As the Chinese New Year is around the corner, the PV market enters into an off-season, and short-term demand from China and Taiwan has rapidly declined. This week, spot prices of PV products continue the dropping trend lasting from the previous weeks. Most Chinese and Taiwanese will start a long vacation after they complete orders and shipment next week, while it is still unclear about how the market would be after the Chinese New Year at the moment.
China’s National Energy Administration has unveiled the national goal of installing 15GW of new solar projects in 2015. Furthermore, it publishes a series of official and financial supportive programs. The huge domestic demand can help Chinese manufacturers to secure part of their surplus production capacity.
Last but not least, EnergyTrend’s team will take part in the World Smart Energy Week 2015 exhibition in Tokyo, Japan after the Chinese New Year. Exhibitions such as PV EXPO, PV System EXPO and Battery Japan will be visited and reported.
