By Frank Haugwitz, Frank Haugwitz is an expert on PV and renewable energy in China. Based in Beijing since 2002, he founded and directs Asia Europe Clean Energy (Solar) Advisory (AECEA), a consultancy working to help European and Asian companies understand Chinese renewable energy regulation and policy. Since 2013 he has been the elected vice chairman of the Renewable Energy Working Group of the European Chamber of Commerce in China.

Market update | At the end of 2016 China published a long-awaited plan that will determine the course of PV deployment for the next five years. China solar industry expert Frank Haugwitz unpicks the plan and assesses the country’s chances of surpassing 100GW of capacity this year.

Who’d be solar market forecaster? Shifting sands in the two largest global markets coupled with a patchwork of emerging demand, that could as easily deliver several gigawatts as they could nothing at all, make the job a tricky one. A swell of registered projects in China in H1 slowed progress in H2 and there are signs of more of the same in 2017. Beijing based consultant Frank Haugwitz takes a deep dive (p.18) into China’s 13th five-year plan including the real meaning behind its decreased PV targets and the benching of efforts to promote distributed generation.
