Distributed PV subsidies lowered opinions or issued in October

Recently, this reporter was informed that the long-awaited reduction of distributed PV price subsidies will be issued in October. If nothing else, the distributed PV subsidy will be reduced from January 1, 2018.

Before, in 2016, the National Development and Reform Commission issued the “Notice on Adjusting the New Energy Benchmarking On-grid Price (allaboutcar.car.blog)”: The roof distributed “spontaneous use of the Internet” and “all self-use” The subsidy is proposed to be reduced from the current implementation of 0.42 yuan per watt to 0.2 yuan in the category I resource area, 0.25 yuan in the category II resource area, and 0.3 yuan in the category III resource area. The new policy implementation time is January 1, 2017.

After the request for comments in 2016, the subsidy for the subsidy of the ground power station was reached, but there was a certain compromise after the downward adjustment was fully considered. However, the proposed reduction of distributed PV subsidies proposed in 2016 was not finally adopted.

In 2017, China has experienced the largest scale of rushing installations of photovoltaic power plants. According to the CLP data from January to July this year, China’s photovoltaics added 34.92GW of grid connection, an increase of 13.66GW compared with last year. In July alone, PV grid connection reached 10.5GW. In addition, according to statistics from the National Energy Administration, the number of distributed photovoltaic power plants increased to 7.11 GW in the first half of 2017, a year-on-year increase of 2.9 times. Among them, according to relevant persons of the State Grid, China’s new household distributed photovoltaics in the first half of the year was about 145,000, which was quite impressive.

The reporter consulted a number of industry professionals and expressed their approval for the distributed downgrade. At present, the cost of photovoltaics is decreasing every year, and the distributed subsidies have not changed for four years. In addition, the scale of subsidies is also one of the important reasons for reducing subsidies. According to the Energy Research Institute of the National Development and Reform Commission, as of the end of 2016, the renewable energy funding gap is about 50 billion yuan. Some insiders pointed out that if the current subsidy model is adopted, it will be 2020. The subsidy gap will be expanded to more than 300 billion yuan. Undoubtedly, reducing subsidies will always be a decompression of the currently over-resourced renewable energy subsidy fund.

According to the sources, the reduction standard of distributed subsidies is likely to adopt the calculation method of 0.3 yuan / KWh, and the previous subsidy method of emulating different lighting resources areas may not be adoption. But the final content needs to wait for the NDRC’s comments.
