  • Holly Hu | November 14, 2018
    The IHS Markit 2018 outlook for China has been raised from 37 GW to 40 GW. While it appears that China will maintain a steady level of annual installations, quarterly fluctuations will continue, shaped by policy-making decisions. The total cumulative PV capacity in China is forecast to reach to 255 GW at the end of 2020, resulting in around 40 GW of installations per year in 2019 and 2020.

    The concept of “revamping and repowering” is one of the newest terms in the solar industry. As the installed base of photovoltaic (PV) systems age, the concept of upgrading and improving operating plants becomes increasingly relevant to both manufacturers and PV plant asset managers. However, the real market size for new PV components in existing plants will depend on the characteristics of each plant, the overall regulatory framework and the economic benefits that will accrue to asset managers

    On 30 October 2018, the National Energy Administration (NEA) reported that China had added 34.54 GW of solar PV in the first three quarters of 2018. This brings the total cumulative PV capacity to 165 GW. NEA is now discussing new PV targets for 2020, with reported proposals ranging from 210 GW to 270 GW. Based on these figures IHS Markit slightly raises the 2018 outlook for China from 37 GW to 40 GW and remains optimistic that China will maintain a steady level of annual installations. Quarterly fluctuations will continue with patterns depending on policy design.
