Beijing prepares to take more planned approach to solar

Details are emerging of a plan by the authorities in Beijing to institute a more centrally planned approach to PV project development.

Two branches of the government have reportedly agreed to focus on ensuring solar power projects are based in the east of the populous nation, because transmission infrastructure failings in the north and northwest of China have led to unacceptably high curtailment issues.

Curtailment – energy that is generated but wasted – has attracted the attention of the central authorities as part of the government’s plan to get the most from solar, while reducing the strain on the public purse.

China’s National Development and Reform Commission and the National Energy Administration will “soon” launch a three-year plan that will involve limiting curtailment of power generated from PV projects to less than 5%.
