On 31 May 2018, China’s National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), Ministry of Finance (MOF), and National Energy Administration (NEA) published a notice with the aim to curb escalating feed-in tariff payments by restricting the amount of new PV installations under national subsidy schemes.
The immediate impact is to bring the Chinese PV market to a halt, curbing the distributed PV (DPV) and ground-mount projects that aimed to secure the 2018 FiT levels. DPV projects installed after 2018 will have to rely fully on the benefits of self-consumption and any local support mechanisms. Ground-mount projects not able to complete under 2017 quota within June will have to wait until 2019 to secure possible new revenues, depending on future policy decisions. 
The following slides outline the impact that these changes will have on 2018 PV installations in China and the rest of the World.
