China added 9.9 gigawatts (GW) of photovoltaic (PV) power-generation capacity in the first nine months of 2015, the National Energy Administration (NEA) said on Tuesday.

The amount includes 8.32 GW from PV power stations and 1.58 GW from distributed PV power projects, according to NEA figures.

China's cumulative-installed capacity for solar PV power hit 37.95 GW by the end of September, with 31.70 GW from PV power stations and 6.25 GW from distributed PV power projects.

The first three quarters saw total PV power generation reach 30.6 billion kilowatt-hour (kWh).

The NEA data also showed China had 24.14 million kilowatts (KW) of nuclear power capacity by the end of September, and wind power capacity hit 108 GW.

By the end of 2020, China aims to increase non-fossil energy to 15 percent of total primary energy consumption, and sharply enhance the ratio of renewable energy in production.

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.
