Will Solar Import Tariffs Hurt U.S. Alternative Energy?

China’s emergence as a global leader of investment in clean energy projects poses serious threat to U.S based operators for the Alternative Energy industry.

Notably, China installed 50 GW of solar PV in 2017, smashing the 10.6 GW count of the United States.

Along with third-quarter results, Jinko Solar issued a guidance that called for full-year shipment of 9.6-9.8 GW, about 10% of global share.

Going beyond its obvious dominance in solar, the country has become a pioneer in wind power. China Energy Investment Corporation is now the world’s largest developer of wind energy, post the acquisition of China Guodian.

Import Tariff on Solar Modules: In January 2018, the U.S. government announced the levy of 30% tariff on import of solar panel components. In four years’ time, the tax rate is expected to come down to 15%. Following the news, U.S. solar stocks moved up buoyed by hopes that such trade restrictions will create jobs for Americans.

This was part of Trump’s broader protectionist agenda to help U.S. manufacturers against foreign producers who flood the market with cheaper solar modules. The U.S. administration argued that the Chinese government subsidized solar manufacturers and allowed them to sell products in the United States at less than their fair market value. This resulted in increased price competition among the U.S. solar stocks and more than two dozen companies were forced to stall operations.  " data-reactid="32" style="margin-top: 0px; margin-bottom: 1em; color: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', serif; font-size: 18px; orphans: 2; white-space: normal; widows: 2; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);">This was part of Trump’s broader protectionist agenda to help U.S. manufacturers against foreign producers who flood the market with cheaper solar modules. The U.S. administration argued that the Chinese government subsidized solar manufacturers and allowed them to sell products in the United States at less than their fair market value.

U.S. solar industry advocates, however, have been raising strong objections against the move. The U.S. Solar Energy Industries Association predicted that the tariff may cut forecasted solar installations in 2018 by nearly 20%, to 9 gigawatts from 11 gigawatts, and lead to the loss of 23,000 jobs in the United States, the world’s fourth-largest solar market after China, Japan and Germany.

Research firm Wood Mackenzie also estimated that over the next five years, the tariffs will reduce U.S. solar installation growth by 10-15%.

According to GTM Research, this new tariff is expected to increase solar module costs by 10-12 cents per watt, based on current U.S. import prices of 35 to 40 cents per watt. According to an earlier analysis, a 10 cent per watt tariff is expected to slow the solar market by 8.3%.

Other Import Tariffs: In March 2018, the Trump administration proposed to impose a 24% tariff on steel imports and a 10% tax on aluminum imports. Now, steel and aluminum are important commodities for critical wind, solar and storage components. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, operational aluminum smelters in the United States have declined from 23 in 1993 to five in 2018. So, industries are dependent on imported aluminum and a tariff on the same will have an impact on the renewables industry.

GTM Research, MAKE Consulting and Wood Mackenzie collectively calculate the resulting price increase in commodities could potentially result in a 3-5% increase in the levelized cost of energy for U.S. renewable power plants, leading to slightly lowered forecasts for project deployments. According to the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), steel and aluminum tariffs could add cost of 2 cents per watt to utility-scale solar projects, which is a significant increase on top of what the association sees as "job-killing" solar tariffs.

The Trump Effect: The present U.S. administration doesn’t have a friendly stance toward alternative energy sources. In June 2017, President Trump had announced his decision to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement. Many fear that whatever progress the United States has made last year toward pollution mitigation and renewable assets expansion in accord with the Paris agreement will now be in vain.

The current administration issued an executive order to roll back the Clean Power Plan – which was the preceding administration’s signature climate policy to curb carbon emissions to 32% below 2005 levels by 2030 at coal-fired power plants.

The annulment of the Clean Power Plan, if approved, will lift the ban on coal leasing on federal lands, scrap regulations to curb methane emissions from oil and gas production, and lead to reconsideration of "social cost" of carbon emissions in all regulatory actions.

China’s leading global position in terms of electricity generation from renewable sources poses competitive threat to the U.S. alternative energy industry. The current scenario, where Trump administration seems to be opposing the rise of the industry as is evident from the imposition of the aforementioned tariff, surely lends China a competitive advantage.

Of course, importing cheap solar modules from China was hampering the industry to some extent. But since the United States has to rely on these imports, levying heavy duty on these items isn’t wise as is evident from the looming trade war tensions.

Instead, we suggest the two nations should settle their dispute if they want to progress with the clean energy environment plans. This is because the countries are dependent on each other in terms of trade and slapping high taxes on Chinese manufacturers may do more harm than good for the U.S. industry.

    Before let you know how to make a solar panel, let us understand “What are solar panels?”Solar panels use silicone cells to capture sunlight and turn the electrons into energy which we can use for electricity. With so many methods for generating electricity either through renewable or non-renewable methods, solar panels are a fantastic way to utilize earths free access to energy since the sun tends to provide us with more energy than our planet needs.Okay, so back to “How to Make a Solar Panel”, there are several steps.Step 1, Shop for and buy the silicon cells. There are many types of solar cells with different efficiency on the markets, usually we choose mono-crystalline solar cells for small wattage applications, the cell size is 125mm x 125mm, 3.2 Watt per cell...

    How do Solar Panels Work? First let us Introduce the working principle of solar panels, with the global energy increasingly tense, solar energy as a new energy has been vigorously developed, in which we use the most in life is solar cells. Solar cells are mainly made of semiconductor materials. Photoelectric conversion occurs when photoelectric materials absorb light energy to produce current.What is the working principle of solar cells? Solar cells are devices that directly convert sunlight energy into electricity through photoelectric or photochemical effects. When sunlight shines on a semiconductor, some of it is reflected off the surface and the rest is absorbed or transmitted by the semiconductor. Some of the absorbed light, of course, becomes hot, while others collide with ...

    This roof in Newcastle has become the first in Australia to be covered with specially printed solar cells. Credit: University of Newcastle, Author providedAustralia's first commercial installation of printed solar cells, made using specialised semiconducting inks and printed using a conventional reel-to-reel printer, has been installed on a factory roof in Newcastle. The 200 square metre array was installed in just one day by a team of five people. No other energy solution is as lightweight, as quick to manufacture, or as easy to install on this scale.Our research team manufactured the solar modules using standard printing techniques; in fact, the machine that we use typically makes wine labels. Each solar cell consists of several individual layers printed on top of each other, which ...
