SolarWorld ups game in global solar trade war

FRANKFURT/DUESSELDORF (Reuters) - German group SolarWorld may take steps against alleged price dumping by Chinese rivals in Europe after its U.S. unit filed a complaint, the latest move in the global solar trade war.

"We are currently reviewing several options for how to throw this forward over here," Frank Asbeck told Reuters on Thursday.

SOLARWORLD (SWV.XE)Industries Americas said on Wednesday it had filed a complaint on behalf of seven U.S. solar panel makers, asking for duties on Chinese solar products.

The U.S. solar companies said Chinese producers can aggressively undercut U.S. prices because they receive cash grants and other subsidies in China.

"The EU has to wake up now to make sure we are having fair competition over here, too," Asbeck said.
