US Solar Industry Leaders Testify before ITC on Chinese Silicon PV Dumping, Subsidies

October 5th, 2012 | by Andrew

Massive Chinese government subsidies have led to equally massive overcapacity and Chinese manufacturers' exports to the US, and that in turn's led to a rising tide of US solar bankruptcies and downsizing at a critical juncture in the global industry's development, US solar industry leaders and supporters testified. The Commerce Dept.'s much anticipated final determination on duties is right around the corner


EU Launches WTO Investigation into Chinese Silicon PV Dumping Allegations

September 7th, 2012 | by Andrew

A European Commission decision to impose anti-dumping duties would pose significant problems for China's silicon PV manufacturers, which now find themselves reeling from debt loads, a precipitous decline in prices (largely of their own making), and slowing demand as a result of the ongoing EU debt crisis and slow economic growth.


1H 2012 US Solar PV Installations Grow 120%; US Poised to be World’s 3rd-Largest Market

August 27th, 2012 | by Andrew

Solar PV installations more than doubled in the Americas in 1H 2012, with demand in the US leading the way. Rapid growth will accelerate in 2H 2012, according to an IMS report, making the US the third-largest market in the world. 1H 2012 results put paid to assertions that the US imposition of anti-dumping tariffs and countervailing duties on Chinese imports would stifle demand in the US, according to the industry association behind the litigation effort.


Solar PV Trade Disputes Escalate as German Group Files Dumping Charges against China

July 25th, 2012 | by Andrew

Solar PV trade disputes between China and its main trading partners are escalating, as a group of German solar companies, led by SolarWorld AG, filed a WTO anti-dumping petition with the European Commission. The filing heightens tensions and divisions among industry participants, who have been put under increasing pressure as a result of a massive build-up in solar PV supply and manufacturing capacity, the bulk of which has come from China.


China, Inc. Locked In on World Solar, Wind Manufacturing Domination

May 3rd, 2012 | by Andrew

China's new 12th Five-Year Plan clearly shows that rather than striving to comply with internationally agreed-upon trade rules, the Chinese government is intent on dominating solar PV and wind energy manufacturing globally. China's new plan will direct some $1.5 trillion into solar PV manufacturing export, with polysilicon, thin-film CIGS solar PV producers and equipment manufacturers now squarely in its sights


Support the Solar Industry, Boost the Economy

April 19th, 2012 | by Charis Michelsen

The Coalition for American Solar Manufacturing (CASM) published a survey of itself this week, stating that four of its founding manufacturers purchased upwards of $400 million in goods and services last year in an effort to keep American solar industry


US-China SolarTrade Dispute: The Case for CASM and US Manufacturing

January 20th, 2012 | by Andrew

The Coalition for American Solar Manufacturing's (CASM) filing of complaints with the US ITC and Dept. of Commerce has generated a maelstrom of debate and public relations activity that's divided the US solar power industry and rippled out far wider than the confines of the US' emerging solar power industry, and justifiably so. Clean Technica interviewed the Wiley, Rein partner in charge of representing SolarWorld Industries America and CASM's in its anti-dumping and countervailing duty petitions
