Solar trade: Add your logo to a letter to the European Commission

By: Kristina Thoring, Senior Political Communications Advisor


SolarPower Europe is coordinating a public letter calling for the removal of the solar trade measures.

The European Commission will decide by 3 September 2018 to remove or maintain the minimum import price (MIP) and trade duties on imported solar panels and cells.

This letter urges the Commission to remove the 5 year-long solar trade duties, that has only resulted in reduced demand for solar, lost jobs and reduced competitiveness. The letter calls on the EU to look at other policies, such as an industrial strategy, that can boost the entire solar value chain and return growth to the solar sector.

If you want to add your European company to the letter, please contact Kristina Thoring, Senior Political Communications Advisor at SolarPower Europe.
