Chinese Government reveals suppliers shortlisted for solar power projects

A joint notice has been released by the Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Science and Technology, the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development and the National Energy Administration, to confirm a list of shortlisted companies in supplying key technology for the China Golden Sun and Solar PV Building Demonstration Projects. The decision has been made through unified bidding, which included c-Si PV modules, grid-connected inverters and lead-acid storage batteries. Agreed supply prices were also disclosed (see table). Shortlisted companies include, Yingli Green, Shanghai Solar Energy Science & Technology and Jiangyin Hareon Solar.

In all, 13 developing zones and industrial parks are confirmed to be used for demonstration projects, including Beijing Economic and Technology Development Zone, totalling 272MW. The first phase of has 83 planned projects, totalling 170MW; 34 projects are defined as individual Golden Sun Demonstrative Projects, totalling of 92MW; for solving the local power generation problems, the demonstration projects are also going to take place in 3 counties, accounting for 10MW. These include Qilian County of Qinghai Province, Qiemo County of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region and Bangor County of Tibet Autonomous Region.

For projects which have been included last year but can not be implemented, cancellation has been made for these 39 projects amounting to 54MW.

In July 2009, China’s Ministry of Finance (MOF) announced Temporary Management Method of Financial Subsidies for Golden Sun Demonstrative Projects, the second set of solar PV subsidy schemes from the ministry. Under this programme, the MOF will provide financial support to Golden Sun Demonstrative Projects, including on-grid and off-grid solar PV projects with scales larger than 300kw.

The MOF will subsidise 50% and 70% of the investment costs of on-grid and off-grid solar PV projects, respectively, including solar system costs and grid connection costs. As of the end of 2009, the MOF had granted subsidies to some 500MW solar projects under the Golden Sun Programme.

In order to liquidate the subsidy fund, the projects need to obtain a jointly acceptance from the National Energy Administration, Ministry of Science and Technology and Ministry of Finance.

  • Photovoltaics International 24th Edition

    Signs earlier in the year of the global industry entering a growth phase have now been confirmed beyond any doubt. Almost all the big-name suppliers have now announced some form of manufacturing capacity expansion, a trend that analysts agree will only gather pace as long as the levels of demand predicted over the next few years turn out to be correct.

  • Manufacturing The Solar Future: The 2014 Production Annual

    Although the past few years have proved extremely testing for PV equipment manufacturers, falling module prices have driven solar end-market demand to previously unseen levels. That demand is now starting to be felt by manufacturers, to the extent that leading companies are starting to talk about serious capacity expansions later this year and into 2015. This means that the next 12 months will be a critical period if companies throughout the supply chain are to take full advantage of the PV industry’s next growth phase.
