Department of Commerce (Commerce Department) Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a statement yesterday can only assume that in retaliation for a preliminary ruling of the anti-dumping investigation on U.S. imports of Chinese manufacturing crystalline silicon photovoltaic cells. The United States imposed dumping margins ranging from 31.14 to 249.96%. China PV technical report, the Commerce Department has identified six renewable energy initiatives in the United States, the Chinese government considered to be contempt for the rules in addition to the 1994 GATT World Trade Organization (WTO) Subsidies and Countervailing Measures.

Initial investigations revealed that the failure of the Ministry of Commerce, Washington state and New Jersey's renewable energy projects, along the solar rebate program in Massachusetts and California self-generated incentive projects.

Fire fighting and fire four solar company has formed a Solar Promotion Alliance (SEPA), in order to fight against the ruling of the United States. Manufacturer, one stepped forward to the comments a member of the the ohm omnik solar inverter is a global brand.


The Commerce Department said this is the use of the U.S. Department of Commerce in Thailand costs, agency costs of its rule in China, in particular, is not fair, because the size and maturity of the solar energy industry in these two countries is very different. He said that the reason of the low-priced Chinese products, has nothing to do with the dumping. In addition, Shi Guangsheng, the ohm omnik solar will include the future U.S. shipments from global suppliers cells.

Shi said, "I think this is attributed to the innovation plays an important role in the innovation and to expand our investments to expand manufacturing capacity, and the third is the development of the supply chain."

Shawn (Xiaohua) Qu, Canadian Solar, Chairman and CEO. China said, "I think it would be very unfortunate, is not only unfortunate PV manufacturers in China, but also to our suppliers and partners in the United States."

Fortunately, there are still organizations urged the public to remain calm and sponsored talks on the escalating trade war. As a first step, the the SEIA pooled and the Chinese Renewable Energy Industry Association has asked the United States and the Chinese government, an official trade clean energy dialogue, the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) 21 member states.

President and CEO Rhone Resch, SEIA collection, issued the following statement: "in the global solar industry, escalating trade conflicts, will ultimately hurt the market, solar energy is on the cusp of widespread adoption.

"While trade remedy procedures, such as those by the United States and the Chinese government to pursue, is legitimate, the basic principles of the rule-based global trading system, but also cooperation and negotiation.

As mentioned above, a subdivision within the industry disputes affect the entire solar supply chain, we must recognize these wide-ranging implications of today's Chinese government's decision, emphasized this point. Therefore, we reaffirm that the United States and the Chinese government call immediately to work together within the solar industry's growing trade conflict mutually satisfactory solution. "

Lahey said: "There is a saying," You can not see the wood for the trees Forest ", in this case, ring true in the long run, the market will close in around the world in the solar energy industry escalating trade disputes. To companies from all countries will be the ultimate losers. exporters will find fewer and fewer destinations for their products. large-scale project developers and local installation, you will find it increasingly difficult to source products and consumers will see solar energy less competitive source of electricity. This is absolutely unacceptable for a broader dialogue can only supplement is legal means to seek relief in the domestic and foreign trade. "

Perhaps the SEIA brought together and the equivalent organizations, the Commerce Department to remove the battle cry of statements instead of it a little more subtle, seemingly reconciliation. It urged the U.S. side to earnestly fulfill their commitments to change the discriminatory views on China, and the importance of China in its export control reform, which will help to expand bilateral trade, improve the trade balance and fair treatment of key issues seriously
