PV benchmarking grid-connected electricity price reduced in 2017, reducing 4.5 billion new subsidies each year
The much-adjusted photovoltaic electricity price adjustment is finally settled.
The National Development and Reform Commission recently issued a notice, which proposes to reduce the on-grid electricity prices of photovoltaic power stations and onshore wind power benchmarks by resource area, while the subsidy standards for distributed photovoltaic power generation and offshore benchmark wind power prices are not adjusted.
The notice shows that after January 1, 2017, the benchmark on-grid electricity prices of new photovoltaic power stations in the first to third resource areas were adjusted to 0.65 yuan, 0.75 yuan, and 0.85 yuan per kilowatt-hour. This is a moderation from the drastic adjustments to the consultation draft issued in September.
The decline in subsidies for photovoltaics has always been a "stone" hanging from the hearts of practitioners, and the relative ease of landing this time is also the result of a multi-party game. The previous consultation draft had a lot of controversy, and then there were more texts from the media questioning the photovoltaic industry "cannot survive without subsidies", which subsequently led to the refusal of the China Photovoltaic Industry Association; in addition, the National Chamber of Commerce and Industry New Energy Chamber of Commerce also commented on the draft The adjustment plan in China urgently solicited the opinions of member companies and reported them in aggregate.曾 Zeng Shaojun, professional vice president of the New Energy Chamber of Commerce of the All-China Federation of Industry and Commerce, told the reporter of the Daily Economic News that the price adjustment was the result of many efforts. After the price adjustment is proposed, it is also necessary to make gentle and rational adjustments. Enterprises should adjust their strategies in the direction of large policies and carry out industry cooperation and cooperation in a timely manner to win in the cruel market competition.
Appropriately reduce the electricity price of PV benchmarking
The National Development and Reform Commission recently announced the adjustment of on-grid on-grid tariffs for onshore wind power in photovoltaic power stations. After January 1, 2017, the on-grid tariffs for new-scale photovoltaic power stations in Class I to III resource areas were adjusted to 0.65 yuan, 0.75 yuan, and 0.85 yuan per kilowatt-hour. Compared with 2016, the electricity price is reduced by 0.15 yuan, 0.13 yuan, and 0.13 yuan per kWh.
同时 At the same time, the National Development and Reform Commission made it clear that in the future, PV benchmark electricity prices will be adjusted once a year in accordance with changes in costs. After January 1, 2018, the on-grid on-grid tariffs for newly approved construction of onshore wind power in Class I to IV resource areas were adjusted to 0.40 yuan, 0.45 yuan, 0.49 yuan, and 0.57 yuan per kilowatt-hour, respectively, compared with 2016-2017 electricity prices per kilowatt. Decrease 7 points, 5 points, 5 points, 3 points.
In addition, the notice shows that the appropriate reduction of the on-grid tariffs for photovoltaic power plants and onshore wind power benchmarking will help reduce the pressure on the growth of new energy subsidy funds. According to the current development rate of photovoltaic and wind power, after the reduction of the benchmark on-grid electricity price of photovoltaic power plants in 2017, the subsidy demand for new photovoltaic power plants will be reduced by about 4.5 billion yuan each year; after the onshore wind power prices have also been reduced in 2018, new onshore power plants will be reduced each year. The demand for wind power subsidies is about 1.5 billion yuan, which reduces the total need for new subsidy funds by about 6 billion yuan each year.
The reporter noticed that from the release of the consultation draft in September to the final adjustment of electricity prices, photovoltaic subsidies have been the focus of attention in the industry. Industry insiders and related companies have been controversial about the magnitude of the reduction in the September draft.
Shortly after the above opinion draft was published, a media article stated that China's photovoltaic industry is "an industry that cannot make money without subsidies, an industry that is marked by low carbon, but actually has high energy consumption and high costs. Scam ". On October 11, China Photovoltaic Industry Association issued "Severe Statement" to refute one by one. Core views such as "not living without subsidies" are refuted by detailed data.
On October 9, in response to the sharp decline in subsidy prices in the opinion draft, the All-China Chamber of Commerce and Industry's New Energy Chamber of Commerce also issued an "urgent notice on soliciting opinions on the adjustment of photovoltaic benchmark grid-connected electricity prices", saying that the above-mentioned electricity price adjustment plan will The future development of the photovoltaic industry has a significant impact. The New Energy Chamber of Commerce attaches great importance to it. After research, it decided to urgently solicit member companies' opinions and report it to the National Development and Reform Commission and the National Energy Administration.
China Photovoltaic Industry Association believes that, according to the development of the photovoltaic industry, gradually reducing subsidies for photovoltaic power generation is an effective way to drive enterprises to strengthen technological innovation, reduce photovoltaic power generation costs, and achieve photovoltaic parity on-line access.
Able to protect the revenue of photovoltaic power generation projects
"Daily Economic News" reporter noticed that compared with the decrease in the opinion draft issued at the end of September, the three types of photovoltaic on-grid electricity prices were reduced from 0.98 yuan, 0.88 yuan, and 0.80 yuan to 0.75 yuan, 0.65 yuan, and 0.55 yuan, respectively. The current prices The magnitude of adjustment is still moderated.
According to Zeng Shaojun, this is also a result of the efforts of various parties. The price adjustment department has also listened to the suggestions of various parties, and industry associations and enterprises have also done a lot of work.
"This price adjustment still has a major impact on the industry, and some companies have to make major adjustments in their operations and management." Zeng Shaojun told reporters, "After the proposal, the price adjustment should also be carried out smoothly and rationally, otherwise it will not be conducive to the development of the company. And integration. "
The Chinese photovoltaic industry association believes that the adjustment of this large-scale ground power station is larger than the previous two years, but basically reflects the current level of technological development. The adjusted electricity price can guarantee the revenue of photovoltaic power generation projects; the distributed photovoltaic electricity price remains unchanged and is expected to Promote it to usher in the golden period of large-scale development.
