Last week the Chinese National Energy Administration (NEA) revealed the winners of its feed-in tariff (FiT) auction.

The competitive tender is the replacement to the old FiT, which was halted as part of the 531 New Deal process in May 2018. In total, just short of 23GW of projects have been awarded.

Using the NEA data, along with other publicly available numbers and with some companies adjusting the final tallies, PV Tech can present the top ten winners from the tender, arranged by capacity awarded.

CompanyTotal MWs awarded
1Chinese State Power Investment Corporation1,674
2Sungrow1,576
3China General Nuclear Power Group760
4China Datang617

6Guangzhou Development Group510
7Jinko Solar510
8China HuaNeng Group492
9China Energy Conservation and Environmental Protection Group475
10Singyes Solar380

Companies were invited to bid for a premium over and above the benchmarked electricity price in the province where a potential project is based. The lowest price across all the awarded projects was RMB0.2795/kWh, just over US$0.04.
