Obama Admin Takes Aim at China’s Renewable-Energy Subsidies

Lucia Green-Weiskel, Tina Gerhardt

Last week, in a move that pits American labor against China's green-technology industry, the Obama administration filed a complaint with the World Trade Organization over China's wind-power subsidies.

The U.S. move challenges China's rapid growth in the renewable-energy market, and also throws the weight of the administration behind the unions, elevating concern about Chinese competition to the level of official U.S. policy.
