Recently, a distributed parity solar energy by the European Union EU Trade Commissioner Karel De Gucht "open letter", led to public attention. In a letter obtained more than 20 countries in Europe 700 Yu Jiaguang volt enterprise 1024 corporate executives agree and co-signed an open letter appears, the Commission final decision on the implementation of punitive tariffs, anti-dumping and anti-subsidy investigations on Chinese flexible solar panels European PV companies have a tremendous negative effect may hinder growth in the European solar industry.
Early as the "voice" of the European photovoltaic industry, as well as the European photovoltaic industry Chinese counterparts a "solidarity", can affect people hope to this "open letter" to be announced in June, the EU anti-dumping investigation of photovoltaic panels cutting results. The European Commission launched last September and November, respectively how to make solar panels in China anti-dumping, anti-subsidy investigation, on March 6 this year, the implementation of mandatory import registration of Chinese PV products.
The mandatory registration of imports is the face of all PV products than originally only for Chinese photovoltaic cells, glass range expanded. With mandatory registration date, the EU has established a period of retroactivity (compulsory registration date to the date of the final ruling) on imports of PV products in China, the EU proposed retrospective on the final ruling, the Chinese PV products need to pay the retroactive period punitive tax .
In accordance with the relevant laws and regulations of the European Union, the European Commission will be announced around June this year preliminary results of anti-dumping investigations and anti-subsidy investigations launched in November last year, still need to experience the survey period of 9-10 months. EU eventually taken to
mechanism, before we get to wait after the announcement of the preliminary
results in June. Clearly taken retrospectively, Executive retrospective will
have to wait until December, after the release of the final results. China
Thus, in June, the EU will announce the preliminary results of the anti-dumping investigation is important, not only related to the EU solar panels to China imposed punitive tariff rates will also be related to whether the EU PV companies in China to take a retrospective mechanism .
Today, the letter expressed the European photovoltaic industry "voice" of the open letter, just load from the reverse involving Chinese exports to the EU amounted to up to 21 billion euros (about $ 27.3 billion) business case glimmer of hope, but one trouble after another. Application should the EU Solar Glass Association (of EU PROSUN Glass), the EU originating in
solar glass countervailing investigation. China
