China to build world's largest solar power base
China's 10 US-listed solar power manufacturers could face new challenges as new international players enter the market, said Todd G. Glass, energy specialist with the law firm, Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati
China's first demonstration project integrating wind power, photovoltaic power and power storage was recently established in Zhangbei, northern China's Hebei province with a planned total investment of over 8 billion yuan. Upon completion, it will become the world's largest solar power base and experimental center for the complementary generation of wind and photovoltaic power. It will also be China's first test base for the centralized output of wind power over 1 gigawatt. The project will have an installed capacity to generate 300 megawatts of wind power, 100 megawatts of solar power and 75 megawatts of chemical energy storage.
