Clenergy plans 150MW of PV in China

PV mounting systems specialist Clenergy and the Xiamen National Hi-Tech Entrepreneurship Centre have agreed to build 150MW of commercial rooftop capacity in southeastern China over the next three years.

The framework agreement also includes plans to collaborate on the development of commercial arrays and utility-scale projects throughout Fujian province. 

The two sides plan to start with a rooftop installation in the city of Xiamen, followed by projects at transportation hubs, convention centres and other public facilities.

Clenergy, a Chinese-Australian venture based in Xiamen, says it is determined to play a leading role in the development of distributed PV projects, a key Chinese government priority.

This year, the National Energy Administration (NEA) wants distributed generation to account for 60% of its 10GW solar growth target.
