Akcome Technology has announced a planned investment of CNY 2.1 billion ($295 million) in fixed assets to expand its HJT cell capacity by 4.6 GW, with the first production line scheduled for completion in January 2024. Currently, Akcome's Suzhou, Ganzhou, Huzhou, and Zhoushan production bases have a total capacity of 3.2 GW of HJT cells, 0.8 GW of passivated emitter and rear contact (PERC) capacity, and 10.4 GW of solar panels. Despite on-hand orders for 2.95 GW of HJT modules, the company's current HJT cell production capacity falls short of meeting demand for new orders.

Daqo New Energy has announced plans to add new production capacity, including silicon metal, in Shihezi, in China's Xinjiang region. It plans to invest a total of CNY 15 billion.

The company said that implementation hinges on market conditions, shareholder approval, government filings and approvals, and energy consumption approvals.

Power Construction Corp. of China has connected a floating solar plant to the grid at the Cirata Reservoir in Indonesia. It is expected to generate up to 300,000 MWh per year.
