111 CSP projects with total capacity of 9GW took part in the application of the 1st batch of 1.349GW China 20 CSP pilot projects in September 2016. Till now, two years have passed, China official National Energy Administration indicated that according to the construction status of the 1st batch of CSP pilot projects, China would launch the 2nd batch of pilot projects in future.
As CSP Focus reported earlier, some companies had already actively signed CSP project development agreements with local governments, and project sites were mainly selected in some high DNI western cities like Delingha, Hami, Yumeng, Akesai and Golmud.

And the above-mentioned Report also wrapped up the detailed information of the 19 CSP projects totalling 2GW in Hami City. Of all the 2 GW CSP capacity, 1.3 GW take tower technology, 600 MW parabolic trough, and 100 MW Fresnel. All 20 companies have signed feasibility study agreements and 15 companies started the tasks. As one of China key CSP project construction cities, Hami planned to achieve 1.5GW CSP installed capacity in the 13th Five-year (by 2020) and 20GW in the 15th Five-year (2030).
Northwest Electric Power Design Institute Co., Ltd. of China Power Engineering Consulting Group (shorted as NWEPDI), gets involved in around half of all the CSP projects in China under construction or planning, is definitely a pioneer in China CSP industry. Together with CSP Focus, NWEPDI will co-organize CSP Focus Innovation 2018（Oct.25-26, China）conferen
