What price index should a new MIP be based on over the next 18 months?

By Sonia Dunlop, Policy Advisor, SolarPower Europe

The MIP affects the bottom line of pretty much every solar project in Europe, and the Commission is currently looking for input (link to questionnaire document) on what a new (and improved?) mechanism should look like - and critically which price index it should be based on. PV Insights? pvXchange? This would apply to all imports from China into the EU, including the manufacturers that have withdrawn from the current MIP.
