Faced with the increasingly fierce international competition, climate change and other global challenges, it is more important for Chinese government to take the analysis on patent intelligence of solar energy technology one step further. Based on Innography patent information retrieval platform, this paper analyzed the development trend of global solar energy patent and hot and core technology layout from the aspect of patent country, application country, IPC distribution, patent rights and patent strength. The further analysis focused on the core patent concentration of countries and institutions in the world using patent data mining technology. A comparative study was conducted on the technology layout in Chinese market between local technology developers and global technology developers. It is of great interest to discover the advantages and disadvantages of China's solar energy technology in global competition, on which this paper evaluated from the competitive environment, competitors, competitive technology and international strategy. In addition, this paper highlighted some implications especially for speed up technological innovation and industrial upgrading in order to enhance the international competitiveness of China's solar energy industry.
