Industry Analysis & Industry Trends
The still immature Solar Power Generation industry has been developing rapidly. Industry revenue has been rising at an annualized rate of 195.8% over the five years through 2013 to total $1.6 billion.
Rising household demand for electricity in China has led to several power supply shortages over the past few years, which has stimulated demand for solar power generation. In addition, a reliance on imported oil and gas resources for power and increasing environmental consciousness have led to a strong government focus on the development of renewable energy, especially solar power. In the twelfth five-year planning period (2011 to 2015), the State Energy Administration aims to take the installed capacity of solar power generation from 860 megawatts to 21 gigawatts.... purchase to read more

Solar power plants in Inner Mongolia account for an estimated 15.5% of the total. A large amount of these solar power plants are of large-scale and are divided into several phases. Inner Mongolia is abundant in solar energy. The region also has vast, plain areas where it is advantageous to install solar power equipment. The technically exploitable capacity in Inner Mongolia is about 150 million KW, accounting for half of China's total. Increasing government assistance and subsidies on solar power and the gradual reduction in price of solar power also promote the establishment of solar power plants in this region. According to China's twelfth five-year plan, total installed capacity of PV plants in Inner Mongolia will reach 800 MW till 2015... purchase to read more
