A look at the concentration of PV players
Through photovoltaics, China and its industrialists want to organise the world in their own way. They are doing so methodically and patiently. They are now reaching the end of the evolution originally planned, the concentration of world production in a few players who can, as the alleged silicon shortage has shown, organise panel prices to their sole benefit. This is the terminal phase. Is this clear enough for the authorities to take corrective action? Is it possible given the entanglement of commercial interests? Is there a way to take safeguard measures without retaliation from China? Or will we let it happen, at the risk of overpaying for solar panels in a few semesters?
