Last week, Biden, one of the candidates for the president of the United States, said that if he is elected president of the United States, a budget of $2 trillion will be allocated for the construction of new energy industries and infrastructure.
Recently, a report entitled “One day difference, Biden’s election will trigger the acceleration of solar energy development”, stated that Biden will vigorously develop the solar power generation industry after his election, and the total installed capacity by 2030 will be close to the level of 500GW. Even if the parliament’s performance is not very positive, it is expected to reach the level of 450GW. According to forecasts, it will become the world’s second largest photovoltaic market after China. This is definitely beneficial to the United States, which is a major energy consumer. Policy.
For comparison, the global installed capacity of photovoltaics in 2019 was 114.9GW, and the cumulative installed capacity reached 627GW, of which my country’s total installed capacity reached 204.3GW, accounting for nearly one-third of the global installed capacity, but there is still a certain gap from 500GW. . It is worth noting that my country’s newly installed photovoltaic capacity has been declining in recent years. In 2017, it added 53GW, dropped to 43.4GW in 2018, and further dropped to 30.1GW in 2019, while the overseas market is growing.
Although the 14th Five-Year Plan has not yet been released, judging from the previously released planning recommendations, photovoltaic power generation, which belongs to renewable energy, will still be the focus of future development. The newly installed photovoltaic capacity is bound to increase again. By then, China and the United States These countries will go hand in hand in photovoltaic installed capacity and contribute more to the cause of renewable energy and environmental protection.
