Abstract [en]

This report’s main objective is to examine the potential electricity yield and cost for integrating renewable energy technologies into the Sino-Swedish eco-city, a part of the Taihu New City in Wuxi, a city in the Jiangsu province, China. The renewable energy technology to be implemented is solar photovoltaics.

 

The report begins with presenting the current role of the renewable energy industry in China and continues with a study on the applications, economic and market aspects of solar photovoltaics. To get a good idea of how solar energy can be integrated on a larger scale, case-studies of other ecocities, have also been carried out.

 

The results presented in the latter parts of the report indicate that there is a good energy yield potential with solar photovoltaics in the eco-city, but the cost competitiveness of installing a solar photovoltaics system in the eco-city is highly dependent on financial incentives. The levelized cost of the electricity generated by solar photovoltaics, needs to be decreased by around 91% to be at grid parity.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med rapporten är att undersöka vad den potentiella elektricitetsproduktionen samt kostnaden är för att installera förnyelsebara energikällor i den svensk-kinesiska ekostaden i New Taihu City, som är belägen i Wuxi, Kina. Den förnyelsebara energiteknologin som ska implementeras är solceller.

 

Rapporten börjar med att presentera förnyelsebara energikällors nuvarande marknadsläge i Kina och fortsätter med en studie av solceller och dess tillämpningar och ekonomiska och  marknadsmässiga aspekter. For att få en bättre bild av hur solceller kan bli integrerad i en store skala har fallundersökningar av andra städer som har lyckats med detta gjorts.

 

Resultaten som presenteras i den senare delen av rapporten tyder på att det finns bra avkastningspotential i ekostaden med solceller. Men rent kostnadsmässigt är implementeringen av  solceller mycket beroende av ekonomiska incitament från den kinesiska staten.

 

For att priset för elektriciteten producerad med solceller ska kunna vara onkurrenskraftig måste 91% av solcellernas elektricitetspris sänkas för att kunna komma i närheten av Wuxis elpris.
