China added 5.04 gigawatts (GW) of photovoltaic (PV) power generation capacity in the first three months of 2015, the National Energy Administration (NEA) said on Monday.

The amount includes 4.38 GW from PV power stations and 0.66 GW from distributed PV power projects, according to NEA figures.

China's cumulative installed capacity for solar PV power reached 33.12 GW by the end of March, with 27.79 GW from PV power stations and 5.33 GW from distributed PV power projects.

The first quarter saw total PV power generation reach 8 billion kilowatt-hour (KWH).

China has been working to increase its share of non-fossil fuels in the power matrix, including hydropower, wind power, solar power and nuclear power.

The State Council released an action plan on energy development for 2014-2020 last November, promising more efficient, self-sufficient, green and innovative energy production and consumption. Endit
