Raft of measures

As such, the authorities have rolled out a raft of measures to significantly move China's installed capacity of wind and solar power toward a low-carbon, secure and efficient energy mix.

In a national action plan, the government pledged to accelerate construction of large wind power and photovoltaic bases in deserts. In the meantime, it will encourage distributed PV power generation in villages and industrial parks, and on the roofs of buildings.

By 2025, half of all new public buildings will have solar power facilities on their roofs, it said.

To promote the development of distributed PV power generation, central and local governments have issued a series of supporting policies and plans.

The 14th Five-Year Plan for Energy Development in Chongqing (2021-25) said the city government will promote the construction of rooftop PV systems across the entire municipality. It will also accelerate the promotion and utilization of distributed PV systems on rooftops in industrial parks, economic development zones and public buildings.

By 2025, the proportion of installed capacity of clean energy in Chongqing is set to reach 50 percent of the city's total.

"Many people think that Chongqing is not an ideal place to develop photovoltaic energy due to its foggy weather," said Shen Zhenghua, president of Chongqing Hiten Energy, a leading manufacturer of PV equipment. "However, I believe that Chongqing has a huge potential to make use of solar power."
