Letter to Commissioner Cecilia Malmström on trade barriers on solar panels

In this letter CAN Europe, E3G, EKOenergy, Greenpeace and WWF urge Cecilia Malmström, European Commissioner for Trade, to end the trade measures on imported solar panels immediately through the Expiry Review.

Solar power is one of the key technologies that the European Union needs to effectively decarbonise and meet its Paris Agreement commitments. The organizations are therefore concerned that the current tariffs on imported solar panels are making solar power more expensive and slowing down the deployment of solar power in Europe.
