Another anti-subsidy investigation in the solar energy sector has been officially opened by the European Commission (EC). The investigation will look into imports of solar glass from China to the EU.
The complaint was filed by EU ProSun Glass, which claims solar glass from China is being subsidized in China and then sold in the EU at prices below market value, and thus causing material injury to the EU solar glass industry.
The EC has officially launched an anti-subsidy investigation, just after 2 months of the petition being filed by EU ProSun Glass.
Solar glass is a special glass used mainly for the production of solar panels. It is an essential component not just of solar panels, but for many solar energy products.
