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.
|Company||Total MWs awarded|
|1||Chinese State Power Investment Corporation||1,674|
|3||China General Nuclear Power Group||760|
|6||Guangzhou Development Group||510|
|8||China HuaNeng Group||492|
|9||China Energy Conservation and Environmental Protection Group||475|
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.

PV Tech is hosting a TechTalk Product Series webinar with LONGi Solar to help PV project developers, asset owners and interested parties become aware of the latest in utility-scale PV panel technology, performance and size that is redefining LCOE metrics.
The UK and Ireland markets are seeing multi-GW of pipelines being planned for new utility-scale solar and energy storage during the next few years. These complementary sectors are starting to form new built portfolios for some of the leading global developers and long-term owners. This webinar - featuring presentations from Finlay Colville and Lauren Cook - will explain what is driving the uptick in new project planning, a breakdown of the pipelines by pre-build status, and which companies are behind the new projects.
Understand fully the technical and logistical supply chains that determine the production and performance of solar modules, including all related factors impacting quality, reliability & bankability.
