On the occasion of the Intersolar in Munich, the world’s largest exhibition for the solar industry, the Alliance for Affordable Solar Energy (AFASE) speaks out against any protectionist measures in the European solar industry.

Both have contributed greatly to making solar energy more affordable and to the creation of thousands of high value jobs across Europe. “China is the second largest trading partner for the EU”, says Jerry Stokes, President of Suntech Europe, an affiliate of AFASE. “Protectionist measures in the solar industry would benefit no one, and European consumers would be among the first to suffer due to higher prices for solar products. Erecting trade barriers would therefore not be in the common interest of the EU.”
