On 21 August, the majority of EU member states rejected the request for the initiation of expiry reviews with regards to the anti-dumping and anti-subsidy measures for crystalline solar PV modules and cells originated in or consigned from the People’s Republic of China. As such, the undertaking on the minimum import price (MIP) is likely to end on 3 September after almost five years in place. The decision could still be appealed before the European Court in Luxembourg but at this stage, the likelihood of a successful appeal seems minimal. 

In our latest PV Installations Tracker published in June, we had already assumed as our most-likely scenario that the MIP would not be extended after September. Therefore, IHSM will not be making any major revision of the Q3 2018 installation forecast that will be published in two weeks.
