The UK solar sector could be set for a round of audits as part of an enforcement effort of the EU-China price undertaking, according to a senior industry figure.The agreement currently calls on Chinese modules to be sold into the EU for no less than €0.53/W. Stories of various workarounds to the rules have circulated widely in the industry since the undertaking came into force at the turn of the year.Writing for Solar Power Portal, Jerry Hamilton, director of renewables and energy solutions, Rexel Energy Solutions warned that impending enforcement efforts could mean hefty penalties for those circumventing the rules.“Suggestions are strong that audits will commence as early as next month to establish where any breaches in the anti-dumping agreement have occurred,” he said in his Renewable Jerry blog.
