This article raises some very interesting points on how the decision to end MIP on solar imports from China can affect Europe's battery energy storage sector. Arnaud Chaperon from Total suggests that European solar demand is more driven by Member States' tenders rather than the price of the modules and ending the protective measures on European manufacturing sends the wrong message to other sectors.

Will the European battery storage industry require protection from Asian companies who have the ability to scale-up more quickly? China and Korea and already ahead in their production scale so it will be very interesting to see if the European Commission does anything to protect European battery suppliers.
