A coalition representing over one hundred American and Chinese solar companies has spoken out to diffuse the heated solar disputes. The Coalition for Affordable Solar says actions between the two countries risk igniting a damaging and counter-productive trade war.

It has been heavily critical of the investigations, launched when German company SolarWorld alleged to the US government, that China is unfairly subsidizing its solar manufacturers. Many Chinese leading solar firms retaliated by bringing its own case against the US.

They accused American companies of dumping of polysilicon, one of the key raw materials for the production of the panels. Our correspondent Daniel Ryntjes brings us more from Washington DC.
