energy is difficult to prove, because a lot of the information industry in terms of energy consumption is not transparent. However, there is no doubt that large computers of Google and Amazon, similar to Microsoft’s global business, is the world’s fastest-growing new power of consumables.


And renewable energy enterprise collaboration never stops

In recent years, cooperation between Google and renewable-energy companies have never ceased, the company hopes to cooperate with large wind farm successfully. Such as Oklahoma Minko, covering 50,000 acres of wind-power facilities in Pryor, Oklahoma Google large data center energy supply. Google Denmark wind turbine manufacturer VestasWindSystems buy Kenya 12.5% stake in the Lake Turkana wind power project. In addition, NextEra energy company with wind farms, in the United States and Canada has about 115 farm, also in cooperation with Google.

In the United States about 25% of power for commercial trade, companies like Google took the 2%. Damingwei Power Corporation (DominionVirginiaPower) is located in is probably the world’s most centralized State data center. Dominion data show that last year, customer demand for increased 9%, while the total demand is flat with the year before.

Google search for new energy, much more than this. In 2007, Google wave-powered data center idea, which was unprecedented at the time. While not fantastic, also has tried to get geothermal or use large kites flying in the stratosphere to capture high speed wind programme, but so far without any results. But this was made on the Google data center energy efficiency proud.

Critics point out that, when Google is possible in the world energy network into wind and solar when these two new elements, still dependent on fossil fuels, intermittent solar and wind power, after all, is not stable.

Energy Association for the study of communication, Vice President Chris ˙ Warren said: “in my opinion, this is a PR stunt. If they think that we can really rely entirely on wind energy and solar panels, they should be connected directly to these facilities on their data centers. “Noteworthy is that this plays an Association for the study of the role of think tanks in Washington, to a large extent by the fossil fuel industry’s personal and corporate funding.

In this regard, slips, Google not only 95% goal this year will be realized by virtue of its global fan, and support for the wind power industry will help wind energy prices continue to fall, especially compared with fossil energy such as coal, that advantage will be more obvious.

Google currently operates eight businesses, including Google, the Internet search engine, YouTube video site and mailboxes. Each of these business customers who have more than 1 billion. These all have 13 on the global network of huge data centres run, each of which is composed of many buildings of the complex, covering hundreds of thousands of computers. Stanford University, Earth, energy and environmental science lecturer Jonathan ˙ Coumet says Google in 2015, 5.7 TWh of electricity consumption by the equivalent of two 500-megawatt coal-fired power plant’s annual output, which is enough for two 1.4 million of the population of the Township.

Rooftop PV scale remains a bottleneck

Arctic star solar PV network news: last year December National Energy Council in released of solar development “Thirteen-Five” Planning (following referred to planning) in the proposed, vigorously advance roof distributed PV power, continues to carried out distributed PV power application model district construction, to 2020 built 100 a distributed PV application model district, Park within 80% of new building roof, and 50% of has has building roof installation PV power. Obviously, distributed PV roof will become an important direction of future photovoltaic development.

Deputy Director of the Gansu Provincial Academy of Sciences ‘ Institute of natural resources of Li Shimin, told reporters, “Thirteen-Five”, during the series of policies and measures under the roof, distributed PV will have a certain size, but rooftop PV constraints encountered problems during the promotion process, the future in order to achieve large-scale application also has some difficulty.


Looking for a quality roof is a resource problem

Data shows that by the end of 2015, 43.18 million-kilowatt PV cumulative installed capacity in China, of which, distributed PV cumulative installed capacity 6.06 million-kilowatt. As can be seen, distributed PV in our country at present is small, distributed power more smaller roof. There is an important reason is that the architecture for distributed PV roof is hard to find.

It is understood that directly determines the area of the roof the roof the distributed capacity of PV power projects, is the most basic elements of roofing design life determine the use of PV power plant life. Therefore, rooftop PV roofing quality requirements are relatively high. This means that in China’s vast rural areas, high quality suitable for building rooftop PV roof is not much.

Jiangsu haian County State grid power Corporation Deputy General Manager Zhang Shengjian told reporters, although better residential roof-top structures, suitable for building rooftop PV, but residential construction requires public roof rooftop PV, unclear property rights, subject to the approval of other residents and even the consent of owners ‘ committees or neighborhood committees, coordination is difficult. This became an important factor in restricting the construction of urban domestic photovoltaic power stations.

Based on above reasons, planning proposed: in has development conditions of industrial park, and economic zone, and large industrial and mining enterprises and Mall school hospital, public building, unified planning and organization implementation roof PV engineering; in solar resources excellent, and grid access elimination na conditions good of rural area and small town, advance residents roof PV engineering, combined new town of construction, and old town transformation, and new rural construction, and easily relocation, unified planning construction roof PV engineering, formed several PV small town, and PV village.

“The current PV on the roof construction, there is a problem, roofed enterprises can’t find the PV developers, photovoltaic roof of developers may not find useful. In the ‘ Thirteen-Five ‘ during the rooftop PV to be widely used, Member States must increase the policy support and actively encourage government organs, enterprises and institutions take the lead in building photovoltaic roofs. “Li Shimin, told reporters that” the Government guidance and market operation, unified management “, highlighted the guiding role of Government construction of rooftop PV” jiaxing mode “worthy of reference elsewhere.

Bottleneck II

Question of investment costs

Although the State issued a related support policies, power supply enterprise’s service process is very clear, but rooftop PV development speed is not fast, one of the major reasons is the rooftop PV on-grid price above today’s electricity prices, installing rooftop photovoltaic equipment and maintenance is expensive. This led some companies and individuals willing to invest into its rooftop PV.

“Before the roof is not installed, I cycle power plant back to calculations are too optimistic. However, when I check out the national development and Reform Commission concerning the role of price leverage to promote the healthy development of the photovoltaic industry notice found 0.42 Yuan to contain a 17% value added tax only, the actual subsidy levels only 0.359 Yuan per kilowatt hour. What’s more, PV module life of 25 years, State subsidies only 20, the last 5 years there is no subsidy, incomes will be reduced. “Anhui rooftop PV user who declined to be named, admitted to reporters, as living standards improve, household electricity consumption will unrelenting reality, profitability of PV power station have been built and there will be no significant enhancements, will further erode the revenue from electricity sales income; if you didn’t install fully take into account these individuals may not build rooftop PV.

Xinhua also learned that in recent years, coal prices remain low also pulled down the benchmark price, price of power grid enterprises is not high. Actual profitability is limited, most grid-connected PV power plant of the family real 6-8 than previously calculated during the cycle has been extended for about 3 years.

Li Shimin considered, to advance the development of rooftop PV, national roof, distributed PV generation rules should be further developed, efforts to increase subsidies, and financial institutions should also be related to funding policies, innovation and investment model, through the State-funded, business investment and the participation of social capital in the form of attracting individuals, photovoltaic and photovoltaic electricity enterprise companies to join the roof construction.

Bottleneck for three

Incorporation difficult problems remain

According to the reporter, now in Western backward areas, whether individual or grid-connected PV roof of the power station remains difficult questions. This is due to network infrastructure in these areas is relatively backward, existing power grids and facilities cannot meet the roof PV demand coupled with the roof of distributed PV standards are not unified, PV power is intermittent, instability and other defects and uneven quality of power generation, power generation and other causes.

One thing to point out is, residents of spontaneous use of distributed PV generation are not completely independent of the roof system shall be connected to the public power grid, if there is no public grid support, distributed systems cannot guarantee that users of electricity reliability and quality of electricity as well as create economic benefits. If incorporation difficult questions is bound to affect PV roof of distributed PV initiative and personal development.

In the eastern regions of the country, as the relatively complete grid infrastructure, grid-connected problem of relatively fewer, rooftop PV has developed rapidly. It is understood that the roof of distributed PV installed capacity larger cities across the country, at the end of last August, grid-connected distributed PV project in jiaxing 2,521, 814,000 kW grid-connected capacity, grid-connected capacity is 94.04% per cent acceptance capacity. Jiaxing in the context of rooftop PV at present good practices worthy of recognition.

It is understood that to crack the distributed PV to and guarantee safe operation of power grids, jiashan County, jiaxing city, State grid power company active in the research, after a year of exploration, developed the first set of integration of distributed PV grid-connected interface devices. Integration of distributed PV grid-connected interface devices in jiaxing, Wenzhou, Quzhou, and Jiujiang, Jiangxi, application, received high praise, not only saves the cost of distributed PV investment, shorten the time of distributed PV, and improving the economic benefit of distributed PV, has great application value in the country.

Li Shi-min told reporters that, to solve the difficult problem of rooftop PV grid-connected, first of all, countries must accelerate the alteration of power NET in backward areas, power supply capacity and upgrading rural power network reliability, power companies not only to reduce the roof PV procedures, but also to carry out technological innovation effect of rooftop photovoltaic grid-connected power.

Germany how to deal with renewable energy abandoned electrical problem

Polaris solar PV NET: State grid Energy Research Institute, according to a report published recently, with the development of renewable energies, Germany began facing renewable energy abandoned electrical problems. Germany abandoned to what extent and how to solve the problem?

Renewable energy abandoned electrical problem

Some areas abandoned wind rate of 8%

Germany is a worldwide model for grid-connected renewable energy development and operation. Since 2000, Germany can gradually increase the proportion of renewable energy in the power structure, Germany grid security, electricity market operation has brought a series of technical and economic challenges.

Under EU law, in grid security context, Germany renewable energies priority access rights. However, some time to ensure safe operation of power grids, not all include wind power, photovoltaic power supply has the right of access can be accepted in full. So when threats to network security, renewable energy up is inevitable.

Renewable energy leave Germany the Federal Network Council to supervise. Germany 2015 network monitoring report released by the Federal Network Agency show 2014 Germany renewable abandon rate of 1.16%, to create a historical record, this value is still at a low level, but the 0.44% has been raised 3 times than in 2013 and 2009 value of only 0.1%. Consistent with other countries, Germany abandoned turbine is a wind turbine, followed by solar power, biomass power generation, etc.

Germany renewable abandoned the main cause of electric power supply and load distribution of inconsistency. In Germany, wind power mainly in the relatively sparsely populated northern and Eastern regions, while Germany electrical load centers are located in the more densely populated southern regions. Germany Alex Braun Institute of Hove disclosed that Germany Northern abandoned the wind and more serious, has abandoned wind rate in some areas is as high as 8%. Germany renewable up mainly in the distribution network. In 2012, Germany renewable abandoned 98% in distribution networks, only 2% took place in the grid. Difference in degrees around the abandoned, are likely to be limited to the generation of 60% and 30%, even 100% the complete abandon.

Germany provisions of the renewable energy law, renewable energy abandoned will be compensated by the distribution network operator and the transmission network operator. In 2014, Germany renewable energy loss caused by the abandon of 82.7 million euros. For renewable energy to abandon compensation, Germany asked for at least abandoned power in 95%.

Grid focus with three aspects of work

Response to renewable up electricity, Germany carried out extensive exploration. Among them, in power, Germany did a lot of work.

First, optimizing network planning, operations and construction, an active power to dissolve. In solution can renewable energy power and power load distribution inconsistent problem Shang, Germany provides 4 Home transmission operators should common consultations and bear Germany grid future 10-20 years of optimization run and network expansion work; power and load distribution differences larger, and local elimination na more difficult of area, need expansion long transmission lines road; promoted distribution grid of intelligent optimization upgrade transformation, to promote can renewable energy local elimination na; application most advanced technology, guarantees can renewable energy mass access Shi, Without a substantial increase in power grid investments.

Second, the left margin extra in the planning process, greatly lowering the cost of power to dissolve renewable energy generation. Germany Federal Department of Economic Affairs and energy issued by adapt Germany energy transition of the electricity market white paper and Germany relevant laws, provisions can remain in power system planning and design takes 3% to abandon power, consider renewable energy to abandon 3% because the required power to dissolve “the last 1-kilowatt of electricity” does not have the best economy. In the process of implementation, 3% passing, greatly reducing the cost of renewable energy power to dissolve, operating expansion enables the network to reduce costs and promote renewable energies to find a suitable balance between the absorptive. Research report noted that reduce power 40% 3% passing expanded investment, reduce the costs associated with distribution operations around 15% in the future.

Third, reduce reserve requirements for power, mining and the full potential the flexible adjustment of the system. Reduce the necessary to ensure the stability of the system of traditional backup capacity, look for other sources of flexibility resources, play a renewable energy and energy storage capacity to provide ancillary services, has become the Germany energy power industry professionals to discuss important issues.

Germany power network monitoring and dispatch technology progress, making dispatching personnel to finer time scales arranged schedule, calculating and configuring System standby, reducing power system reserve capacity requirements. Meanwhile, Germany is currently running with base load is still relatively high percentage of conventional power is considering phasing out nuclear power units.

According to Germany Agora Energiewende one study found that energy research institutions, abandoned not only renewable energy output exceeds demand, lack of flexibility of system resources has become an obstacle to Germany renewable energy to dissolve an important factor. These flexibilities include storage and demand-side management. Germany Government announced the results of a study show that strengthening of industrial, retail, commercial and residential electricity demand side management, making full use of electric, heat pump, boiler and hydrogen energy will be Germany network flexibility the main sources of resources.

Scientifically designed renewable power market to dissolve is significant

Germany’s success shows that the electricity market is established in Germany as well as Europe-wide flexible electricity wholesale markets, retail markets, and to improve system efficiency and renewable energy to dissolve was very important. In particular, the short-term market is crucial to optimize power generation. Germany’s experience are:

Ensure the free electricity market pricing mechanism. In electricity markets, electricity prices reflect the cost of electricity and plays a decisive role in resource allocation. In Germany 2.0 in electric market, continue to maintain free pricing mechanisms to strengthen price signals to market incentives.

The European single electricity market development under the environment of electricity market. Germany Federal Department of Economic Affairs and energy published the adaptation of Germany referred to in the white paper on energy transition of the electricity market, Germany will continue to be the European single electricity market development under the environment of electricity market. Europe’s power markets to some extent, to offset the volatility of renewable electricity, thus reducing overall system cost and improve operational efficiency. Power markets interconnected environment arising out of international trade will also improve the flexibility of supply.

Allow more electricity providers have entered the market. Germany allows balance and encourage more suppliers to enter the market and compete, thereby ensuring Germany high reliability and quality of electric energy supply and low price. Germany the Federal Network Agency also plans to start procedures to auction rules, so as to ensure that any new, flexible and reliable suppliers are able to compete in the market.

Clear accumulation flexible rules for power users. Germany plans to amend the relevant rules for grid access regulations in order to ensure flexible power users can participate in FM.

Assessment of minimum capacity. Germany the Federal Network Agency will also periodically to assess the thermal power station minimum technical effort, minimum technical effort minimize thermal power units in order to increase thermal power unit load capacity and publish assessment reports every two years. The first assessment report is expected to be released on March 31 this year.

Less than 1 MW photovoltaic power plant investment fell 28% per cent of the total US $40 billion. The investment decline was mainly due to cheaper systems, rather than distributed solar investment decreases.

BNEF estimates that solar photovoltaic projects built last year 70GW, 20% over the levels by 2015.

Following the upsurge of global PV installed capacity are running so high in the first half, China slowing sharply in the second half. BNEF also pointed out that the China-Japan faced power problems.

After years of investment, China and Japan are controlling the building of new large projects, turning to digest their projects has been put into production.

Chinese Government’s current focus on investment power and reform of the electricity market, renewable energy reach its full potential. In Japan, future growth will not come from utility-scale projects, but from consumers to install rooftop solar systems, this system is more and more attracted by the benefit of self consumption of the economy.

Solar industry faces problems not confined to Asia. BNEF also noted that many developing countries in the year 2016 are cut clean energy investments, because many projects to obtain financing by the end of the auction. (Compiled/Tina)

More complementary solution disposable light wind up new tricks

Polaris solar PV net news: How can complement national energy Board resolved to abandon the wind, abandoning the new trick of light. Struggling with problems such as lack of standards, lack of experience, however, is still difficult to scale.

In recent years, large-scale development in photovoltaic, wind up at the same time, accumulate a serious problem of absorptive. Although the scenery is clean, renewable, on the one hand because of the intermittent is not welcomed by the grid, on the three northern regions, large-scale construction has gone far beyond local absorptive capacity and underdeveloped delivery channels, abandoned wind up in serious condition.

Complementarity is a complementarity between the use of energy to maximize the efficiency of energy use, through scenery of instability, such as renewable energy and fire stability of traditional sources of energy, such as the combination of complementary energy storage is an important part, of course, but energy can play a role at this stage is still limited.

On July 4, 2016, the national development and Reform Commission, the National Energy Board issued jointly on promoting the complementary implementation of integrated optimization model construction (hereinafter the views). Views display, the “Thirteen-Five” period, will build a State-level Terminal integration for demonstration projects of more than 20, national demonstration project of landscape water storage can complement more than 3.

However, complementary can play a big role? Especially in the abandoned light wind up three northern regions and abandoned water in Sichuan-Yunnan region, can complement each other and how positions? As many of the user terminal can complement each other and how much sense does it? Complementary seems to have faced a great deal of controversy in the first.

Qinghai mode

On December 6, the total investment of 6.37 billion yuan haixiduo complementary optimization demonstration projects (phase I) settled in Golmud. Photovoltaic power generation project construction projects 200,000-kilowatt, 400,000-kilowatt wind power project, solar-thermal power projects 50,000-kilowatt, 50,000-kilowatt battery energy storage power station.

From the form of energy, is the integration of renewable energy and energy storage, and add up to very large, for large energy base has a certain model of complementarity.

On more can complementary, National Energy Council Planning Division planning Director Liu Jianping pointed out that has points standard, “more can” is refers to two species above of energy, which at least contains a can renewable energy, energy type more more more good; “integrated optimization” is refers to model project from the surface Shang reflected integrated optimization, to improve energy using efficiency, reduced abandoned wind, and abandoned light, and abandoned water phenomenon; project of model sex, can up to industry of led role; project of timely sex: project as soon as possible led investment, as soon as possible construction, and completed, and run, eight items standard.

However, in large energy bases, complementary can really address the so-called memory problems? It would be difficult. Reporters interviewed a number of renewable energy experts, in relation to this issue, are said to rely on complementary abandoned air, light, water and other discards problems of energy waste is not realistic.

It is also because local absorptive small space. In the three northern regions and the Southwest, local loads are small, even complementary to enhance efficiency, changing ways, like wind hydrogen, heat and other way to increase the load, is utterly inadequate for the scenery of huge volumes of water.

Not only the haixiduo complementary projects, longyang Gorge in Qinghai province water light complementary projects have been very interesting. On December 30, 2014, longyangxia Yellow River Company (capacity 1.28 million-kilowatt) 850,000-kilowatt water and complementary 530,000-kilowatt grid-connected photovoltaic grid-connected electricity generation project success so far of longyangxia water light complementary project has been running for nearly two years the time.

“Hydropower capacity is large, the day, and can be done completely dominated by light, adjust to electricity, PV can create scheduling needs of the power curve, when there is no light at night can be prone to water and electricity. Such circumstances can be completely abandoned, and transmission line of electricity on the basis of the original, without modification, you can increase utilization. “China renewable energy society Vice Chairman Xu Honghua told the journal energy reporter. “So called complementary role is to optimize and unified scheduling. But now few, few, many of which are institutional problems. ”

It is understood that the PV power station and hydropower station and a power through hydroelectric power station sent out, improves the utilization and economy of sent lines, sending line annual utilization hours of longyangxia hydropower station by 4,621 hour rise to 5,019 hours. Say longyangxia water and complementary access to good effect was in power sent to the Foundation, if the channel is not completed, longyangxia water light complement all will vanish.

More complementary solution disposable light wind up new tricks?

Chinese statistics show Qinghai electric power to the national grid company, as of October 31, 2016, Qinghai electric power total installed capacity of 23.3 million-kilowatt, photovoltaic (solar thermal) grid-connected capacity 6.78 million-kilowatt, one-third per cent of the province’s total installed power capacity, Qinghai solar PV power generation up to 25.352 billion kWh. But hardly abandoned the wind in Qinghai province have been abandoned, renewable energy delivery pressure is very low.

Abandoned, abandoning the wind light and water, no matter what is attributed to, in order to completely address would still be pinning their hopes on the delivery channel built as soon as possible, with complementary can only play a role in optimization. In other words, at this stage, rather than in energy resource base far from load Center introduced a number of complementary, end user introduced a number of complementary not a multiplier?

Distributed energy questions

From large bases to end users, energy forms naturally toward the direction of distributed development, but whether it is in coal, natural gas, or solar, wind power and other renewable energy, distributed can be said to have their difficulties, can complement has a bright future, but subject to various constraints, now there is no competitiveness.

Xu Honghua pointed out that although the condition of each individual technology use of distributed energy, but can complement, or is a combination of combined cooling, heating and power, there is no success story, how can complementarity is not a simple energy added several. In other words, technically there is still a lot of work to do, due to the distributed nature and technical solutions need to be adapted to local conditions and a variety of technology needs for energy integration, now there is no replicable technology.

Chief expert of the State grid Energy Research Institute, Feng Qingdong also told reporters: “there are still issues with complementary technologies, gas turbines or combined cooling, heating and power complement each other very small space, adjustability is bad. ”

In addition, on distributed energy policies in place now are directional and tendency, economic incentives and no project has not economy of operation, it is possible in the demonstration phase, but large-scale promotion no economy is not acceptable. Many advantages can complement each other in the collection of a variety of energy at the same time, can achieve real integration in the economy are more important in the long run.

From research and practice, user terminal can complement most involving natural gas, electricity, heating, cooling and other fields, and policies in these areas can be said to be hampered by continuous, difficult to reconcile. Moreover, both the “spontaneous, for personal use, more than power” or “full Internet”, due to the lack of grid design standards, technical guidance and acceptance, also encountered a great deal of difficulty in grid-connected.

Renewable energy, distributed PV has become the next outlet, but subsidies decline, caused by subsidies in arrears policy problems and not solving, which will provide huge risks which may trigger more complementary.

More complementary solution disposable light wind up new tricks?

Views clearly by 2020, the provincial (district, municipal) by Terminal integration of new industrial park reached 50% per cent of the energy supply system, both implementation of comprehensive energy cascading utilization ratio of transformation of the industrial park reach 30%. So, whatever the area of any of the events, can be adapted to local conditions, can have economy and promotion of properties? These also require a validation process.

Views in publishing for more than a month later, on August 11, 2016 held in Qinhuangdao, China Internet Conference on energy, national energy planning, Planning Division Director Liu Jianping said local declarations are now received multiple complementary integrated optimization model of construction projects has more than 500. But with Internet + wise energy pilot project all provinces (cities, districts) number no more than 5 different, this complementary projects to the local declaration did not set the number limit.

For the selection and approval of the project, according to Xu Honghua introduction, led by the Chinese Academy of Sciences to carry out complementary research on mechanism and application of policies, large-scale energy complex, rural towns, city, island, construction of the industrial park in different forms, determining the scope, principles and typical application cases, promote disorder, technical guide.

It is understood that energy development Bureau in Inner Mongolia autonomous region in late September of 14 eligible for national declarations are complementary optimization demonstration projects reported to the National Energy Board.

As of early December, planning and construction of 950,000-kilowatt wind power, photovoltaic, 100,000-kilowatt storage power, 2×35 kilowatt cogeneration units, accessory building 220,000-volt transmission line and heating network of Jah Nur complementary optimization demonstration projects have been found by the National Energy Board review, included in one of the two verification project in Inner Mongolia.

On December 26, the National Energy Board of the first complementary optimization pilot project results were published. Integrated energy supply system for Terminal 17, involving Shaanxi, Inner Mongolia, Hebei, Jiangsu, 11 provinces and autonomous regions, wind and hydro energy storage can complement system 6, Inner Mongolia autonomous region, 1 of which, in addition to projects in haixi Prefecture, Qinghai province, Hainan Prefecture, there is a, one each in Shanxi, Hebei, Sichuan.

Energy development will be more and more towards integration in the future, judging from the present energy mix, whether it is new or stock power, set the maximum degree of integration and optimization, maximize energy role. But it is clear that in terms of policy, technology, and economic, national and enterprises have to do a lot of work.

Total 2016 solar financing declined by 64

Polaris solar PV net news: Mercom Capital2016 solar financing and mergers and acquisitions reported in 2016, the global solar industry is full of contradictions: a new global increase in installed capacity of about 50% to about 76 gigawatts, is the highest growth rate since 2011. Meanwhile, solar stocks and solar industry financing collapsed.

Mercom calculations, PV 64% in 2016 dropped the total corporate financing, to $9.1 billion, is the lowest level since 2013. Including public market financing similar declines, with 27 transactions, compared with $1.8 billion in 2015 for $6 billion. Three of the industry’s initial public offering (IPO), two of which are developers in Asia–Thailand BCPG (subsidiary of Bangchak petroleum company) and India’s AzurePower.

Mercom Chief Executive RajPrabhu told pvmagazine: “China’s sharp drop in component prices, United States slowdown in rooftop solar, competitive auction, net metering uncertainty, high debt levels and insufficient profits is the solar supply chain a year full of challenges. In 2017, however, looks better than expected, because of falling component prices are expected to increase the level. ”

However, despite the collapse in the overall funding and public markets, but in that year, some sectors with relatively little damage. Mercom pointed out that 11 reports of risk capital transactions raise $1.25 billion in revenue, this is generally in line with the past two years than in 2013 has been significantly improved.

As in past years, this proportion came mostly from solar energy and raw materials companies, Sunnova and Mosaic maximum financing amount is $300 million and $220 million.

As distributed solar, residential and commercial projects Fund of sign of popularity, only slightly dropped to 3.9 billion dollars, in the 30 funds. Mercom estimates, since 2009, in the residential and commercial and industrial (C&I) offer third party financing and loans in the field of solar energy companies have raised more than $22.5 billion

These top-line numbers may have masked other changes in distributed solar market. Mercom revealed that in 2016, and the last three quarters, total value of 47%, which supports a GTMResearch statement, third-party solar is disappearing, according to EnergySage, they work most of the Setup is a cash sale, 3/4 not even rent or power purchase agreements.

Prabhu said: “now, consumers now have access to better loan and leasing process easy. Unless the company provides rental can come up with better deals shift must be loans. ”

Large project financing also dropped only slightly to $9.4 billion, roughly the same number of utility-scale solar project changed hands: 218 total size of 12.2 gigawatts.

Mercom reported 2016 year 68 companies in mergers and acquisitions, compared to 81 last year. One of the biggest is Tesla’s $2.1 billion acquisition of SolarCity.

Photovoltaic trends brewing the Middle rally is expected to be years after

Polaris solar PV net news: Lunar New Year holiday is approaching, prices gradually stabilizing the overall supply chain. Most holidays in China remains fully operational, but part of polycrystalline silicon wafer plant, Taiwan battery factory low price, choose to leave during output EnergyTrend expected new year’s shortages of silicon wafers, cells may appear slightly, and prices started rising.

Despite an industry-wide production capacity of polysilicon prices after that February will be paid out and begin to weakens, China polysilicon premium remain at about RMB140/kg, part of lots were sold and even upgraded to RMB142~143/kg. China installed surge in domestic demand remains concentrated in the first half of expected short-term polysilicon prices will stabilize at a high level, also let non-China poly silicon grade held steady at US$14~15.5/kg.

Polycrystalline silicon wafer prices have held steady at about RMB5~5.05/pc, and US$0.63~0.64/pc, January orders all settled, the Lunar stock requirements, and some of the effects of silicon chip factory new production, there could be slight shortage of high performance polycrystalline silicon chips have started to rally. Silicon shortages still no sign of settling in the first quarter, polycrystalline silicon chips started to rise, will narrow the spreads of polycrystalline and monocrystalline silicon wafer, made without provision for shortage of Silicon in the short term.

Single and multi crystalline solar cell prices this week has seen steady, polycrystalline 18.4% prices RMB1.7~1.73/W, US$0.21~0.215/W, maintain regular single crystal at US$0.24/W, and were sold mostly below the US$0.3/W a single PERC. Since prices bottomed out, the battery component plant started to increase purchases, monocrystalline cell shortage again, local multi crystalline cells, it is difficult to buy, it is expected that after the lunar new year, polycrystalline and monocrystalline cell prices are expected to rebound immediately, estimates the fastest response will occur in early February. Crystal PERC because profits are somewhat high, and conventional battery price difference is too large, prices remained weak. If conventional battery up, Crystal PERC also is expected to be steady.

Rally in the Middle though eyeing component is still too much capacity no sign, in addition to strong demand outside China, all component prices has weakened. Falling component prices may make limited gains in middle of this year, strong gains may not last.

2016 wind energy solar energy resources China Times publication in the official

Polaris solar PV net news: January 7, China Meteorological Administration, China wind energy solar energy resources Center for 2016 year Bulletin of wind and solar resources. Bulletin points out that in 2016 as the national average wind speed of 10 meters height normal with slightly bigger times, years terrestrial surface average surface radiation exposure and best slightly smaller beveled normal radiation radiation year year. Cold waves and strong cold air just slightly more frequency is the main reason behind national average wind speed slightly; the national average number of rainy days than usual about 6.1% is the high amount of solar radiation reaching the surface to reduce one of the reasons.

“Look at the 2016 wind and solar resources compared with the first 10 years of change and its spatial distribution, can be used as wind and solar power plants objective evaluation of the 2016 generation production base. “Wind and solar resources, said Shen Yanbo, Vice Director of the Center.

Wind and solar Resource Center, national meteorological station 2004-2016 surface observational data, statistical analysis in China in 2016 10 m height wind speeds on land features, come in 2016, the national annual average wind speed is 10 meters above the ground height nearly 10 years (2004-2013) are large value 0.68%, which is the normal slightly bigger times, but uneven distribution of regional differences. Most of the provinces (autonomous regions and municipalities) winds near year-round average, Shanghai, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Shandong and Hainan in 5 provinces (municipalities) annual average wind speed is small 5%, Ningxia, Chongqing, Heilongjiang is larger 5%.

It is learnt that, in 2016, most of the provinces (autonomous regions and municipalities) land 70 meters height the average annual wind speed is close to the average annual value, smaller areas are Shanghai, Jiangsu, Shandong, Hainan 4 provinces (municipalities), large areas are Chongqing, Guangxi, Shanxi, Heilongjiang, Sichuan, Shaanxi, Hubei, 7 provinces (autonomous regions and municipalities).

2015 and 2016 compared to annual average wind speed in addition to Hainan, Tibet and its mean annual wind power density is slightly reduced and other provinces (autonomous regions, municipalities) have varying degrees of increase in national land 70 metres high mean annual wind power density of more than 150 Watts/square meter area, 65% area is larger than the perennial, 35% area is smaller than the perennial.

Meanwhile, wind and solar resource centre 2004-2016 of the yearly national meteorological station radiation and daylight observations, assessment: in 2016, the national level of terrestrial surface average total annual radiation of 1478.2 millions of kWh/m, than in the last 10 years (2004-2013) less average 22.5 kilowatt hours per square metre, relatively low 1.5%, and 2015. Regional solar energy resources are quite different, on the whole, less rain and dry plateau region, Plains, rain and high humidity areas of small features.

“2016 effect of cold air 15 times, 5 times less than the average, cold waves and strong cold air is 2.5 times more than the average, North of the Huai River region more cold air cold and 1.7 times, South of the Huai River region more cold air cold and 0.8 times, China’s average wind speed is slightly larger. “Shen Yanbo said.

India PV installed capacity broken 9GW 2017 compared with up to 90

Polaris solar PV net news: India Ministry of new and renewable sources of energy (NMRE), solar installations in the country at the end of 2016 over 9GW; in addition, the Agency forecast India solar energy demand growth is expected from 2016 2017 year as much as 90%.

NMRE issued until December 31, 2016 solar energy capacity statistics, the national installed capacity up to 9,012MW, official exceeded 9GW mark; by 2016 at the end of the fiscal year (March 31, 2017), is expected to grow to about 12GW. However, NMRE said, the installed capacity of the first nine months of fiscal year 2016 only 2,250MW, in other words, fiscal 2016 installed capacity will come to 5,250MW for the full year, 3GW of which will be completed in the last three months.

Installed capacity more than 500MW of area are: tanmiernadubang (1,591MW), Rajasthan (1,318MW), Gujarat (1,159MW), Andhra Pradesh (980MW), telungannabang (973MW), Madhya Pradesh (840MW), Punjab (545MW).

2017 growth period

India currently has about 14GW of large-scale solar power plants for the record. Research Unit BridgetoIndia think, 7.7GW is expected to be completed in 2017 of operation; plus 1.1GW rooftop solar systems, overall demand for 8.8GW years, than in 2016 to grow as much as 90%. Roof system will also reflect the 75% of growth.

In addition, 8.8GW the installed capacity will make India beyond the demand weakness in Japan, China and the United States after the country’s third-largest solar demand.

India Solar subsidies are expected to be adjusted down to below 4.00 India rupees (about 0.06 US dollars), thus also became India’s most expensive new sources of energy.

According to EnergyTrend statistics, India in fiscal year 2016 installed capacity is expected to reach 5.2GW,2016 by the end of fiscal cumulative installed capacity will exceed 8GW. Fiscal year 2017 needs are expected to exceed 8GW, also appears more than 60% growth.

Solar energy could become the most economical source of electricity

Polaris solar PV net news: with the advancement of technology, solar power in many parts of the world are becoming more and more economic. Bloomberg recently wrote that solar power is expected in 10 years is expected to surpass coal-fired power, as the world’s lowest-cost power generation option.

Comprehensive data for 2016, solar power in many countries in the world to break the historical rates record, about half the average cost of coal-fired power. Among them, Chile in solar electricity auction in August, 2.91 cents/kWh for a low price in September, U.A.E. took an 2.42 cents/kWh lowest price.

According to Bloomberg, now, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Mexico have begun to plan this year’s solar power bid, and hopes to further reduce the price. Others include Italy Enel and Ireland some European companies, Mainstream Renewable Power, with lots of, began to look to the emerging markets in the rest of the world.

Statistics show that since 2009, the decline based on supply chain cost, global solar prices have dropped an average of 62%. Bloomberg new energy finance estimates that by 2025, the average generation cost of solar energy in the world likely to be cheaper than coal-fired power.

Director-General of the international renewable energy agency Anan ˙ Amin said: “the solar installed capacity doubled every time, can drive the price of electricity decreased by about 20%. The power market, would be to change the rules of the game change. ”

Bloomberg believes that advances in technology are key elements for solar industry forward. In addition, economies of scale and experience evolves, making solar power’s market competitiveness is increasing. According to Bloomberg new energy finance analysis of solar energy JennyChase introduced there were an average of each additional 1 megawatt solar energy system installation, cost about $1.14/w, but by 2025, this figure will be reduced to 73 cents per watt, declined to 36%.

Market research company analyst at GTM Research MJShiao to the United States as an example, current United States solar power in parts of Southwest’s price close to us $1/Watt by 2021 could fall to 75 cents per watt. However, the United States Department of energy national renewable energy laboratory owned by the forecast is slightly conservative. The senior project manager DonaldChung said by 2020 the costs may be reduced to $1/Watt for solar power, but he also believes that this downward trend will be maintained until 2030.

Solar developers Enviromena Power Systems founder and Chief Executive of Abu Dhabi SamiKhoreibi said that solar power has in fact been opened the “puerile” mode and lower prices will be the future of a “normal”.

According to the International Energy Agency estimated, utility-scale solar power costs, could fall an average of 25% in the next 5 years. The international renewable energy agency expects that by 2025, solar power will cost 43% to 65%, today compared to 2009 levels dropped as much as 84%.

However, Bloomberg noted that although on average the cost of solar power will continue to decrease, but in all countries and regions, the decline may not be the same. In Europe and Brazil, due to imports of coal, carbon tax policy, expected around 2020 solar electricity price is expected to be lower than that of coal-fired power; such as India with large coal reserves of their own countries, solar electricity prices fall to less than coal-fired power generation may take a long time.

Facing the industry optimism about solar power, as a “reference” coal-fired power industry are not “discouraged.”

WCI Chief Executive Benjamin Sporton suggested that renewable energy cost calculations often do not take into account the cost of backup power supply part, once that part of the expenditure is included, the economic advantages of coal-fired power stations will remain obvious even by the year 2035.

“All economies in the process of rapid development, needs all the clock power supply. “Sporton said,” However, wind, and solar power are intermittent electricity supply. Therefore, although some renewable power a significant decrease in costs in recent years, but when it comes to the cost of electricity is to consider the cost of the power supply system as a whole. ”

But, even so, the industry continues to believe that the price of solar power has the ability to participate in market competition “strength”. According to Bloomberg new energy finance predicts that as the world’s largest solar market in China by 2030 can achieve solar power costs less than coal-fired power. In addition, countries with relatively good sunlight conditions and possible future leader in reducing power generation costs.

“We have seen a new market reality. “Khoreibi said,” solar energy is likely to be the lowest-cost sources of power in the future. It can be predicted that with the development of technology, solar power costs will continue to decline. ”

Morocco the world’s largest solar thermal power generation project Noor

Although the specific terms and conditions of the reform has not yet been determined, but the clear renewable-energy investors could sell its surplus electricity output 20%.

The pursuit of energy independence is Morocco an important factor in developing solar energy. Earlier, Morocco’s energy needs imports 97%. Despite low oil prices make the 2015 28% lower energy bills, but the account deficit shrank nearly two percentage points, equivalent to 2.1% of GDP, this is mainly because of the fragility of the country’s excessive reliance on energy markets.

Since 1991, Morocco power consumption growing at a rate of 5% to 6% per year, according to this calculation, the country’s energy demand will double by 2050 No 5.

To achieve the ambitious renewable energy targets, 2009, Morocco developed a solar plan (MSP), aims to develop the country’s years of 3,000 hours of sunshine solar energy potential. Morocco is in the South of building the world’s largest solar thermal power generation project Noor, at a cost of $2.7 billion, covers an area of 2000 hectares, total installed capacity up to 580 megawatts of power generation.

A project Noor1 slot capacity of 160 MW power station has been officially put into operation, and follow-up projects Noor2 and Noor3 under construction, operation as a whole generate enough electricity to meet the 1 million after Morocco home use. Noor project is expected to enable Morocco reduced oil imports of up to 2.5 million tons a year.

In addition to speed up the implementation of the national solar energy plan, Morocco has also strengthened cooperation with the European countries. Morocco and Portugal will jointly develop renewable energy signed a memorandum of understanding. Cooperation between the two sides is the basis of Portugal’s experience in renewable energy grid, to become joint leader in the African green energy exports to Europe as a whole.

Last November, Morocco renewable energy public institutions Masen and Saudi Arabia’s Acwa Power signed a 20-year PPA, to buy 170 megawatts of solar electricity generated by the project.

In addition, Morocco plan to raise 800 megawatts of wind power installed capacity from 2015 to 2020 2 gigawatts. Morocco has 3500 kilometers of coastline, has the great advantage of offshore wind power development. Abu Dhabi national energy company Morocco company will soon build a 140-megawatt wind power station near Tangiers, first phase of 60 MW will be commissioned in 2017. It is reported that the wind power the equivalent of 900,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions, saving $200 million cost of imported fossil fuels.

In July, France and Morocco agreement, build 5 GW and 6 GW of power generation projects. France Engie has Morocco implemented a number of renewable energy projects in the Southwest. Isabelle Kocher, Chief Executive of the company said: “solid relations of cooperation is central to us strategy in Africa. In order to expand the renewable energy development, 2020-2025 we hope Egypt, Ivory Coast, Senegal, Ghana and Cameroon enterprises to establish a cooperative relationship. ”
