The Chinese government has confirmed a 14GW solar subsidy quota for 2014.

According to a statement released by the National Energy Board, 8GW of distributed PV and 6GW of utility-scale solar will be supported next year. The figures will be revised in June.

Projects that exceed their region’s proportion of the quota will not be eligible for support but exceptions could be made for some distributed energy installs.

Shandong, Jiangsu Province and Zhejiang were each allocated 120MW of capacity.

Xinjiang received the largest utility-scale allocation of 60MW.

If the quota were to be fully subscribed, it would exceed the 12GW prediction in place by Deutsche Bank in a recent research note.
