Japan's power generation recovered in 2017 after 3 years of decline.

China, India and Japan accounted for 3/4 of the global electricity production rise in 2017

Most of the increase in global power generation in 2017 occurred in Asia, with China contributing to half of the growth due to a high demand combined with the fast development of generating capacities, followed by India and Japan.
Power generation contracted in the United States against lower electricity demand, but increased in Canada, and in the European Union to a lesser extent. It stagnated in Russia but surged in Turkey and in the Middle-East, due to soaring generation in Iran.

India mulls over 25% safeguard duty on solar imports from China

The Indian Directorate General of Trade Remedies (DGTR) has recommended the implementation of a 25% safeguard importation duty on solar cell imports from China and Malaysia for a 2-year period. The proposal has not yet been approved by the government and the duty will start at 25% in the first year, then be reduced to 20% for the first six months of the second year and to 15% in the final six month period. The proposal is very similar to the safeguard duty levied by the United States in January 2018, which set up anti-dumping tariffs on imported solar cells and modules at 30% during the first year and then gradually declining to 15% after a 4-year period.
