Solar Energy Industry Promotes Last Year

British media said that as the United States and China to promote the solar energy industry, the world last year, new solar power production capacity rose, an increase of up to 50%.

According to the British "Guardian" website reported on March 7, 2016 new solar PV installed capacity of more than 76 gigawatts, far higher than the previous year's 50 gigawatts. China and the United States are leading the way in this regard, according to the European solar trading company data, the two countries last year's new installed capacity than in 2015 increased by nearly 1 times.

Solar Energy Industry Promotes Last Year

The current global installed capacity of solar power has increased from 50 gigawatts in 2010 to 305 gigawatts. Industry insiders say such growth is "very impressive", and this technology is an important way for mankind to honor climate change commitments.


"In order to achieve the goal of the Paris climate agreement, it is important to keep the rapid development of the solar industry," said James Watson, president of the European Solar Energy Association. "The global portable solar power generator industry is ready and even possible to grow faster."


British 2016 new solar power installed capacity than the previous year hit a record peak of about 50%. The reason is that the government to reduce the incentive to install solar panels on the family, and no longer to large-scale solar power plants to be subsidized.

Despite this, the UK's new installed capacity accounted for 29% of the total installed capacity, ahead of the rest of Europe, Germany (21%) and France (8.3%) ranked second only to the United Kingdom. Germany began construction of solar energy industry a few years ago and the industry to subsidize the country is still the highest total solar energy production in Europe, Italy ranked second. At the beginning of 2016, Europe's solar installed capacity exceeded 100 gigawatts and is currently at a level of 104 gigawatts. However, the slow growth in Europe prompted the solar industry to call on the EU to develop more aggressive renewable energy targets.

"We have to develop a grand industrial plan for solar and renewable energy," said Alexander Lech, director of policy at the European Solar Energy Association. "The primary goal is to raise the share of renewable energy in 2030 to at least 35% %), Which will release a strong signal that the European solar industry will revive again.

European solar companies have called on the European Commission to revisit the anti-dumping tariff policy imposed on China's solar panels since 2013. As a result of opposition from a number of member states, the European Commission is considering extending the tariff policy for 18 months, which is shorter than originally planned.

Nearly half of last year's new capacity came from China, while Asia's new installed capacity accounted for two-thirds of the world's total. Data show that solar power in most countries is still a relatively small public power generation. Even in those areas where the technology is most active, such as Europe, solar power can only meet 4% of electricity demand.
