The deal comes as the Chinese government aims to boost renewable energy generating capacity in the country, with plans to generate at least 10,000 MW of solar energy and 20,000 MW of wind power by 2020.

In a statement, eSolar said equipment maker China Shandong Penglai Electric Power Equipment Manufacturing Co was developing solar thermal plants using eSolar’s technology.

It did not disclose financial details of the deal, but analysts said the 2,000 MW project was the largest of its kind in China and could easily be worth more than $5 billion.
