At the end of March, the U.S. Department of Commerce announced the preliminary determination of anti subsidy for China's photovoltaic power generation products after half a year of waiting for the results of the U.S. anti subsidy and anti-dumping investigation in the domestic solar photovoltaic power generation industry. Among them, the tax rate of two compulsory respondent enterprises is Suntech 2.9%, Trinasolar 4.73%, and the tax rate of other enterprises eligible for separate tax rate is 3.61%
in addition to the countervailing duty rate, the U.S. Department of Commerce announced the anti-dumping duty rate against the mainland photovoltaic industry in May, and the U.S. solar energy industry hopes that the Department of commerce can impose an anti-dumping duty rate of more than 100% to punish the mainland for dumping solar panels to the U.S. market at a price lower than the cost
since the U.S. Department of Commerce made a preliminary judgment on the anti subsidy tax rate for the mainland photovoltaic industry on the 20th, which was less than 5%, far lower than the 20-30% previously expected by the industry, although U.S. President Barack Obama himself was not involved in the decision, he personally visited the Nevada solar photovoltaic power plant on the 21st to defend his energy policy, and believed that the mainland photovoltaic industry disturbed the market price by unfair competition
due to the low double anti tax rate, the share prices of mainland photovoltaic companies, including Trinasolar and Suntech, which are listed in the United States, have soared. On the contrary, the share prices of American photovoltaic companies have suffered heavy falls
in addition, brightball also pointed out that the Ministry of Commerce will also investigate the dumping of photovoltaic industry in the mainland. As the anti-dumping tax rate has always been higher than the countervailing tax rate, the U.S. solar industry is optimistic that the U.S. government should impose high anti-dumping and countervailing tax rates on the mainland industry. This is the highlight, so the final result is still pending
an executive of atlas sunshine power said that at present, although the preliminary determination result of countervailing is only "symbolic", it is still extremely unreasonable. In recent months, atlas has been defending within the legal procedures of the U.S. Department of Commerce, questioning and exerting pressure on the double countervailing investigation of the U.S. government. "Even if the United States has ruled on China's photovoltaic power generation enterprises with a 1% tax rate, it still violates the international trade norms of fair competition."
the above executives said to Xiang that the final tax rate of double anti-dumping will be the sum of the countervailing tax rate issued by the U.S. Department of Commerce this time and the anti-dumping tax rate issued on May 17. "According to international practice, after the oil in the tank is sucked into the oil pump through the filtered oil, the countervailing tax rate is generally relatively small, while the anti-dumping tax rate will be very large, and there are even cases where the tax rate is more than 100%."
Shi Zhengrong: the impact of anti-dumping on Suntech is very small
at present, Suntech Wuxi occupies 20% of the market share in the United States, ranking ahead. The impact of both opposition to this enterprise is naturally obvious. Zhang Jianmin, the investor relations manager of Suntech Wuxi, said that since last September, they have set up a team of lawyers to deal with the "double anti" and actively submitted relevant materials to the U.S. Department of Commerce, "We want the U.S. government to understand that the photovoltaic power generation industry is a globalized industry. Chinese enterprises sell cell modules to the United States and also import production equipment from the United States. Sanctions against China will naturally affect American enterprises that realize the ductile processing of brittle materials."
at the 2012 Boao Forum for Asia, Shi Zhengrong, chairman and CEO of Wuxi Suntech Power Holding Co., Ltd., said in an exclusive interview, "the anti-dumping measures taken by Europe and the United States against China's photovoltaic industry have little impact on the operation and performance of Wuxi Suntech." He revealed that Wuxi Suntech has many overseas branches, which can eliminate the negative impact of anti-dumping, although there is no lack of controversy and opposition
Jingke: still optimistic about the U.S. market.
isabellechristensen, North American director of Jingke energy, said that we are actively working to expand brand awareness in the U.S. market
Christensen said that if the U.S. government imposes a tariff of 10 cents per watt on each PV module, Jinke energy can still sell PV modules made in China in the U.S. market and continue to maintain strong competitiveness. She said that if the tariff increase is much higher than this level, the company plans to supply photovoltaic modules produced by a factory in Ontario, Canada to American customersChristensen also said that although she hoped the price would rise, it would not. She said that due to the excess global manufacturing capacity, and many projects under development are based on low prices, there is little possibility of price increase
Yingli: we have no dumping products
"as we stated in the testimony submitted to the International Trade Commission, we have no dumping products, and we also believe that we have not received any unfair subsidies. Regardless of the final investigation results, we will continue to work on the development of American photovoltaic until it passes strict tests before it can be put into use in the market." Robert Petrina, the managing director of Yingli Green Energy's U.S. subsidiary, responded after the anti subsidy results were released
ENN group: realize localized production in the United States
a person from the marketing department of ENN group said that compared with the past, the photovoltaic market pattern has changed, and the focus will inevitably shift from Europe to China and the United States in the next few years, while the competition in the Chinese market is naturally fierce, so the United States is an important market that must not be abandoned. "The outcome of this double reverse is unknown. Investing in the United States in advance is equivalent to an insurance. If the United States significantly increases tariffs, local production can be achieved; in addition, ENN intends to spin off its solar business and list in the United States, which is also a foreshadowing."
Savi: implement anti-dumping investigation against the United States
in the face of the double anti-dumping investigation in the United States, in late January this year, Savi LDK and other four photovoltaic enterprises formally submitted applications to the Ministry of Commerce of China, requesting anti-dumping and countervailing investigations on polysilicon produced in the United States
a senior executive of Jiangsu Zhongneng, who asked not to be named, once revealed in a media interview that "we are also cooperating with downstream photovoltaic peers, which is a counter action to the 'double anti' of the United States". Zhonghua glass () Department
