The US has accepted China’s requests for consultations on its 30% import tariffs on solar cells and modules as well as its renewable energy subsidies.
China made the request on 14 August, while filing a complaint at the World Trade Organisation (WTO) against the two US renewable energy policies, claiming that they distort the global PV market – a move which came as part of a wider trade battle between the two global powers.
China’s Ministry of Commerce said these US policies “have seriously damaged China's trade interests".
A communication from the delegation of the US, posted on 28 August, stated: “We stand ready to confer with officials from your mission on a mutually convenient date for these consultations.”
Now in its sixth successful year, Solar & Storage Finance USA is the only event which looks at raising capital for solar, storage and collocated solar and storage projects in the USA. The conference will help delegates understand how providers are evolving propositions for storage and how they can access capital for standalone solar or storage, and co-located projects. Meet debt providers, funders, utilities, corporate off takers and blue chip energy firms with capital to invest and developers with credible pipelines.
