In H1 2018, newly installed PV capacity in China was 24,306 MW, essentially the same as in the same period last year. Of this, utility scale PV power plant installations were 12,062 MW, down 30% on the same period last year;installations of distributed PV were 12,244 MW, an increase of 72% YoY。

By the end of June 2018, nationwide PV generation capacity reached 154.51 GW, of which 112.6 GW of utility scale PV power plants, and 41.90 GW distributed PV。PV power generation in the first half of 2018 was 82.39 TWh, an increase of 59% YoY;the curtailment rate was 3.6%, down 3.2 percentage points YoY。curtailment occurred mainly in Xinjiang and Gansu. In Xinjiang (excluding XPCC) curtailment of PV was 1350 GWh, a curtailment rate of 20%, down 6.1 percentage points YoY;In Gansu curtailment of PV was 590 GWh, a curtailment rate of 11%, down 11 percentage points YoY。

Regarding the distribution of the newly installed capacity: North China added 6,116 MW, an increase of 47% YoY, and accounting for 25.2% of nationwide installations;Northeast China added 2,064 MW, down 4% YoY, and accounting for 8.5% of nationwide installations;East China added 6,218 MW, down 25% YoY, and accounting for 25.6% of nationwide installations;Central China added 3,878 MW, down 8% YoY, and accounting for 15.9% of nationwide installations;Northwest China added 4,120 MW, down 1% YoY, and accounting for 17.0% of nationwide installations;Southern China added 1,918 MW, an increase of 33% YoY, and accounting for 7.9% of nationwide installations。The development of distributed PV continued to maintain rapid growth. Over the first half of 2018, with newly installed capacity exceeding 1,000 MW in the four provinces of Shandong, Zhejiang, Henan and Jiangsu, which together accounted for 52.6% of nationwide installations of distributed PV。
