China leads the growth of global solar energy, contributing nearly half of the global increase, power batteries, high-voltage switchgear batteries
The Director of the International Energy Agency Fatih Birol said in London on October 4 that solar photovoltaic power generation became the fastest-growing new energy source for the first time in 2016. Birol said this is 'excellent news.' In the annual report 'Renewable Energy Market Report 2017The focus on energy has brought good news to the industry. 'In 2016, solar photovoltaic power generation capacity increased by 50%, and China's contribution to global growth was nearly half. Birol pointed out that the new solar power generation capacity even surpassed the net increase in coal power generation capacity. Regarding China’s renewable energy development, Birol noted that “6 out of every 10 solar panels are manufactured by Chinese companies, reflecting China’s key role in this field”. According to the report, due to the strong promotion of the solar photovoltaic market, the global new installed capacity of renewable energy power generation in 2016 was close to 165 GW, accounting for about two-thirds of the global new power generation capacity. The report predicts that in the next few years, renewable energy will continue to maintain a strong development trend. It is estimated that by 2022, the global installed capacity of renewable energy power generation will increase by about 1,000 GW, an increase of more than 43%. The International Energy Agency pointed out that due to China's efforts to control air pollution and achieve the renewable energy development goals set out in the national '13th Five-Year PlanIn the field of solar photovoltaic power generation, China has completed the goal originally planned to be achieved in 2020 three years ahead of schedule. In addition to solar photovoltaic power generation, China is also a leader in the global hydropower, biomass power generation and heating, and electric vehicle markets. The German 'Business Daily' website reported on October 4 that the International Energy Agency released a report on renewable energy in London on the 4th. The report shows that last year the global solar power generation capacity increased more than other sources of electricity for the first time. On the contrary, the growth rate of wind and hydropower has slowed down. In 2016, renewable energy contributed two-thirds of the total growth in the energy sector. The analysis believes that the solar energy boom is mainly attributed to China. At present, about 60% of the world's solar panels are produced in China, and about half of the buyers are also from China. The report pointed out that the decline in the price of renewable energy and the favorable conditions provided by governments have promoted the strong growth of renewable energy. Despite the political uncertainty brought about by the Trump administration, the United States remains the world's second largest renewable energy growth market. The International Energy Agency believes that renewable energy will continue to grow substantially in the next five years. India will play an increasingly important role. Experts from the International Energy Agency estimate that India's renewable energy growth in the next five years will exceed that of the European Union. It is predicted that India's renewable energy power generation capacity will double by 2022. Germany's renewable energy growth in the next five years will at least remain stable. As far as the EU is concerned, experts believe that the expansion of renewable energy will slow down significantly. The report predicts that by 2022, global green energy power generation will increase by about one-third to 8 trillion kilowatt-hours, which is equivalent to the combined electricity consumption of China, India and Germany.
