‘Prijs zonnepanelen VS fors omhoog door importtarief op Chinese panelen’

AMSTERDAM – De Verenigde Staten hebben gisteren besloten om de importtarieven voor Chinese zonnepanelen te verhogen met 250 procent. Dit om Amerikaanse zonnepanelen aantrekkelijker te maken voor kopers, maar critici denken dat de prijzen uiteindelijk juist gaan stijgen. Dit meldt Bloomberg vandaag.

Het Amerikaanse ministerie van Economische Zaken stelde dat Chinese fabrikanten hun cellen op de Amerikaanse markt verkochten onder de kostprijs en kondigde voorbereidingen aan om belastingen van 31 tot 250 procent in te stellen op de aankoop van Chinese zonnepanelen. Het exacte belastingpercentage hangt af van de betreffende fabrikant.


Een woordvoerder van Chinese Buitenlandse Zaken zegt dat de belastingverhoging de samenwerking op het gebied van schone energie tussen de VS en China schaadt. Een woordvoerder van het Chinese ministerie van Economische Zaken noemt de beslissing ‘oneerlijk’ en beschuldigt Amerika van protectionisme.

Jigar Shah, voorzitter van de Coalition for Affordable Solar Energy, denkt dat extra belastingen op Chinese zonnepanelen geen positief effect zullen hebben op de rest van de Amerikaanse zonne-energie-industrie en dat het uiteindelijk zal leiden tot prijsverhogingen.

    Trump was surrounded at Friday’s event by officials from Customs and Border Protection as well as surviving family members of those who have loved ones killed by undocumented immigrants. Attorney General William Barr was also at the President’s veto event.
    While some lawmakers including some Republicans — have argued against the President’s use of national emergency powers in this instance, the Justice Department set forth a robust defense of the President’s authority to do so in a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell earlier this month, according to a copy obtained by CNN on Friday.
    “The President acted well within his discretion in declaring a national emergency concerning the southern border,” wrote Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd, setting out the legal basis for the proclamation under the National Emergencies Act and additional statutory authorities, which largely tracks an internal memo issued by the Office of Legal Counsel at the Justice Department.
