The U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) has announced the result of votes for the anti-dumping and countervailing (AD/CVD) duties on China- and Taiwan-imported PV products. The final decision remains the same with U.S. Depart of Commerce’s final ruling in last December, imposing AD and CVD duties above 70% on Chinese makers and AD duties ranging from 11.45% to 27.55% on Taiwanese manufacturers. Nonetheless, the review of 2012’s first phase of AD/CVD duties, which has been reduced down to around 17.5%, creates a new opportunity for Chinese manufacturers but brings harsher situation to Taiwanese products.

Japan, another focus of global solar industry, is now reviewing its renewable policies including FiT schemes and installing capacity of several kinds of renewables. The government hopes to come up with new policies which help balance its supportive programs, financial problems and renewable shares. During the same week, World Future Energy Summit 2015 (WFES 2015) was held in Abu Dhabi, and there revealed many innovations that are worthy of paying attention to.
