In its latest move to advance the deep integration of energy technology and modern information technology, China has kicked off a new round of smart photovoltaic demonstration campaign.

It aims to cultivate a batch of smart photovoltaic demonstration enterprises which can provide advanced and mature smart photovoltaic products, services, system platforms or integrated solutions.

A batch of smart photovoltaic projects will be constructed, according to a notice jointly released by five government bodies, including the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development.

Priority will be given to such fields as solar energy and storage integration, building photovoltaics, photovoltaic greenization, and advanced photovoltaic products.

The applications of smart photovoltaics in the fields of communications and transportation, agriculture and rural areas, and new-type infrastructure are also high on the demonstration list.

Incentive measures for eligible enterprises will be rolled out later by relevant departments, according to the notice.

The campaign is expected to further accelerate the industry application of smart photovoltaics and speed up the progress of smart photovoltaic technology.

It is a follow-up move to a five-year action plan focusing on smart photovoltaic industry innovation and development, which was jointly released by the five government bodies in 2021.

According to the plan, by 2025, the construction of the smart photovoltaic industrial ecosystem will be basically completed, and the industry's integration with the new-generation information technology will be gradually deepened.

Latest statistics from National Energy Administration (NEA) show that by the end of September, China's installed capacity of distributed photovoltaic power generated by households had reached about 105 million kilowatts, covering more than five million households in the country's rural areas.

In recent years, China's distributed photovoltaic power generated by households has developed rapidly, promoting the green transformation of energy as well as driving the growth of farmers' incomes, according to NEA.
