The U.S. International Trade Commission has informed the WTO that it is moving forward with its investigation into whether Suniva and SolarWorld deserve “global safeguard” protection from their competitors.
After originally being cool to Suniva’s petition to the U.S. International Trade Commission for protection from its Chinese competitors, SolarWorld has reversed its stance and joined the complaint as a co-petitioner.
The International Trade Commission decided late tonight to move forward under Section 201 of the Trade Act of 1974 to investigate whether the bankrupt module maker deserves protection from its Chinese competitors, with potentially severe results for the U.S. solar market.
IHS Markit says the complaint creates uncertainty among module manufacturers, who can no longer offer price guarantees to clients until the case is resolved.
The Bonn court has confirmed to pv magazine that Horst Piepenburg was named temporary administrator for SolarWorld. The company’s German subsidiaries have also filed for insolvency.
