The China Chamber of Commerce for Import and Export of Machinery and Electronic Products Tuesday protested against the U.S. probe into Chinese clean energy policies.

Representing 154 domestic green energy businesses, the chamber vows to defend Chinese companies' rightful interests within the framework of the World Trade Organization (WTO).

The U.S. probe into China's clean energy sector is "irresponsible" and "typical trade protectionism," said Yao Wenping, vice president of the chamber.

"Chinese enterprises only earn production fees and most profits are acquired by the U.S. enterprises. The U.S. probe, dubbed Section 301, will ultimately impair its own interests," Yao said.

The U.S. Trade Representative's office started the probe on Oct. 15 in response to a United Steelworkers Union's complaint on Sept. 9 that China' s support for its renewable energy sectors gave Chinese producers unfair advantages over competitors.
