Disputes between China and the United States over the renewable energy industry are intensifying.

After the U.S. Department of Commerce launched anti-dumping and countervailing measures against Chinese photovoltaic (PV) energy products in May and wind power products in July, the Chinese Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM) launched a probe into several U.S. renewable energy projects on August 20. The ruling was that six renewable energy projects from the United States have violated World Trade Organization anti-subsidy rules, distorting international trade.

The MOFCOM announcement said that according to the provisions of Foreign Trade Barriers Investigation Rules, the ministry will take relevant measures in accordance with the law, requiring the United States to cancel the investigations that are inconsistent with WTO agreements and give fair treatment to renewable energy products imported from China.

For China, this may be a powerless response. But insiders are worried that disputes between China and the United States over the renewable energy industry may harm the two sides' healthy cooperation in the sector and have a negative impact on the world's new energy development.
