As demand for energy grows and principal fossil energies are increasingly exhausted, the importance and urgency of the development of renewable energies are becoming abundantly clear while more and more attention is being focused on the remaining life of the world’s fossil energy reserve. Against the backdrop of deteriorating global warming and skyrocketing oil prices, application of renewable energies has attracted more attention than ever before. Plus the return of consciousness of environment protection, every government in the world started to bring plans of reducing carbon emission into effect. As a result, every government began to look for alternative energies, among which solar energy is the best choice that can be used for sustainable development, because it is a clean natural energy that is inexhaustible and pollution-free.
This paper will explore how China is different from other advanced countries in terms of driving the photovoltaic industry through enabling polices and incentive programs implemented by the government. Due to lack of industrial maturity at that time, they had to, for the most part, adopt the strategy of vertical integration as well as an operation model centered on self-sufficiency in order to stay competitive. In the short term, the key to competitiveness in the solar energy photovoltaic industry will be cost reduction, and a good response strategy should contain the following 4 elements: enlarged economy of scale, enhanced photo-electronic conversion efficiency, increased savings on raw materials used, and ensured supply of raw materials from upstream sources. For the long run, competitive advantages must be maintained through research and development of new materials and technologies in order to protect against disruptive innovations.
