British media: China targets high-end photovoltaic power generation market

According to British Reuters, China expects to dominate the high-end market for solar photovoltaic power. In recent years, the solar photovoltaic power generation industry has grown rapidly, becoming one of the world's major growth markets.
It is reported that China intends to implement the "Photovoltaic Pioneer Program", which will promote the entire solar photovoltaic power generation industry to develop high-performance solar photovoltaic cells in the mass market. At present, high-performance solar photovoltaic cells are mainly used in high-tech products such as satellites.
China's implementation of the "Photovoltaic Pioneer Program" will make the price of high-performance solar photovoltaic cells "more accessible", which will likely promote the further development of the solar photovoltaic power generation industry. It will also affect other internationally renowned solar photovoltaic cell manufacturers, such as CSI Astor, REC Solar, Sharp, etc., form a lot of competitive pressure.
According to the 2017 “Photovoltaic Pioneer Program”, the China Energy Administration stated that China plans to increase the installed capacity of 8 to 10 GW based on the existing total installed capacity of 80 GW of solar photovoltaic power.
Stanford University wrote in the 2017 Global Solar Photovoltaic Power Generation Industry Report: "This change will have a profound impact on the global solar photovoltaic power generation industry. It is particularly worth noting that this move will help China rank among The top echelon in the country. "
Statistics released by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IREA) based in Abu Dhabi show that the cumulative installed capacity of global solar photovoltaic power generation has surged from 1 GW in 2000 to about 300 GW today, and this figure May double in 2020.
The rapid growth of the global solar photovoltaic power generation industry is largely dependent on polycrystalline silicon solar cells. Although the photovoltaic energy conversion efficiency of polycrystalline silicon solar cells is not as good as that of monocrystalline silicon solar cells, its price is lower, and the current price is less than 50 cents / watt (about 3.3 yuan / watt).
However, as China increases the production of monocrystalline silicon solar cells, the price gap between the two types of cells has gradually narrowed. Longji Green Energy Technology Co., Ltd. is one of the major solar photovoltaic cell manufacturers in China. The head of the company's quality management department said that they are increasing their investment in monocrystalline silicon solar cells. "The market share of monocrystalline silicon solar cells It can be greatly increased from the current 1/5 to more than 50%. "
