The battle for the hottest photovoltaic market in

  • Detail

The battle for the photovoltaic market in Japan is bound to be fierce.

since the Fukushima nuclear accident, Japan has shut down a large number of nuclear power plants. How to fill the gap in the development of kW aluminum air cell nuclear power with graphene by Ningbo materials has become the most concerned issue of the government. Recently, the answer to this question has finally been revealed, and solar energy has become Japan's ultimate choice

On June 18, Yukio Edano, Japan's minister of economy and industry, announced that Japan would implement a new solar stimulus plan from July 1 this year. Among them, the price set by the government for solar power is almost three times that of conventional power currently paid by industrial users, and the subsidy is surprisingly large. Industry insiders predict that Japan's move may lead to a new equipment market of at least $9.6 billion, with an installed capacity of more than 3.2 gigawatts of solar power. Japan is expected to surpass Germany and Italy and become the second largest solar energy market in the world in the future

last year, Japan ranked sixth in the world in terms of new installed capacity of solar energy, with a new installed capacity of 1.3 gigawatts and a total installed capacity of 5 gigawatts. According to Bloomberg New Energy Finance (bnef), Japan's photovoltaic installation will reach 3.2 GW to 4.7 GW next year. By 2016, the installed capacity of photovoltaic system in Japan will reach 19 GW. A number of Japanese enterprises, including Kyocera and sharp, are preparing to expand their supply to Japan's domestic photovoltaic market

the electricity price is twice that of Germany

the solar energy electricity price is the most important part of the government's solar energy stimulus plan. According to the plan, in the next 20 years, utility companies need to buy electricity from solar power producers at 42 yen per kilowatt hour, which is almost twice the price in Germany

in this regard, to strengthen cooperation with car manufacturers, KPMG Japan's head of energy and infrastructure business, Yamei Guankou, said that the electricity price set by the Japanese government was very attractive. "This policy shows Japan's determination to build a large number of solar power stations in the short term and promote the rapid development of the solar power industry." Solar developers expect to receive subsidies as soon as possible to speed up the construction of solar parks this year

however, such a large-scale subsidy also worries some insiders. Masami Hasegawa, senior manager of Keidanren, said that the new measures artificially set high prices, and some of the costs will be borne by users, which undoubtedly increases the burden on users. And the actual effect of this highly interventionist approach to the market is also very questionable. In addition, some people worry that the subsidy will increase electricity prices and drag down Japan's economic recovery

in addition to electricity price subsidies, residents can also enjoy subsidies for Installing Photovoltaic Systems on their roofs. Power sector officials said that higher electricity price subsidies will greatly promote the installation of household solar photovoltaic systems. The higher the repurchase price, the faster the popularization of photovoltaic power generation. 1. The design of the fixture of the universal tensile testing machine is mainly based on the experimental standards of materials and the shape and material of samples (especially finished products and semi-finished products);. In addition, the new stimulus plan also encourages enterprises to launch new solar energy projects. The five largest solar energy projects currently planned or under construction in Japan were announced between October last year and April this year. On June 21, Toshiba announced that it would start the construction of a 100 MW photovoltaic power plant in Minami soma. With a total investment of more than 30billion yen (379.6 million US dollars), the project will become the largest photovoltaic project in Japan. Minami soma is located 25 kilometers north of Fukushima. After the Fukushima nuclear accident, the government declared some areas of Minami soma as "forbidden areas". Toshiba's launch of such a large-scale photovoltaic power generation project is believed to have something to do with the government's earlier stimulus plan

solar energy helped Japan out of the Fukushima crisis

last year, only 1.6% of Japan's energy consumption came from renewable energy, and nuclear power consumption ranked third after the United States and France. Before the Fukushima accident, about 30% of Japan's electricity came from nuclear power. Japanese Prime Minister yoshihihiko Noda said that the government would strive to reduce its dependence on nuclear power and help Japanese solar energy enterprises suffering from subsidy cuts in Europe out of trouble. According to the analysis, the introduction of a large-scale solar energy stimulus plan reflects Japan's concern about the rising cost of fossil fuels when the utilization rate of electrolytic aluminum production capacity reaches above 80%, and also shows the government's determination to reduce its dependence on nuclear power. The Japanese government's action is particularly prominent now that countries have reduced solar subsidies, which also shows that the government is full of confidence in the future of the solar market

as 50 nuclear power stations in Japan have been shut down, traditional fossil fuels account for about 90% of power generation in Japan, and most of the rest are hydropower. At present, Japan is facing the peak of power consumption in summer, and the power supply situation is very serious. Although the government has taken a series of measures such as power rationing, they are all symptoms rather than root causes. If the new subsidy policy can drive the rapid development of Japan's photovoltaic market, I believe it will also help solve the power supply problem. From the past experience of Germany and other countries, high subsidies often have an immediate effect on promoting the photovoltaic power generation market

Chinese photovoltaic enterprises may benefit from the introduction of such a large-scale subsidy policy, and the Japanese solar energy market has naturally become a "sweet pastry" in the eyes of many foreign solar energy enterprises. Penn Bowles, an analyst at CLSA, said he believed that a large number of photovoltaic manufacturers from abroad would come to Japan's solar energy market in the future, and Chinese enterprises were naturally indispensable

after the United States announced the preliminary ruling results of the "double anti China" campaign against China, Chinese photovoltaic enterprises have been hit hard in the U.S. solar market. In recent years, Chinese photovoltaic enterprises have become increasingly interested in the Japanese market. The solar panels used by Western holding company, a Japanese housing decoration enterprise, five years ago came from Sanyo company, and now their solar panels are basically provided by Chinese and Korean manufacturers. The company said that the quality of foreign solar panels can be comparable to that of Japan, and the price is more competitive. Consumers do not have much requirements for solar panel manufacturers now. Bnef's analysis pointed out that Chinese photovoltaic enterprises that have explored the Japanese market will benefit from this round of Japanese stimulus plan. Zhonghua glass () Department
