Australian media: Regarding Australia's future, 90 percent of Australia's solar panel imports depend on China


2021-11-25: [Article Link] "When do we start local manufacturing? This is Australian technology, but now we import solar panels 90% from China." According to a report by the Australian News Network on the 25th, Australian Energy Minister Angus Taylor participated in a media program on the same day and was questioned by the host. According to the report, as "one of the most important technologies related to the future of the country", Australia is unable to "walk independently"-Australia imported solar panels, more than 90% from China; of all the solar panels in Australia, about 80% are made in China. As for why this technology is so important, the report mentioned that solar energy is considered a key technology in Australia's future. And as Australia promotes net zero emissions, solar energy will also become the main source of energy for Australian households. The importance of solar panels is evident. In the day's program, the host looked hostile to China. A series of questions were sent to Taylor about Australia's "over-reliance on China" on solar panels. The host first asked: "When will we start local manufacturing? This is Australian technology, but now we import solar panels 90% from China." "This is a focus (of our) focus. We have regarded solar technology as a key technology in Australia and will be a priority, "Taylor said." In Australia, we have the highest domestic solar energy utilization rate in the world. We want to see more manufacturing in Australia." According to the report, Taylor was asked to elaborate on the government's plan to increase the production of local solar panels. The host asked: "You last week in local food production has invested 33 million Australian dollar, then are you going to in the field of solar energy inputs and how much is it?" In this regard, Taylor's answer is: the government is "still trying to solve this problem". Taylor said that there is no doubt that we have invested a lot of money in solar energy in this country and will continue to do so in the next few years. He also encouraged the public to support local producers. Australian media said expects the solar panels of the installed capacity in the next 10 years increased by a factor of 4 to 2030, almost Australia accounted for the total energy amount of the half. The ideal is plump, but many times the reality is very bony. Some politicians and media in Australia often use Chinese topics to attract attention. Regarding China-Australia relations, China has repeatedly stated its position. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin once said that the current difficult situation in China-Australia relations is entirely caused by Australia. The top priority is that Australia should face up to the crux of the setback in the relations between the two countries, abandon the Cold War mentality and ideological prejudice, respect the basic facts, treat China and China's development objectively and rationally, and earnestly uphold mutual respect, the principle of equal treatment handles the relations between the two countries, stops for one's own political self-interest, advocates the so-called "Chinese coercion", and does more things that are conducive to enhancing mutual trust and promoting practical cooperation between the two countries, rather than the other way around.
