U.S. Said to Investigate China Clean-Energy Aid at Union Urging

The U.S. will open an investigation of China’s aid to its clean-energy producers following a complaint by the United Steelworkers union, according to two people familiar with the decision.

Accepting the petition filed by the union last month may lead to the U.S. filing a complaint at the World Trade Organization over subsidies that violate global trade rules. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the decision hasn’t been announced.

Illegal export credits, preferences in bidding, restrictions on the export of minerals used in production and discrimination against foreign firms give Chinese producers of renewable-energy products an unfair advantage over competitors, the union said in a complaint filed with the U.S. Trade Representative’s office last month.

The U.S. Trade Representative’s office has a deadline of Oct. 24 to decide if it will accept the complaint and formally investigate the case.
