This has already happened, e.g., with solar panels and wind turbines from China, raising the costs of renewable energy, and thus undermining the global warming mitigation effort. To be sure, WTO trade remedy rules have long been widely abused for protectionist purposes. A country can impose high tariffs on an imported item from another country by claiming its price has been artificially depressed or subsidized by the government in order to export – or 'dump' – them at a price lower than the domestic price. No deterrent is imposed against the offending country even if a WTO dispute settlement panel rules that the ostensibly anti-dumping tariff-raising action was wrongly taken, even though the exporting country has lost considerable export earnings in the interim. Furthermore, similar actions can be repeated without impunity with no threat of penalty.

Riyadh plans to start the first round of bidding for projects under the program, which would produce 10 gigawatts of power. Aside from the domestic consumption of electricity, Al-Falih said there was an opportunity to sell both power derived from "green" methods and the materials used to produce renewable energy, like solar panels or wind turbines. "We will export the power itself, we will export the components and services," he said. Saudi Arabia is attempting to diversify its economy after it was hit hard by the oil-price crash. An OPEC deal saw an oil production cut come into force at the beginning of this year, something Al-Falih indicated was being adhered to. "Everybody I talk to is not only committing, some of them have actually told me that they have exceeded their commitments," he said. He would not speculate on how the oil price would look later this year, but said the current figure includes "an element of uncertainty" about compliance with the Opec production cut deal.

KOLKATA: Eleven solar panel manufacturers in export oriented zones are on the verge of shutting down and another four have already downed shutters saying the import duty structure has rendered them uncompetitive in the local and export markets. “If export oriented units sell their panels in the domestic market, they become un-exempt from duty exemption while their counterparts from Special Economic Zones and Domestic Tariff Areas' remains exempt from such duties.This has resulted in a large number of units in export oriented units on the verge of closing down their operations while some has already been shut because they have been rendered uncompetitive,“ said Subrata Mukherjee, director at Sova Power and founding member of the All India EoU Solar Manufacturers. “There are around 46 solar panel manufacturers in India of which 11 are in export oriented units and they are the ones not being able to compete with their counterparts in other zones.

While not exactly panel-less, LGs paper-thin W-Series OLED TVs are just 1 mm thin and flexible making them a nice compromise between traditional larger LCD screens and projectors. So what do we think the future of TV will entail? Its probably not huge panels, or pricey projectors, but something in between. Want a 4K projector right now?

Autocar can confirm the new Mercedes-Maybach GLS will receive its own unique styling elements, many of which will be drawn directly from the racey Mayach 6 Coupe concept revealed at the Pebble Beach Concourse in 2016 as a preview to the future of Mercedes-Benz’s Maybach sub-brand. Despite retaining the same aluminium, high strength steel and composite body panels as future standard GLS models, the new up-market SUV is expected to sport a different grille and unique headlamp and tail lamp graphics as well as added chrome and individual wheel designs in a move aimed at providing it with a more noble appearance in line with the current Mercedes-Maybach S-class. Secrecy surrounds the layout of the new Mercedes-Maybach GLS, although there are suggestions it could also boast an extended wheelbase in a bid to provide it with the sort of rear seat legroom offered by the luxury SUV competition.

Both cars were delivered in June 1991. A pearl white on red leather example, this LM is a one-owner truck with an astonishingly low odometer tally of just 5,400 kilometers (3,384 miles)—or around 125 miles per annum. After many years spent in a climate-controlled garage it is now on offer for the first time since new. In 1990, Lamborghini received a special two-part order that called for an LM/American (the vehicle offered here) and a Diablo for a grand total of $382,210. Both cars were delivered in June 1991. Offered on the market for the very first time since new, this stunning all original LM002 has been stored in a climate controlled garage the entirety of its pampered life.

Trump is spending his last night as a private citizen at Blair House, a residence for dignitaries across Pennsylvania Avenue from the White House. Even as officials prepare for the inauguration, with all the pomp and solemnity linked to the transfer of power in the United States as Obama leaves office after eight years as the American leader, two more of Trump's Cabinet selections are facing confirmation hearings before Senate panels. Former Texas Governor Rick Perry, picked as Trump's energy secretary, is saying that he regrets his comment during his unsuccessful 2012 presidential bid that the Department of Energy he now would head should be abolished. "My past statements made over five years ago about abolishing the Department of Energy do not reflect my current thinking," Perry said in prepared remarks. "In fact, after being briefed on so many of the vital functions of the Department of Energy, I regret recommending its elimination.

A wild, overgrown garden greeted me and as I stepped inside, I felt as though I may just be in a French apartment. The French feel is thanks to Katia's Parisian roots and the clever paneling she had installed in the living and dining areas. Katia's father, a painter and sculptor, helped with the dimensions and design and they had the panels locally made by Cape Town timbers. These panels and mouldings give the home a definite European twist. READ MORE »
