China’s Solar Power Growth to Soar in 2022 on Project Pipeline

  • Industry group sees installations between 75-90 gigawatts
  • Massive desert installations and rooftop solar driving growth

China is forecast to add record solar power in 2022 despite continued high material costs as the country pushes forward with a massive renewable build-out to reach its ambitious climate targets. 

About 75 to 90 gigawatts of solar power capacity will be installed this year, Wang Bohua, chairman of China Photovoltaic Industry Association, said Wednesday. Even the low case would be a massive increase over last year’s record haul of 54.93 gigawatts.
