CLIMATE SPECTATOR: Risking a clean break in US-China relations

The world has much to gain through US and Chinese clean energy cooperation, and an impending ruling on the countries' solar trade dispute will have significant ramifications.

The US Department of Commerce next month is expected to issue a critical ruling on one of the biggest trade cases to hit the US-China energy relationship in recent years. Seven US solar companies claim that the Chinese government unfairly subsidises Chinese solar panel manufacturers to enable those companies to sell their products at below-market prices and drive US competitors out of the market. The seven companies support subsidy and dumping petitions filed by SolarWorld Industries America Inc against Chinese solar imports in October that ask the Commerce Department to levy triple-digit tariffs on solar cells and modules imported from China.
