Favorable policies brought about a recovery in overseas photovoltaic demand

Although the overseas market has been hit by COVID-19 this year, it is still not satisfactory overall. According to the global Market Outlook 2020-2024 released by SolarPower Europe, the new installed photovoltaic capacity in the world is expected to reach about 112GW this year.

In the post-epidemic era, more and more countries are turning to photovoltaic technology as one of the main means to stimulate their economic recovery.While most overseas markets suffered a setback in the first half of the year, most of the key overseas markets are expected to see a rebound in installations in the second half and next year.

The European Union

The IEA forecasts that investment in renewable energy in the EU will fall by a third by 2020, including a 50 per cent drop in photovoltaic power generation.

Fortunately, the European Union is considering clean energy as an economic stimulus, and the European Commission is considering a new style of labor Wave, announced by EGD, that involves faster, deeper steps to stimulate the Renovation of existing buildings.Focus on social housing, public buildings, schools and hospitals and their associated energy distribution, retrofitting lighting and heating infrastructure and upgrading solar roof photovolatics.

Specific to member States:

1  Spanish

Spain most of the scale of the policy incentives, launched in 2050, the long-term goal of zero carbon targets, has now become one of the hottest photovoltaic market overseas, only after 1 month of may unlock has launched 7 pv projects, according to the photovoltaic power target set by the Spanish government, in 2020 to 8.4 GW, will reach 23.4 GW in 2025, 2030 implementation of 37 GW.

2  Swiss

Switzerland in April unveiled a 376 million Swiss franc subsidy program for residential and commercial rooftop solar subsidies.

3 German

Germany has officially lifted the subsidy ceiling for 52GW of photovoltaic installations, and according to the German Photovoltaic industry Association, the annual growth target for pv should be raised from the current 2.5GW to at least 10GW in a forthcoming amendment to EEG.

4  the Netherlands,

The Dutch Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Policy increased the total budget for the SDE+ large renewable energy incentive scheme from 2 billion to 4 billion.

5  Portuguese

The Portuguese government, which has a 2020 energy target of 59.6% from renewable sources, is pushing for a 700MW renewable energy project that includes energy storage, as well as opening the door to approval of 250MW integrated energy projects, including wind, photovoltaic floats, water and photovoltaic.In addition, by the end of 2020, the 700MW pv project should be connected to the grid to achieve the target of 1.5GW pv installation.

6  French

In France, where the national Energy Plan (PPE) aims to generate 20.1GW of renewable energy by 2023 and 44GW by 2028, Minister of Ecological Transformation Elisabeth Borne announced that 288 photovoltaic and wind power projects and 253 solar power projects were recently submitted for tender.Among them, there are about 88 large-scale photovoltaic projects with a total installation capacity of 649MW.

7  Italian

The Italian government has passed the "economic stimulus to restart the act, a total transfer of 55 billion euros ($60 billion) stimulus special allowance, among them, the" energy saving subsidy "for building renovation project will be increased from 65% to 110%, and for the renovation project with photovoltaic device and the energy storage system, support is greatly increased to 110% from 50% of the cost.


In Japan, the fIT amendment was passed, but this year was supposed to be the last year for legacy projects, some of which may be delayed until next year because of the outbreak.

New rules for the 2020 fiscal year in low pressure side (generally applicable to below 50 kw system) pv projects will not be allowed full access to the Internet, the new project need to confirm the consumption rate in front of the grid and submit the plan, the consumption demand in 30% or more, and to independent power generation when the disaster, must install PCS (output power control device), electric power company will only pay for Internet power outside of consumable.However, Japan does not reduce its support for agricultural light complementation, household photovoltaic, water photovoltaic and other projects. Agricultural photovoltaic projects can sell all low-voltage photovoltaic power generation even if they meet the conditions of farmland temporary conversion permit (10 years).


Malaysia has taken the lead in using pv as a boost to its post-epidemic economy, announcing procurement plans for up to 1 GW and halving the maximum size of eligible projects from 100 mw to 50 MW to enable more developers to participate.


The Government of Viet Nam has promulgated Decision No. 13 on mechanisms to stimulate the development of solar power generation in Viet Nam.The decision stipulates that with respect to rooftop solar power systems, all or part of the electricity can be sold to the purchaser, Viet Nam Power Group, or to other individuals and organizations without using the Viet Nam grid.

The electricity generated by the rooftop solar system is purchased by Viet Power Group or its authorized member units at the current purchase price. If it is not Viet Power Group or its authorized member units, the two parties will determine the purchase price and enter into the purchase contract in accordance with the current law.

In the next five years, Vietnam will jump to the eighth largest market in the world, according to Projections by SolarPower Europe.


Israel's energy minister Yuval Steinitz announced an increase of about 15GW of solar capacity to help the country's 2030 renewable energy target rise from 17 percent to 30 percent, with a project budgeted at $23 billion.


Poland has emerged as a dark horse for 2020, with Bloomberg New Energy Finance forecasting it will be among the world's top 10 installed markets this year, and IEO expects its cumulative photovoltaic capacity to rise from 1.5GW at the end of 2019 to around 2.5GW by the end of this year.

In early June, the European investment bank (EIB) approved a loan of about 18 million euros to polish solar developers for the construction and operation of 66 small photovoltaic power stations in Poland with a total installation capacity of about 65.6MW. The polish government also plans to hold tenders for projects under 1 MW with a total bid size of about 800MW.In addition, the polish government plans to hold tenders for a total of 1.5GW of utility-scale renewable energy, including 700MW photovoltaic projects.
