China’s photovoltaic industry is now the world’s largest with an annual capacity of 1,100MW, Wang Wei, head of the China Renewable Energy Office, told an ongoing forum organized by the China Solar Power Photovoltaic Industry Research & Cooperation Alliance. Wang said the domestic photovoltaic sector now has more than 40 material builders, 70 silicon makers, 30 solar cell makers and more than 500 other related companies, the Securities Times reported.
