On December 24, the National Energy Administration issued the notice of the comprehensive Department of the National Energy Administration on doing a good job in the preparation of the "13th five year plan" for solar energy development (hereinafter referred to as the notice), in which solar thermal power generation is mentioned as an important content, which means that solar thermal power generation will become China's & ldquo; The 13th five year plan; Important industries to be developed during the period. The notice points out that the competent energy departments of all provinces (regions and cities) can determine the main types of solar energy utilization according to the local actual situation, focusing on solar photovoltaic power generation and solar thermal utilization. Areas with solar thermal power generation project construction conditions should also include solar thermal power generation. The draft planning proposal shall include resource conditions, development status, facing situation, development objectives, key tasks and major projects. The planning period is 2016-2020, and the development goal is expected to 2030. The planning and research contents of solar thermal power generation include: key areas and scale of solar thermal power generation, site selection and construction conditions of key projects, technical route and technical and economic research, etc. The research contents of solar thermal utilization planning include: solar thermal utilization objectives, key areas, development mode, application and promotion methods and measures of urban and rural buildings, etc. Solar energy & ldquo; The 13th five year plan; The development plan is & ldquo; The 13th five year plan; The basic basis for promoting the sustainable development of solar energy industry in the new era is of great significance for expanding the solar energy utilization market, promoting technological progress and promoting the coordinated and healthy development of the industry. The notice requires the competent energy departments of all provinces (autonomous regions and municipalities) to strengthen the planning and research work related to the utilization of solar energy resources, development needs and development conditions in their respective regions, and study and put forward & ldquo; The 13th five year plan; During this period, the key tasks and major projects of solar energy utilization in this region need to be incorporated into the key contents of the national solar energy development plan to form the regional solar energy development & ldquo; The 13th five year plan; Planning proposal. At the same time, relevant research institutions and associations carry out solar energy development & ldquo; The 13th five year plan; Special research on planning to provide scientific basis for the preparation of overall planning. The special research involves three levels: photovoltaic power generation, photothermal power generation and solar thermal utilization. Among them, the special planning of solar thermal power generation focuses on the development planning of solar thermal power generation base and key regions, the technical route and technical and economic comparison of solar thermal power generation, the supporting policies of solar thermal power generation, and the capacity-building of solar thermal power generation industry chain. Special planning of solar thermal utilization, including research and proposal & ldquo; The 13th five year plan; The overall objectives and tasks of solar heat utilization during the period, and put forward the classified development objectives and regional layout in the fields of building hot water heating, industrial hot water, air conditioning and refrigeration; Research and put forward the technical development roadmap of solar thermal utilization in China; Put forward the development objectives, implementation plans and safeguard measures of technological innovation for key links such as medium and high temperature technology R & D, key equipment manufacturing, system integration technology and integration with conventional energy system; Analyze and compare the competitive advantages and disadvantages of Chinese and foreign products and systems, and compare the advantages and disadvantages of domestic and foreign manufacturing industries, and put forward & ldquo; The 13th five year plan; Objectives, tasks and safeguard measures to enhance industrial competitiveness during the period; Propose & ldquo; The 13th five year plan; During this period, improve the tasks, objectives and implementation steps of solar heat utilization standards, testing and certification system, and put forward policies and measures to strengthen product quality control and operation and maintenance system construction. In terms of specific schedule, the draft of planning proposal shall be completed by the end of March 2015, and the national solar energy development & ldquo; The 13th five year plan; The first draft of the plan shall be formed before the end of August 2015, which shall be issued and implemented after being approved according to the procedures. According to this progress, China's "13th five year plan for solar energy development" is expected to be officially released by the end of 2015, and photothermal power generation and solar thermal utilization are expected to become the focus, which will play a vital role in promoting the industrialization and commercial development of concentrated solar thermal utilization technology during the 13th Five Year Plan period. After the precipitation and momentum during the 12th Five Year Plan period, China's solar thermal power generation industry has basically completed the construction of industrial chain and technology accumulation, and some enterprises have also mastered some project development experience. 2015 is the last year of the 12th Five Year Plan. Although we have been unable to complete the original 1GW installation target, with the increasing attention of the government to the photothermal power generation industry and the issuance of substantive support policies, relying on the existing industrial foundation, China's photothermal power generation industry will also usher in an explosion during the 13th five year plan. In addition, it is worth paying special attention to that solar thermal utilization, as an important branch of the planning, was given special emphasis in the 13th five year plan for the first time, and was mentioned as a branch parallel to photovoltaic power generation and photothermal power generation. Cspplaza reporter consulted relevant persons of the National Energy Administration on this. It was learned that the 12th Five Year Plan for solar power generation issued in 2012 Heat utilization is not given guidance as a branch, but only mentioned by passing. The 13th five year plan includes heat utilization and pays special attention to it. The name of the plan is also changed to the broader "13th five year plan for solar energy development", which is also an important benefit to the medium and high temperature heat utilization industry of concentrating solar energy.
