A Review and Outlook on Development until 2015 and Beyond

In 2013 China achieved 13 GW and in 2014 btw 10.5 to 12 GW of solar PV installations making it twice so far the largest market worldwide.
In 2014 China’s drive to increase the share of distributed solar PV applications fell short of national targets due to various factors.
However, 2015 is the closing year of the ongoing 12th Five-Year Plan, the approaching 13th Five-Year Plan (2016-2020) which shall witness an anticipated power sector reform, the introduction of a RPS policy along with the emergence of a domestic emission trading market will have a significant impact on the future demand and shape of the Chinese domestic solar PV market.
