"Private enterprises and private entrepreneurs are our own people." although this sentence is very simple, it makes me feel extremely warm and steadfast. On November 1st, at the forum of private enterprises held in Beijing, leaders of the state, leaders from various departments and private entrepreneurs from all walks of life in China gathered to discuss the development of China's private economy. Liu Hanyuan, chairman of Tongwei group's board of directors, made a statement as one of the 10 entrepreneurs.

"China is a big country using fossil fuels such as coal and petroleum. In recent years, environmental problems such as fog and haze have been highlighted. It is urgent to promote the energy revolution in China. At the same time, China's photovoltaic industry is developing rapidly. In 2017, its output value exceeded 500 billion yuan, occupying more than 70% of the world's share. The scale is the world's largest. China's photovoltaic industry is riding the dust and is far ahead of the United States, Europe, Japan and South Korea, becoming one of the "national business cards". Liu Hanyuan introduced Tongwei group from the beginning of the agricultural and animal husbandry industry has been 36 years, especially in the past ten years has become the main participant in the global photovoltaic industry.

"But at present, China's photovoltaic industry is facing some difficulties and problems." Liu Hanyuan introduced that in May 31st, the relevant departments suddenly issued a notice to reduce the scale of photovoltaic power generation to below 1/3 in the second half of the year, and demanded immediate implementation in June 1st, bringing systemic risk. The new energy listed company continued to limit its market value and lost about 300000000000 yuan in market value. Many enterprises were forced to stop production, and the assets of the shutdowns were over 200 billion yuan, and the industry suffered heavy losses. In addition, the current tax and industrial policies can not meet the future development needs of China's photovoltaic industry.

"At present, China's PV installed capacity has reached 130 million kilowatts at the end of 2017, and the goal of achieving non fossil energy consumption in 2020 is 20%, 30% in 2030 and 50% in 2050. Our goal setting should be more forward-looking." At the symposium, Liu Hanyuan suggested, "at the same time, we need to reduce tax and fees for renewable energy, and we can not afford subsidies in the next 2-3 years. The cost of electricity is equivalent to that of coal. Photovoltaic power generation projects only need half a year or so from project approval to completion and commissioning, which not only speeds up energy transformation but also drives green investment, and can play a role of steady growth.

"In the transition from fossil energy to clean energy, China has already taken the lead. Now China occupies the 70% market share of photovoltaic power generation in the world, and the gap is widening." Liu Hanyuan said.

"10 years ago, photovoltaic power generation cost per kilowatt is 30 thousand yuan to 50 thousand yuan, today is 3 thousand yuan to 5 thousand yuan, 3 years later it will drop more than 30%, which means that photovoltaic power generation cost is lower than coal." Liu Hanyuan said, through the "fishing and light integration" mode, at present, an acre of fish pond in addition to fish can also bring the equivalent of 15 to 20 tons of oil equivalent clean energy. "At the same time, our manufacturing cost of polycrystalline silicon and battery chips has reached the world's leading level."

Reporters learned that in Sichuan Province, the main body of the private economy market ranked sixth in the provinces and cities nationwide. In the past five years, the contribution rate to the GDP growth of the province reached 62.4%, and the employment of the private enterprises accounted for 92.8% of the urban employment.
