State highly recognised the development of photovoltaic industry will still support enterprises and institutions to declare relevant subsidies


The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology released on the 12th "on the second session of the thirteenth National People's Congress, No. 6283, the reply to the proposal," said on the acceleration of photovoltaic standardisation to develop incentives for standardisation, the next step, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology will continue to support the photovoltaic field of eligible enterprises and institutions in accordance with the procedures for the declaration of international standard-setting funding grants. Encourage social capital in a market-oriented way to set up a special fund for standardisation, explore the establishment of standard innovation financing credit enhancement system, the formation of market-oriented, diversified input mechanism to support the development of standardisation innovation.

  Reply to Proposal No. 6283 of the Second Session of the Thirteenth National People's Congress

  Representative Chen Kangping:

  Your proposal on accelerating the construction of photovoltaic standardisation has been received, and the reply is as follows:

  Photovoltaic industry is a sunrise industry based on semiconductor technology and new energy demand that has emerged and developed rapidly, and it is also one of the core fields for realising green development and promoting energy revolution. As you said, at present, China's photovoltaic industry is developing rapidly, the output of each link of the industrial chain ranks first in the world, and the new grid-connected installed capacity and the cumulative grid-connected installed capacity ranked first in the world for many years in a row, and maintains a sustained high-speed growth. However, it is undeniable that the PV field standards revision work can not adapt to the speed of development of the PV industry, the industry urgently need to speed up the key standards revision to support the transformation and upgrading of the PV industry development.

  I. Suggestions on the approval process of transparent industry standards

  The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology attaches great importance to the standardisation work in the field of photovoltaic, in accordance with the "National Professional Standardization Technical Committee Management Measures" "Ministry of Industry and Information Technology Interim Measures for the Management of Industry Standard Formulation" requirements, strict standards formulation, quarterly standard projects, and regularly promote the standard approval and release work. We have built an electronic information technology standardisation service platform, improved the functions of standard project, drafting, soliciting opinions, sending for review and approval, and realised the transparency and openness of information in the whole process of standard making and revision.

  As a next step, we will make full use of information technology to strengthen the management of the whole life cycle of standards, enhance the supervision of various aspects of standard making and revision, shorten the cycle of standard making, and continuously improve the efficiency of standard making.

  II. Suggestions on Formulating Incentive Standards

  In recent years, the central government has continuously increased its financial support for standardisation work. in 2017, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology revised and implemented the Implementing Rules for Funding Subsidies for the Development of International Standards in the Industrial and Communications Industry, giving different amounts of funding subsidies in accordance with the development progress of international standard projects, supporting eight international standards in the field of photovoltaics to obtain financial support. Implementing the Implementing Opinions on Cultivating and Developing Group Standards in the Industrial and Communications Industry, we supported five PV association standards to be shortlisted on the list of "100 Group Standards Application Demonstration Projects" in 2018, guiding the PV industry to improve its quality and cultivate its brand.

  As a next step, we will continue to support eligible enterprises and institutions in the field of photovoltaics to declare international standard-setting funding subsidies in accordance with procedures. Encourage social capital to set up standardisation special fund in a market-oriented way, explore the establishment of standard innovation financing credit enhancement system, the formation of market-oriented, diversified input mechanism to support the development of standardisation innovation.

  Suggestions on analysing and learning from overseas experience

  Based on the current situation of domestic PV industry technology and standards, drawing on international standardisation development experience, in 2017, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology formulated and released the "Comprehensive Standardization Technical System for Solar Photovoltaic Industry". Combined with the development of PV technology and market demand, we actively carry out the standard of PV cell and module testing methods, the key technical standards for water-based PV and distributed PV, as well as the study of forward-looking standards such as intelligent PV products and PV product recycling, and strive to enhance the role of standards in guiding, regulating, leading and safeguarding the development of the industry.

  The next step is to continue to improve the PV standard system. According to the new requirements of building a modernised economic system and the new trend of technological and industrial development, the top-level design and overall planning of the standard system will be further strengthened, the combination of standards and industrial development will be strengthened, and the dynamic maintenance mechanism of the standard system will be established and improved. Focus on the research of intelligent PV standard system, the establishment of intelligent PV products and test methods, intelligent production and evaluation to the PV system intelligent operation and maintenance and other areas of the standard system.

  Secondly, accelerate the key standard system revision. Taking "Comprehensive Standardisation Technical System for Solar Photovoltaic Industry" as a guide, increase the basic general, test methods, smart PV products and other key technical standards formulation and revision, and continuously improve the quality and level of standard supply. Carry out a statistical survey on the transformation of international standards in the field of photovoltaic, conduct in-depth comparative analysis of China's standards and international standards, find weak links, increase the transformation of international standards, and enhance the consistency of domestic and international standards.

  Third, strengthen international standardisation work. Give full play to China's photovoltaic field of technical strength and industrial advantages, and effectively promote and encourage enterprises, institutions and experts to actively participate in and lead the development of international standards, international standardisation organisations to assume the leadership of technical institutions, and enhance the right to speak on international standards. Strengthen cooperation with countries along the "Belt and Road", jointly carry out the development of international standards for photovoltaics, and promote Chinese standards to "go out".

  Thank you for your interest in the development of China's PV industry, and we hope to receive more support and help from you in the future.
