Chinese PV Industry Brief: China’s cumulative PV capacity tops 660 GW


China's NEA said the nation's cumulative installed PV capacity reached 660 GW at the end of March. In the first three months of this year, the country added 45.74 GW of new PV systems, with 9.02 GW deployed in March alone. By comparison, China deployed just 33.66 GW of new PV capacity in the first quarter of 2023.

DKEM has responded to recent investor queries by stating that its photovoltaic conductive silver paste business achieved sales of 1713.62 tons in 2023. Shipments of conductive silver paste products in n-type TOPCon cells reached 1008.48 tons, positioning the company as the industry's first TOPCon paste seller to surpass 1,000 tons. The silver paste manufacturer said that with the rapid growth of n-type TOPCon cells, its business is still undergoing a phase of rapid expansion.

Boviet Solar, a wholly owned subsidiary of Ningbo-based Boway Alloy, said it will increase the capacity of its TOPCon solar cell factory project in the United States from 2 GW to 4 GW. Previously, Boway Alloy planned to invest in a 3 GW TOPCon solar cell expansion project in Vietnam and a 2 GW factory in the United States, with an estimated total investment of CNY 1.9 billion ($262 million). Following the additional construction of the US solar cell factor, the investment amount is set to increase to CNY 3.15 billion.
