Anders will present an overview of distributed solar in China, with a focus on examining the particular obstacles that have prevented the country from achieving its ambitious 2014 solar targets so far. Overcoming those challenges will require further policy action oriented towards China’s particular situation and a change of mindset at solar companies as well.
 
China’s distributed solar market is the fastest growing in the world with increasingly supportive incentives, financing and installed cost structures. Rosie will present considerations from the customer perspective, including what is driving industrial and commercial users of energy to integrate solar into their operations? Exactly who are these main customer groups and how are their needs shaping changes in the industry globally and in China? This talk will explore customer drivers for adoption, perceived challenges and two UGE case studies in China.
