We have long been of the view that anti-subsidy and anti-dumping duties are a disproportionate measure to protect a small cabal of interests from the European module manufacturing industry, in light of the repressive effect they have on the industry as a whole.  Reductions in the key costs of solar installations would give a massive and much-needed boost to the volume of installations, and in light of criticism of the UK for failing to meet modest carbon reduction targets, this should be welcomed. 

If, as it's indicated, some form of compromise is brokered which results in a substantial reduction to the MIP, then this would of course be welcome, but I wonder whether extensions of these measures then encourage the ProSun lobby to turn towards other increasingly-efficient manufacturing territories, such as India and Vietnam?  

in the meantime, let's hope the supply chain costs for solar in the EU can be pushed down and a new wave of parity solar developments can get funding and more importantly, get building.
