2014 has witnessed the most exciting moment for Chinese CSP industry---the first commercially operational CSP plant in China—Supcon’s Delingha CSP power plant has won the FiT of 1.2 RMB/Kwh authorized by National Development and Reform Commission for its phase I project. This is the first officially permitted FiT for CSP plant in China. Even though 1.2 is not the rate settled for all the CSP projects in China, it has, to some extent, set up the standard for the future FiT trend, and it also serves as a milestone to stimulate the boosting of Chinese CSP market, and facilitate its scaling up.
With the table turning, Chinese CSP insiders begin to make preparations for the deployment of CSP capital and technology market. Early in this July, when the FiT didn’t come out yet, China Guangdong Nuclear Power Corporation’s (CGNPC) 50MW Delingha CSP project start construction, which shows CGNPC’s great confidence in Chinese CSP market. In September, China Power Investment Corporation’s power tower has passed through the feasibility report. Many other CSP players at home just come back to life, searching for new business cooperation opportunities and setting up new projects. It can be predicted that, in the near future, Chinese CSP industry will go into prosperity. According to the “12th Five-Year Plan” in China, the installed CSP capacity should reach 1GW in 2015 and 3GW in 2020, which can bring hundreds of billions RMB market in China. Some industry analysis indicates that the initially accumulated technology and operational experience will guide the industry pioneers to take the upper hand in market shares.
However until now, Chinese CSP capacity is far behind the goal of “the 12th Five-Year Plan”. Despite of the exciting opportunities in CSP market, challenges also lie within. What incentives can government provide, how to choose best technologies that are suitable in Chinese market, how to expand CSP funding options, these are all the questions that should be taken into consideration.
Take an overview of the whole world, policy changes and program updates in the emerging markets are also eye-catching: after experiencing the failure of
JNNSM phase I, India is going to be prudent by developing and tendering two 50 MW CSP projects. South Africa, as one of the most boosting CSP market with
high DNI, has entered into 3.5 round of REIPPP for CSP bidding, even though the bidding result was said to come out in this June, it is still up in the air. With the absence of CSP in round 4 and the fluctuations of CSP allocation in IRP, South Africa is full of uncertainties. MENA region boasts abundant gas and oil, CSP has no longer been confined to power field, it has also played a vital role in industrial application. Chile, with its plan to allocate 20% electricity to be generated from clean energy by 2050, has set up the first power tower – Cerro Dominador, it has not only helped with reducing carbon dioxide emission, but also with local economy development.
CSP technology can also be applied to other industries, such as papermaking, textile industry, food industry, tobacco industry, lumbering, chemistry, plastics and medicine industry. CSP technology can offer alternative energy to generate heat in EOR, solar air conditioner, hydrogen production, which proves that CSP can even go further outside of electricity generation field.
