This supplementary document, accompanying the letter issued by the unified EU PV manufacturing industry in September 2023, offers context and analysis regarding trade flows, price disparities, industrial policy expenditures, and stockpiles in Europe. This is conveyed to the Commission and national policymakers in light of the significant price drop in Chinese modules, which has led to financial hardships and even bankruptcies among ESMC’s members and other European PV manufacturers.

The initial pages of this document outline the current status as of autumn 2023, followed by a series of policy proposals aimed at improving the situation for ESMC’s members.
