2015 PV installations utility and distributed by province
By the end of 2015, China's cumulative installed capacity of PV was 43.18 GW, becoming the country with the largest PV generation capacity globally。Of this, 37.12 GW were of PV power plants, and 6.06 GW of distributed PV, annual power generation was 39.2 TWh。Newly installed capacity in 2015 was 15.13 GW, achieving the 2015 goal of 15 GW of new installations. This accounted for more than a quarter of new installations globally, and for a third of domestic PV module production, provide effective market support for China's PV manufacturing industry。Operating conditions are good in most of the country, with a national annual average productivity of 1133 full-load hours. PV curtailment was more serious in the Northwest, with 1061 hours of productivity and 31% curtailment in Gansu；Annual average productivity in Xinjiang was 1042 hours, with 26% curtailment。For specific statistics, see the attached table。
A common development pattern of PV power generation appeared in eastern, central and western China。In the East and Central regions six provinces have cumulative installed capacity of over 1 GW: Jiangsu (4.22 GW), Hebei (2.39 GW), Zhejiang (1.64 GW), Shandong (1.33 GW), Anhui (1.21 GW) and Shanxi (1.13 GW)。Xinjiang (including XPCC), Inner Mongolia and Jiangsu ranked as the top three for newly installed capacity, with 2.1 GW, 1.87 GW and 1.65 GW, respectively。Distributed PV generation capacity is largest in Zhejiang (1.21 GW), Jiangsu (1.19 GW) and Guangdong (570 MW)。
