Panells solars

Avui (12 d'octubre) més de 400 empreses europees que cobreixen tots els estats membres han enviat a carta a la comissària comercial Cecilia Malmstrom, demanant-li que acabi amb les mesures comercials vigents des del 2012 sobre els mòduls i cèl·lules solars xineses.
Jochen Hauff, board director of SolarPower Europe representing BayWa r.e. renewable energy GmbH, one of the leaders of the initiative, said: “The volume of European companies opposed to the trade measures is staggering. Companies have signed from every member state, from all segments of the value chain, including steel, chemicals, engineering, developers, installers, power sales. European solar SMEs and large corporations are united in the belief that these trade duties must go, and now is the time for the Commission to act and remove them through the ongoing Expiry Review.”
Representing European manufacturing, Board Director of SolarPower Europe Christian Westermeier added: “For European manufacturers in the solar value chain the measures have been ruinous and have led to the loss of thousands of jobs in manufacturing. The removal of these trade measures will stimulate growth in European manufacturing all along the solar value chain and support the process of regaining this lost European employment.”
Board Director of SolarPower Europe Sebastian Berry summed up the feeling of the European solar sector by saying: “The trade measures have been in place for a long time, they have brought only decline to the European solar sector. As a leading European solar company we need the Commission to remove these measures to allow the sector to grow sustainably again. If Europe is serious about leading in renewables, then the solar sector must be allowed to grow again and the European Commission can support this with one easy action – removing the trade measures.”

El cas representa la disputa comercial més gran entre la UE i la Xina i afecta greument la possibilitat que Europa assoleixi els seus objectius climàtics. La revisió de caducitat dels drets comercials aplicats als mòduls i cèl·lules solars originàries de la Xina està en curs i s'ha d'acabar el març de 2017.
