According to the industry plan announced by the ministry, the country will reduce the cost of solar power to CNY 0.8 per KWh by 2015 and CNY 0.6 per KWh by 2020 and increase production of solar panels.

The plan requires China's leading polysilicon manufacturers to reach annual production capacity of 50,000 tons by 2015. Solar panel makers will have to reach 5GW annual production capacity by the same year.

China will put more effort into the production technology for BIPV in the coming years. According to the plan, China aims to increase the conversion efficiency of monocrystalline silicon solar cells to 21%, polysilicon cells to 19%and amorphous silicon cells to 12% by 2015

Above was established in Feb 2012 and announced by Ministry of industry and Information Technology.
