Chinese photovoltaics, an important contribution to promoting carbon neutrality
In the face of many tests such as the new epidemic in 2020, China's photovoltaic industry still maintains a steady growth trend, showing the strong vitality and risk resistance of the industry.In 2021, China will enter the "14th Five-Year Plan" period, and renewable energy sources such as photovoltaic and wind power will become the dominant energy sources. "During the 14th Five-Year Plan period, China's photovoltaic industry will rely on the competitive advantages of the whole industry chain, continue to strive for innovation, lead global development, accelerate the global energy clean and low-carbon transformation under the new development pattern of "double cycle", and promote green economic development. The carbon peak and carbon neutral targets are both a challenge and an opportunity for China's energy industry.In order to build a clean, low-carbon, safe and efficient energy system and to promote a new pattern of PV development, we must first create a new space for PV applications. 2021 will see China's PV enter the era of price parity, which will require the PV industry to continue to improve efficiency and reduce costs. But as overall costs fall, non-technical costs account for an increasingly high proportion. According to statistics, there are about 15% of costs that are not under the control of the PV companies themselves, such as land and taxes, leading to an increase in the overall cost of PV power generation. It is hoped that the relevant national departments will increase their efforts to reduce these non-technical costs, coordinate PV with land, agriculture and forestry policies effectively, release commercial and industrial and residential rooftops and various spaces where PV can be installed, and actively promote the marketization process of electricity sales and power trading across walls to give PV sufficient policy and environmental space for development.Secondly, the height of industrial innovation should be enhanced. By promoting the application of high-quality products such as large-size silicon wafers, high-efficiency photovoltaic cells, high-volume power density modules and intelligent tracking brackets, and through the innovation of the whole industry chain from equipment, materials, products to systems, we will further reduce the technical cost of photovoltaic power generation and promote the healthy and sustainable development of the photovoltaic industry.Finally, a new pattern of PV development should be formed. During the "14th Five-Year Plan" period, PV should be allowed to gradually move towards stable and affordable electricity on the basis of affordable electricity. We will strengthen the deep integration of PV applications with other industries, vigorously develop new models that combine PV and energy storage, promote business models that synergise PV systems with technologies such as the Internet of Things and big data, and move to a higher level in global development to maintain our status as a benchmark industry for double-cycle development.
Promoting carbon neutrality, China's photovoltaics hold great promise
