The 13th Solar Energy Development Five Year Plan (2016-2020) was adopted by National Energy Administration on 8th of December 2016 establishing targets for solar energy deployment until 2020. Targets are as follow:
Solar energy technology
Target by 2020
Targeted costs reductions
At least 105 GW
By 50% by 2020 in comparison to 2015 costs.
Reduction of feed-in tariffs (FITs) for SCP to RMB 0.8yuan/kWh.
800 million square meters of installations
The Plan puts an emphasis on further deployment of distributed PV by its increased usage in agriculture, building and fishery sectors.
