Regarding plan guidance and scale management, State Council authorities in charge of energy determine the scale and layout of photovoltaic power plant construction on the national level, and annual development scales on the province (autonomous region and municipality) level with reference to national energy development plans, renewable energy development plans, and argumentation of solar power resources in regions, economics of the photovoltaic power plant technology, electricity demand, and grid conditions, etc. Regarding project record management, works e.g. location planning, resource evaluation, construction condition argumentation, and market demand analysis, are required before the building of new PV power plants.
