Distributed Solar Develop Quickly, Joint Venture Company Has Prosperous Prospects.
Under the background of “carbon peak” and “carbon neutral”, clean energy transition and green recovery have become a trend. The global photovoltaic market is growing rapidly. It is estimated that during the “14th Five-Year Plan” period, the global newly increased PV capacity will be about 163-266GW annually. At present, the development main point of PV power station in China is gradually shifting from the traditional centralized solar power station to distributed solar power station, which is integrated with the construction, transportation and other fields and superimposed on the application scale of residential building. It is expected that the proportion of distributed photovoltaic power station will continue to increase and become the mainstream of future development.
After PV industry entered the era of grid parity, central and state-owned enterprises accelerated into the PV industry, the new pattern of distributed PV investors is forming, and the market is growing and becoming increasingly mature. As the main battlefield for the joint venture in early development, By the end of 2020, the proportion of PV in the power generation structure in Fujian Province was only 0.1%, far lower than the proportion of the whole country (3.51%). With the decrease of the overall construction cost of solar power stations and the promotion of residential solar system policies in the whole county, solar power generation in Fujian province has a great space for improvement in the future.
