Heraeus calls for maintaining free competition in solar modules and photovoltaics products
Dr. Frank Heinricht: "Import duties distort competition."
"While a few companies have expressed interest in creating a situation comparable to the one in the United States-where the U.S. Department of Commerce recently imposed tariffs of up to 250 percent on solar imports from China-this suggestion is counterproductive. Regulation would amount to a distortion of competition, with only a short-term gain. In the long run, no company benefits from state protectionism," Heinricht said.
"The key to maintaining a competitive edge lies in innovation, not government intervention, and only a company's innovations ensure the continued success it needs to thrive in the competitive arena. That is why Heraeus has a long history of close cooperation with companies in the photovoltaics industry," said Heinricht. All of the company's products, including the silver conductive pastes used in solar modules, are continually improved. "We work hand in hand with solar cell manufacturers, and because most production is done locally, we have become part of the value added chain in China," he explained.
