“Nonsensical defence”


Europe’s solar industry should think about cooperating with China instead of placing import tariffs on Chinese PV products, writes Stephan Scheuer in an op-ed for Handelsblatt. The tariffs disadvantage consumers in Europe and slow down the solar expansion because prices for PV modules are kept artificially high, he argues. European companies should use their specialised know-how in the areas of grid connections and steering of PV installations to cooperate with China and thereby find new business opportunities abroad.
