Although the European Union reached a deal in July last year with some solar panel makers in China to set a floor on panel prices and ease contention over claims that China was “dumping” panels below cost in Europe’s solar markets, EU has now set a deadline for implementing tariffs on panels from manufacturers who refused to join the deal. According to IndustryWeek, a two-year tariff program was to begin last month, imposing anti-dumping measures on manufacturers that meet certain criteria. As seen in the U.S., solar panels from China have been flooding the market for a couple of years.
