China: Subsidy Scheme for Energy-Efficient Products

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on November 5, 2012

The Chinese government is taking further steps to consolidate the market and improve quality. The National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) and China’s Ministry of Finance have launched a new initiative to support the distribution of high-efficiency solar water heaters (SWH). Since 1 June 2012, SWH with sizes between 80 and 600 litres have been subsidised at different rates, which vary between Renminbi (RMB) 100 and 550 (see the table below). Eligible systems must fulfil level 1 or 2 of the new China Energy Label (see figure). The subsidy scheme is part of a promotion campaign for “energy-saving products”, which also includes other renewable technologies, such as small wind mills or photovoltaic generators. It will run for one year until 31 May 2013.
