The coronavirus outbreak is impacting the energy sector as due to factory shutdowns and production disruptions, exports of solar panels and other components out of China are being delayed, disrupting the supply chain of the solar power industries and affecting solar projects in Asia. India, for example, already experiences delays in solar projects as imports of solar panels and solar modules from China are being delayed because of the coronavirus outbreak. India, which imports 90 percent of the solar panels and modules from China and Malaysia, braces for weeks-long delays in procurement, which is pushing commissioning deadlines for solar projects further out

Many manufacturing sites in China have not resumed production of solar panels and other components after the extended Lunar New Year holiday break. Indian developers who buy solar components on a spot basis and need those panels and other parts within weeks will see an impact from the delayed shipments

The coronavirus outbreak will impact the global solar supply chain, energy consultancy Wood Mackenzie said this week, as carried by Renews. Factories outside China which use Chinese imports to assemble solar modules will be impacted by the reduced production and exports out of China due to the virus, according to WoodMac’s senior analyst in the energy transition research team, Xiaojing Sun.
