Get a Solid Understanding of the Key Issues Concerning the Section 201 Case

In pursuant to the Section 201 trade cases, President Trump has released the safeguard tariffs on imported solar cells and modules. Solar cells and modules will now be charged 30% tariff in the first year. In the following three years it would decline 5% each year. Also the first 2.5 GW of imported cells is not required to adhere to the four-year additional tariff and is exempted.

Higher module prices are expected to ultimately lead to solar lower installation numbers, especially in the latter half of 2018 and beyond. Some countries are already appealing to the World Trade Commission.

In this session, Peter Kelly-Detwiler, with his expertise in the field of power markets and emerging technologies, will discuss the impacts of the Section 201 trade case, including: when the impacts may take place, effects on employment and installation numbers, attempts to circumvent the tariff, and new planned module factories in the U.S.

You will learn about the impacts resulting from the Section 201 case and the implications for the solar industry, both short-term and longer-term, as well as who is most likely to be affected. You will have a solid understanding of the key issues concerning the Section 201 case and downstream and long-term implications.
