Great Solar Photovoltaic Potential in China

According to the China Solar Photovoltaic Development Report released at World Solar Congress 2007 in Beijing, the cost of solar photovoltaic power in China will be reduced to almost the same level of the conventional power by 2030, and solar photovoltaic power will become one mainstream power.

The report says that the installed solar photovoltaic power generation capacity in China will reach 100 million KW, and the annual power generation output will reach 130 billion KW by 2030.

At present China is the third largest solar cell producing country, but 90% of the solar photovoltaic products are exported, and the domestic solar photovoltaic applications are installed in the remote or rural regions. The solar photovoltaic development is hindered by the high power generation cost.
