In recent years,with the rapid growth of the installed capacity of solar PV in China, the rate of idle solar PV capacity has gone up again since the difficulty in connecting all solar power generation to the grid. Solar PV in china have a large space for development during the "13th FiveYear Plan"period. The government's priority is to address the challenge related to the integration of large quantities of solar energy. In line with the country's electric power sector reform, the most cost-effective solution is to implement quotas for renewable energy development. The future of developing solution will enable the development of distributed solar and local consumption. However,large-scale distributed PV will require upgrade in energy storagetechnology and cost reduction. Energy storage technology is looking forward to the strong support at national strategic level.
