RMB 5 trillion yuan investment opportunities in new energy (green energy) in China

In the next 10 years, China will open the markets to attract foreign investment on green energy (renewable power, alternative energy). The cumulative increase in direct investment will be RMB 5 trillion yuan. The development of new energy (clean power, renewable power, alternative energy) industry, will enable significant acceleration of structural adjustment of domestic energy resources, also strategic transformation of more Central Enterprises.

Long-awaited "new energy development plan" will soon be settled. Recently, Jiang Bing said, who is The Secretary of the general office of National Energy Administration of China, new energy (green power, clean power, renewable power, alternative energy) development plan has been prepared and is ready to be reported in accordance with the procedures and approval.

Solar Power in Bulgaria


There are many old solar panel installations in Bulgaria, especially along the Black Sea coast and due to the growth and transformation of the region due to tourism; the Government is investigating ways to encourage home owners and business users to take advantage of these installations. Many of these systems have been left in a poor neglected state and have been unused for an extended period of time. Even though government incentives are now available for solar installations, the country’s financial institutions have maintained a very strict lending criterion. This rules out a high percentage of the countries home-owners due to the documented financial problems within the country.

This financial situation is one of the major reasons why the Solar Energy market has not looked so favorable in Bulgaria even though parts of Bulgaria do have a climate which ideally lends itself to the solar panel market. With the cost of rejuvenating the present solar panel projects within the country it is estimated that the period of time required to recoup the initial investment for an average size solar system would take approximately 8 years. Together with the financial limitations many investors are reluctant to get involved and find alternative funding methods. The costs of the newer projects are relatively cheap and the average cost of a system is $250 to $290 per square meter which is comparatively low due to the availability and the present technology so this adds to the investment capital making the older project cost prohibitive.
