At the show, pv magazine took the opportunity to speak with leading industry experts about what to expect from China as 2017 continues to unfold.
Installation predictions from top industry analysts continue to vary, with some expecting a slight downturn to around 30 GW compared to 2016’s 34 GW, and others predicting even further growth from the world’s number one PV player this year.
One area where there has been some consensus though, is that China is branching out from the enormous ground mount projects seen there so far. New business models increasingly incorporate PV in combination with agriculture or fish farms, and he country’s rooftop segment could see major growth in 2017.
