EU slaps levies on Chinese solar panel imports

The European Union announced Tuesday that it is imposing anti-dumping levies on imports of Chinese solar panels, in a move that could trigger a trade war between two of the world's largest economies. EU Trade Commissioner Karel De Gucht said the 27-nation bloc will impose a tariff of about 12% on the import of solar panels, cells and wafers from this week, increasing it to an average of 47% in August unless a settlement is reached with China in the next 60 days. China, the world's largest producer of solar panels, is accused by the EU of selling them below-cost — a tactic known as dumping — to corner the market. Its exports of solar panels to Europe totaled 21 billion euros in 2011. The cheap Chinese products are flooding the market and threaten to bring down EU manufacturers, De Gucht told journalists in Brussels. According to EU calculations, a fair sale price for Chinese solar panels should 88% higher than what they are currently being sold for.

Breakthrough Green Program, Project Volt Gas Volt, Can Make Nuclear, Natural Gas, Fracking, and First Generation Biofuels Obsolete

A breakthrough green renewable energy program, Project Volt Gas Volt, was called for this week at the EU Parliament in Brussels in an announcement made by Corinne Lepage, Member of the European Parliament (and former French Minister of the Environment) and American Professor of Management, Robert I. Bell. Renewable energy can now "keep the lights on" without disruption, thanks to a new technology and long term financing proposal for the project, making it possible to store surplus energy from wind, solar and nuclear sources, potentially rendering nuclear energy, natural gas, "fracking" and first generation biofuels obsolete.
