The objective of the webinar will be to discuss recent trends with regard to anti-dumping and other trade remedy measures in the principal solar markets-such as the US, EU, China and India and how this has been shaping solar-PV supply chains. It will also explore specific options that could be pursued within the trading system to discipline trade remedy measures so as to bring about a degree of certainty and predictability for solar PV manufacturers while also addressing questions on fair competition in solar manufacturing.Key Discussion Points :
- What are the recent developments with regard to the use of anti-dumping and other trade remedy measures on solar PV products and how have they been shaping solar PV supply-chains?
- How can concerns on fair competition in the solar PV industry be reconciled with the need to ensure low equipment prices for the scale-up of solar PV installations?
- How can the use of trade remedy measures be better disciplined through various measures including reform of trade-rules?
The SEIA Finance and Tax Seminar, the solar industry’s preeminent tax event, will convene as the current Administration and Congress have made tax reform one of their highest priorities. The seminar will bring together industry legal, financial and solar business experts from the private sector and government for an in-depth look at the tax reform debate on Capitol Hill, the future of the Investment Tax Credit, and other tax incentives.
Join to discuss hot topics such as energy storage as well as important issues around debt, private equity, and tax equity.

The main goal of the conference is to provide a high-level international forum to review and stimulate the progress of the PV market. The event will cover the whole value chain of photovoltaics from materials to systems as well as the non-technological realms such as market development and policies.
The 13th annual SolarPower Summit is recognised throughout the solar sector as the most important event on the development of global solar markets.It is a unique opportunity to discuss policy, business and technology changes and learn more about market trends, identify business opportunities and network with leading sector analysts, experts and key industry stakeholders.

The objective of the webinar will be to discuss the economic impact of local content requirements along the solar PV value chain both in terms of costs as well as development policy tradeoffs in host countries.Key Discussion Points:
- What are the economic development tradeoffs and costs to local content requirements - in a world with competitive global value chains?
- Local content requirements are not permitted for WTO Member countries, yet many countries maintain these requirements without challenge - are there any contexts in which local content requirements have a positive market impact?
- Services provide the vast majority (75%) of economic value added in the global solar value chain - yet goods are the focus of trade conflict. What is the role of "natural" local content in solar systems development in driving sustainable economic development locally?

The objective of this webinar will be to present the co-benefits of a trade deal on environmental goods including tariff cuts in solar-PV goods and how this could be brought to the attention of policy makers by the solar industry.Key Discussion Points:
- How can cuts in import tariffs positively benefit the solar PV value chain and enable cost-reduction for solar PV projects?
- How can import tariff-cuts on solar PV equipment benefit the consumer as well as enable the creation of green-jobs in the solar industry both upstream in manufacturing as well as downstream in services.
- How can the solar industry better convey the message of positive benefits from trade liberalization to policy makers in their respective countries of origin and operation?
